Merry Christmas 3B Parents!
It has been a busy week and a half full of classroom chatter and excitement. The kids are all definitely ready for Christmas! They were thrilled to enjoy a wonderful Christmas brunch on Wednesday! As always thank you so much to the parents who worked so hard to make it such a success!
I was blown away by your generosity this week. I am SUCH a lucky teacher to be teamed with such supportive, dedicated, and wonderful parents. You have no idea how grateful I am for everything! This is a very special class!
Over break is a perfect time to replenish some school supplies! Some items that seem to be the most commonly used up or misplaced are glue sticks, pencil sharpeners, and highlighters.
Math: We have continued working through Topic 5. Students seem to be grasping the concept of multiplication. Over the Christmas break, the students should begin to practice their math facts. They should begin at zero and work their way up as they master each fact.
Reading: This week, we read 3 different versions of the Gingerbread Man. We started with the original and discussed the setting and character traits of the Gingerbread Man. Next, we read the Gingerbread Man Loose in School! This was a cute book about a very determined gingerbread man. We discussed a number of character traits that described him and found proof in the book of these traits. Check out our class anchor chart:
Next, we read the Gingerbread Girl. We discussed how the Loose in School Gingerbread Man was a “tough cookie,” and the Gingerbread Girl was a “smart cookie.”
*I will be keeping in touch with Blessed Sacrament and especially third grade during my trip. I cannot wait to share updates with the class and to hear how everything is going with them! I know leaving mid-year is not ideal but it is something I know God is truly calling me to do and I feel blessed to have the wonderful opportunity to answer His call. I cannot thank you enough for all of the support you, the children, and the BSS community have given me. I am a very lucky teacher!
I wish all of you a very merry Christmas and a wonderful start to the new year!
