Even though we will have limited time in the classroom this week our week is still very full and busy. We will be completing our end of unit America Symbols projects, taking our Unit 2 math assessment, and having lots of fun with our Pumkinos. Your child should have come home with a baby pumkino that they adopted on Friday. They have named and measured their pumkinos and have signed a contract about taking care of them over the next week. This a third grade tradition that the students love. I can't even tell you how much excitement was in the room on Friday when I introduced the students to the project. This project isn't just about the fun though, it allows us to practice our listening and speaking skills, measurement skills, and expand our creativity. All week we will be taking time out of our days to share our pumkino projects. Tomorrow your child should bring their pumkino back to school along with the house they built for their pumkino. We will all be sharing the homes we constructed with each other. Your child should also have come home with a pumpkino packet on Friday. It has a schedule along with more details about what your child should bring to school each day. Please let me know if you have any questions.
The class contact list will be printed and sent home tomorrow, please check your child's homework for it. If you have not completed the form please do so before the morning to be included on the list. On Tuesday, October 31st we will be having a halloween parade and celebration. All students are invited to wear their costumes to school. More information about our celebration will be sent out later this week. Finally, our first book order came home on Friday. If you would like to order any books for your child please return the completed form along with a check by Friday. In addition, you can order online through the scholastic website.
Have a great week!
