I sit here about to type “Happy Holidays!” and I am shaking my head in disbelief at how fast the first half of this school year has gone. There is NEVER a dull moment in 3M. Each day is filled with learning, laughing (just ask your child..there is SO much laughing), and smiling. I feel truly lucky to have the privilege of teaching (and learning from) your child.
This week is going to be a wrap-up week. We will review Chapter 5 tomorrow and take a math test on Thursday. It is my goal to get Chapter 4’s tests back to you by Wednesday. We are focusing on following directions in reading. Almost every author has turned in his/her persuasive letter but the deadline is Thursday for anyone not finished.
We started presenting the Holiday Projects today. I am SO impressed with what I’ve seen. We’ve already learned so much from the six presenters who went today! I can’t wait to see what else is presented in the next few days.
Third grade has the opportunity to go caroling on Wednesday at Autumn Leaves Memory Care. It is from 6:00-7:00pm. Please let me know if you plan on coming! A note went home last week with additional details.
Holiday parties are Friday! Please remember that it is a shortened day on Friday.
I hope everyone has a safe, relaxing, wonderful break and holiday! I look forward to hearing all the stories in the new year. If you go anywhere fun…don’t forget to tweet us!
Reader’s Choice Question:
What is your favorite holiday book? Do you have any traditions with these books?
What are you going to do as a reader over winter break?
*Here’s my answer:
I have TWO favorite holiday books. My first favorite is this:We read this book EVERY year when I was little. I’ve sadly misplaced it which is why I haven’t read it yet. I’ll look for it this week to see if I can find it.
My second favorite book is this:Every year since I think 1992, we read this on Christmas Eve. We write down inside the front cover who read it. My grandpa used to read it to us but he has passed away. It’s a wonderful memory to look in the front and see his name and handwriting. This book also glows in the dark! My sister and I still crowd in the bathroom, hold it up to the light, and then turn the lights off to see the glowin the dark pages. We LOVE it 🙂
As a reader, I’m going to read at least 5 books. I have SO many books I want to read but haven’t had much time. I can’t wait.
