With Gratitude:

  • Thank you, Beckett and family, for providing nutritious snacks for our class this week!
  • Thank you, Grandmom Mary! Ava’s grandmother helped out in our class all day on Wednesday. She read students a story, helped with their books, and guided their social studies projects. Thank You, Mary, it was a joy to have you here!
  • Thank you for all of the book orders!  We were able to get quite a few books with points for the classroom too!!

What’s happening in the 3-4:

Students are working on their final project for our Colorado History Unit. This project-based learning unit is culminating with a group study of an important person in Colorado History. Students are working to answer the question, “How did this person of importance in Colorado History affect where you live today?” After researching, using various resources like newspapers, books, and printed articles, students have written and illustrated picture book biographies of these important people in history.

We look forward to sharing some of these historical picture books with you at the Winter Festival. Also on show will be student’s poetry books, so please look for those. Lastly, you can expect to hear some incredible songs that the kids (and Veronica) have been working diligently with. Our personal favorite (spoiler alert!) is Silent Night sung in German!

Homework:

Reading homework: Read at least 30 minutes and log it every night. Thank you for supporting this routine at home.

Friday to Thursday homework: Homework this week consists of exercises in a variety of subjects: math, spelling, grammar, and keyboarding.
