The grade 9 reading buddies came over today to read to our students. They were doing this as part of their religion service project. It was fabulous to see how our students got to see God's hands in action. We hope to continue this program until December. I tried to upload pictures and video, but there seems to be a glitch with Weebly today. Sorry!
Today we had a marvelous day! Students started "Part 1" of their autumn painting and they will finish it next week. Watch closely as we will post some of their work on our website - http://www.maryviewgr3.com
Students are rewarded throughout the day for good behavior, critical thinking skills, helping out around the room and showing kindness to others like Christ. Today they got to cash in their behavior coupons for toys that were graciously donated by some of our parents. Thank you so much for your support. Next Tuesday is our Social Studies Mapping Test, please review the study guide that was sent home with your child. Have a great weekend!
Yesterday the students celebrated a Thanksgiving Mass at St. Mary's. The students were so well behaved and reverent!
On Thursday, a parent volunteer is going to be calling you to ask if you could contribute in some way to help out with the Halloween party that we are having on October 31st (from 1:15 - 3:20 p.m.). We need volunteers, and items for centers.
A social studies study guide for our mapping test went home with your child today. The test will be on Tuesday next week. Please study with your child at home. The mapping resource that we used was also sent home.
Thanks to all of the parents who have sent in prizes and games for the students. The grade 3 students want to thank you. You truly are amazing!
Our Parent Council has sent home an envelope with your child tonight to get sponsors for the Read-a-thon Fundraiser for our school. Please get as many as you can and record your child's reading each night. Grade 3's are expected to read 20 minutes per night minimum. We had a fire-drill today. No school next Monday.
On October 3rd, children all over the country as well as our class celebrated Read for the Record. The event, presented by Jumpstart in partnership with the Pearson Foundation, began in 2006; since its inception, millions of students have pledged to read the official Read for the Record book on the same day trying to break the World Record Book. This year’s selection was Loren Long’s Otis (Philomel, 2009).
Students are working with words through their Spelling City accounts. Each child's assignments are tailored for his or her needs. Students received their third week of word activities today and were given time in class to complete most of the activities. Please allow time for you child to complete all the word games by Sunday. We had singing practice today. A practice firedrill will happen on Wednesday.
Today we started our Global Read Aloud project. The students are reading Marty McQuire and tomorrow we will start our blogs. Tomorrow is library. Please make sure that your child is reading on Raz-kids tonight. Students may also have some Spelling City to do at home tonight.
