By 8:30ish we were back in the ALL PURPOSE room for our very first CHARACTER COUNTS assembly of the year! At this assembly the WORLD TRAVELING YO YO MAN was here to tell us why SCHOOL IS COOL with some pretty neat yo yo tricks! He taught us about RESPONSIBILITY and a few other character traits! He showed us some amazing yo yo tricks and even did a magic trick for us! After his presentation, Mrs. Elder handed out the CHARACTER COUNTS awards for this month. I am very proud of MR. KRISTOPHER HAMBY-WILSON! He does and OUTSTANDING job at school every single day and he was this months award winner!
Then we came back to class, and had time to do our CALENDAR BOOK, SPELLING BOOK, and make a DAILY 5 CHOICE! Before we knew it, it was time for recess and lunch!
After lunch we opened our CLASS STORE for the very first time! Some kiddos bought a few things, some kiddos bought only one thing, and some kiddos opted to save their money for the next store. In third grade we open the store ONCE a MONTH. It was fun to watch them shop, hear them make decisions, and see who our spenders are and who are savers are! Everyone who bought something WROTE A CHECK FOR IT! This is the very first time in third grade that we have been able to write checks at our first class store! IMPRESSIVE!!
To end the day we had time to review our multiplication flashcards and take our MULTIPLICATION TESTS. I have 3 people who passed their 2's and are moving to 4's on Friday. No one passed their 4's though! We have to keep practicing those facts!! Then we worked on our MENU and had time to get on DREAMBOX or REFLEX.
It was a FABULOUS FRIDAY to say the least! Hope you've had a great weekend! See ya in the morning!
