Make-a-Flake - Lets you make your own cool snowflake. You can save it and print it too!
We were out of the classroom Friday, December 14 so our projector could be mounted. We also were gifted with a new, 8 foot screen! It is incredible! It will be like sitting in a movie theater at school. Get ready kids, we're going to be using it all the time! Any no one should have any trouble seeing the action! Here is a picture with my daughter, Erin.
Have a nice weekend, kiddos! We only have 4 days of school until vacation starts! Get ready for fun - and hard work. Learning can't stop just because we are going on vacation!

We've only just begun Clementine by Sara Pennypacker and I know you are loving it. I decided to see if there were more Clementine books - and there are! Here is a list of the Clementine books:
Clementine (first book)
Talented Clementine (second)
Clementine's Letter (third - available in April 2008)
I'll try to get copies of them for us to read. Look for them at the public library!
Happy weekend! Hope to see you at the Fall Festival on Saturday!

So sorry a newsletter didn't make it on Monday. I'm sure you've heard about my weekend mishap. If not, read the post below. It makes doing everything much more difficult.
Here is some important information for you.
Picture money is due by Monday, 10/22.
AR Goals are in each student's agenda. Instead of a points goal, we are having a percent correct goal and a # of tests per week goal. Look for an AR print out on Friday that lists all the tests your child took this week. It will have a sticker on it - Met Goal(s) or Did Not Meet Goal(s).
Conferences are this week. Thanks for those parents who have come to discuss their child with me! I look forward to meeting with everyone. If you have not yet scheduled a conference, please get in touch with me ASAP.
A new newsletter WILL come home this Friday, October 19th. Thanks for your continued support!

Ok, I know we are studying the skeleton - but I didn't plan to break a tiny bone in my wrist just for you guys! I fell when I was roller skating with my family on Saturday. They took X-Rays and gave me this lovely, big, black splint. Writing is very hard. Yes, it hurts. No, I won't take off the splint so you can see my arm. There is nothing to look at anyway.
Here is a lovely picture for you to enjoy! You will have to help me a lot the next few days and weeks. I'm not supposed to carry anything with my right hand. What will YOU do to help me?

Lyrics can be found here:
These are the songs we have used in school. Of course, be careful on sites like YouTube - you never know when something might come up that isn't meant for kids!

Math Work Stations are different from regular Math lessons. It helps to have an even number of people. There are:
- Math Games
- Fast Facts
- Week by Week Essentials
- Accelerated Math
- Problem Solving
Math Work Stations help us learn more math, work out problems, let us learn in a fun way, and give us a chance to work with a partner and alone.
Groups work best if they have 2 people. Sometimes it is best to put a boy and a girl together instead of 2 boys or 2 girls.
If you have any questions for us about Math Work Stations, leave them in the "Comments" section!

When we come to school in the mornings, we follow our Morning Routine. Then Mrs. B checks Math Homework. After that we get ready for our Math Lesson. Math Work Stations come next. (We feel smart and excited about Math WS's!!)
Then we all sit on the carpet and read. Soon, we will be switching classes for reading groups! We will also be having AR goals for each month. By this time, we are ready for a snack. Then we are ready to write stories and learn about writing.
After writing, we go to Block. Block classes are: PE, Art, or Music. Then we go back to the classroom and Mrs. B reads aloud a chapter book. Right now we are reading Judy Moody Declares Independence. Then we go to Lunch!
Some days we go to Recess after Lunch. Other days we go back and take AR tests and go to the Media Center for new books. Then we do Literacy Work Stations. They are very fun and help us learn about grammar, drama, cursive, poetry, and listening.
We do Social Studies after. Soon we will start Science. We are tired by this time but we aren't done yet! We still have to copy homework, pack up and write in our Reflection Journals. Then we are ready to go home!
*Written by all 20 students in Mrs. B's 3rd grade.*

We are smart. We like to have fun. We are all talented. We are all good students.
Have a great weekend!!!
A blog is a journal (or log) that is on the Internet for anyone to read. I will tell your parents about it so they can come read!
Now let's make a post together... what should our topic be?
