I think this poems says it best:
I’ve worked with your flower,
And helped it to grow.
I’m returning it now,
But I want you to know…
This flower is precious,
As dear as can be.
Love it, take care of it,
And you will see…
A bright new bloom,
With every day.
It grew and blossomed
In such a wonderful way.
In September just a bud,
January, a bloom;
Now a lovely blossom
I’m returning in June.
Remember, this flower,
As dear as can be,
Though rightfully yours,
Part will always belong to me!
Thank you for such a wonderful school year. It was a pleasure working with not only your beautiful child but with you as well. We made a great team! 🙂
Congratulations to all of my students who met the 30 Book Challenge this year! Each of these students read at least 30 “just right” books of different genres. We celebrated by playing a game of “Octopus” outside and then enjoying ice cream topped with strawberries and blueberries. Mmmm…. Who knew reading could be so sweet?!
Today my students proudly read their fairytales to their kindergarten and first grade buddies. They were the teachers, reading their stories loudly and with expression. Their buddies loved it! Take a look at these 3rd grade authors.
Be sure to have your child read you their fairytale when they bring it home on Thursday. They are a treasure to be kept. 🙂
Thank you all for making Teacher Appreciation Week so special. I was so grateful for all of the kind words and gestures. You are too much! Many warm thoughts to you and your family.
Bravo! Bravo! Congratulations to all of the 3rd grade students on their amazing performance. They all worked very hard on their songs, speaking parts, instrumentals and dances. Rancher Vogelstein confirms it was a great night! Thank you parents for joining us and especially for dusting off your cowboy boots and joining in on the fun! Yeehaw!
Students used number lines to place fractions “precisely” in just the right spot. They were asked to partition each fraction accurately based on its numerator and denominator. In doing this, students could visually see which fractions were equivalent.
The year is 1840. We are pioneers heading west. We may face problems such as floods, droughts, blocked trails, snakes, Native Americans, and lack of food. Wish us luck. Westward Ho!
In math, students will be developing an understanding of fractions as numbers. In this unit, students investigate the meaning of fractions and the ways fractions can be represented and compared. In class students will spend time discussing problems in depth and will be asked to share their reasoning and solutions. It is important that children solve math problems in ways that make sense to them. At home, encourage your child to explain the math thinking that supports those solutions.
