This Week (9/4-9/7)

Hello Wildcat families!
I hope you all have had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
This week, although it's only four days will be jam packed!
On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will be doing whole class reviews for an assessment on Thursday over our most recent read aloud, Third Grade Angels by Jerry Spinelli. 
We will be diving deeper into Readers and Writers Workshop. In reading we will be checking out books from the classroom library (and school library), beginning talks about building stamina as readers and reading conferences. In writing, students will be brainstorming meaningful places and people and begin their first drafts of the year.
In Social Studies students will begin their Citizenship Poster project.
Thank you again for all of your support! I can't wait to see all of your students blossom this year!
PARENTS: Don't forget Parent Orientation this Thursday, September 6, from 5:30-6:30pm.

What a Great Week!

It has been a fantastic week! I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to teach your children this year! This week we have had a lot of fun getting to know one another, learning about great expectations, and beginning our first read aloud!
Be sure to ask your child to show you their planner so they can share with you all of the great activities we have done together.
I hope you all have a restful, safe weekend!
Mrs. Laird
