Thanksgiving Break

Happy Friday!  We have been busy today….working on our Thanksgiving plays during our whole group reading time.  This afternoon each small group will be presenting theirs to different classes.  We finished our symmetry turkeys, and wrote about what we will all be doing over our break.  We also had library check out today, so perfect timing to bring home some new books over the break!  There is no reading log for the week, but please try to have students read.

Remember that there is a book order due date of December 3 – check out the “SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDERS” tab for more information.

When we return from break, our Unit Studies for December will be around “Winter Holidays around the World.”  We will study at least 6 different holidays – spending the most time on the ones that are represented in our classroom.   I hope to have students help me when we learn about the ones they celebrate!   All third graders are taking home an optional homework assignment over break – to make a wreath out of family member’s handprints.  If you choose to participate, send it back with your student and they will be hung up.  If you choose not to, that is find as well.
