Our calendar book was once again a breeze for us! No one had a birthday to mention and we had already written our name for AUGUST so we were able to take care of our date page and move right in to our clock page. This was done INCREDIBLY well!
After calendar we were able to work on our APPLICATIONS. This was super exciting for ALL of us. I have lots of applicants and tonight my hiring committee is meeting to make their selections. Remember if you applied to be MAYOR, have a speech ready for elections tomorrow. This is one of my favorite parts of 3rd grade! I loved watching them come up with words to describe themselves and enjoyed hearing why they thought they would make a good Mayor or Secretary! "I just love money so I know I should be treasurer." and "My mom would not want me hurt in the line of duty so no way can I be a police officer" were just a couple of things I heard today! Man do I love coming to work every day! =)
Then we took our STAR reading test so that I can see where we are with being able to reading fluently and independently. This is one test which the kiddos take all on their own with absolutely no help. They took it like real CHAMPS with voice levels of 0 and lots of focus and concentration! They deserve a SUPER JOB for sure!
We also had time for some minute math, friend bingo, and to learn about our WEEKLY CHALLENGE BOARD. SOme of them are ready to race in here tomorrow and make an estimate, solve a wordle, and put together a few words on our Boogle board. This kind of trivia really encourages thinking outside the box and in a little different way which we love in 3rd grade!
They were quick to figure out today that I wasn't the only one who sometimes OVER ATE at a Thanksgiving dinner...
after looking at our WEEKLY CHALLENGE BOARD!
~Have a great evening!
