After the store closed, we made a MAD DASH to tour the post office and see what exactly happened to our FLAT PEOPLE once we mailed them! We were ALL able to mail them today and we were sure excited about our tour! We saw where mail comes in, how it is sorted, where the mail carriers pick it up from, and we even learned about how packages are sorted and delivered! You'll have to check out the picture tab to see some of what we saw!
In the afternoon, we signed up CANDY CANE sale jobs! This is our next big fundraiser. The 3rd grade will be selling CANDY CANES all next week. Each candy cane costs 50 cents and can be purchased for a person themself or for friends. The third graders will DELIVER all CANDY CANE FRIEND GRAMS on DECEMBER 18th! We've worked hard this week to get ready for this project so let's hope next week it goes off without a hitch! We are selling in the morning before school and again at lunch time! Mrs. Day and I have purchased all the supplies this time so EVERYTHING we make will be profit! We decided we could donate the labels and the candy canes since we have asked you at home to help us with CHRISTMAS AROUND THE WORLD supplies!
We also spent time in the afternoon finish FLAT STANLEY up by finishing the story, playing a memory game with our vocabulary words, and then taking the SELECTION TEST over the story! This week we tried something new and took a test using a google form and everyone took the test on their chrome books! We just might have to do this again! Lots of scores were SUPER and several kids said they really liked taking the test this way!
To finish the day, we finished up our math lesson over using PARENTHESIS. I am SUPER proud of how hard everyone worked during this time. I was impressed at how quickly we recognized that the position of the parenthesis made a difference with the answer only when the OPERATION symbols DID NOT stay the same throughout the entire problem! IMPRESSIVE math talk for 3:00 on a FRIDAY for sure! If you can comment and tell me the answer to the following problem you can earn $2 at morning meeting on MONDAY!
Have an AMAZING weekend! I cannot wait for MONDAY! I am SUPER DUPER EXCITED to start our Christmas Around the World project!
