February 13-17 No school Monday or Tuesday

Fruit bar sale on Wednesday for $1.00! This is a fundraiser for 3rd grade this week!

In readers workshop we concluded our first mystery read aloud, Nate The Great. Each student then selected his or her own mystery story to determine the detectives, setting, clues, mystery, crime, etc. The students are practicing their note taking in their journals. We are not having reading groups as the students have individually selected their own mystery book during independent reading. I am conferencing with each student as well as seeing small groups during this time.

Our new mystery book, Nate the Great Mushy Valentine
The students are taking notes on character traits, character interactions, and paying close attention to the setting in a mystery story.

We made valentine butterflies for our little buddies.

A big thank you to those parents when helped plan our Valentine's Day party, we had a blast!

A great day of voting, creativity, and measuring!

We finally finished our informational writing pieces. We celebrated by cuddling up and falling in love with our room 10 authors. I am very proud of the writing by these 3rd graders.

We celebrated our writing with a sweet treat!!

We concluded our informational writing with an on-demand sample. The strudents write a sample piece of writing before and after each unit.

Over the course of several days, we learned about rounding. The chart below was a helpful hint for the kids.

Our words to practice for this week.
