Third Grade — Mrs. Clemens

For the Week of September 19

Dear Families,

It is so good to be back with the class!  Thank you so much to those who reached out when I was sick. You won't believe this, but I also fell on Sunday and badly sprained my leg.  So, I have been hobbling around and using the wheel chair the past few days.  Hopefully next week I will be 100 %!

 Dot day was super exciting!  We had a blast working with DOTS all day!

This past week:

We are full speed ahead in our reading unit Building a Reading Life.  Miss M has been teaching them Math and they finished up the unit with Pictographs and Bar graphs.  Writing class is full of excitement with the plethora of ideas the students have listed!  In Science, we have totally fallen in the with the Water Cycle and other parts of weather!. Miss M has been taking over teaching religion and the students have explored the story of Noah and God's promises and Tower of Babel with great activities!

This upcoming week:

Christian Character Formation Project   focuses on Saul becoming King.   Our virtue is   RESPONSIBILITY: God's power for you to be accountable to Him and others.

We will continue in our unit in reading and begin reading the Mentor text Stone Fox!  Miss M takes over the Reading lessons next week. In Writing we finish up our beginning of the year procedures.  Math delves into regrouping addition and subtraction.  Science is all about the Weather!

 MAPS math test will be on Friday morning.  Plan a good night's sleep and healthy, hearty breakfast!

Scholastic Book online order: RMQFW Due Date Monday September 20.  Then I will place all online orders.

FALL MUSICAL has been moved to April 29.  Put that in your calendar! :)

ATTENTION:

Hi 3rd grade parents,

This year Mrs. Clemens and Mrs. Haas have decided that "Beach Fun" will be the 3rd grade theme for the school auction. This auction
is a very important fundraiser for our school and really benefits our kids. We are hoping to make our basket stand out in order to get the highest bids possible!
Here are two ways to help:
1. Make a donation of an item or two that fits our theme. Some ideas for donations might be:
beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler, insulated drink cups, adult beverages, a shade umbrella, non-perishable beach snacks, floaties, life jackets, sunscreens, after sun skin care products, sand toys, volleyball, football, beach games, sunglasses, a mini grill, or any other item that you love when having a beach day with your family!

2. The other way to help, that is super easy on us parents, is a monetary donation!!! This can be given to Mrs. Clemens, Ashley Brooks, or myself. She and I are the 3rd grade room parents and we would be happy to go shopping for larger ticket items and some basket fillers once all of the donations are collected. If getting to the school to drop off a donation is difficult please feel free to send it through Venmo. @Courtney-Braun-9
Please label it AUCTION so I can keep track of it.

Unfortunately the auction always comes up so much quicker than we anticipate so please consider helping our classroom with this basket. The auction is being held Oct. 16th. Ashley and I are hoping to get donations in by OCTOBER 8th so that we have time to shop with the monetary donations. Summer items are going on clearance at many stores now so don't forget to check those clearance sections while you're out shopping this weekend!!! Thank you so much for all of your help with this and the support that you give to our school.
