We have a few important details for you today:
1. We will have a SELECTION TEST over our story "Suki's Kimono" on Thursday this week. We have worked with this story for the last couple of weeks but with testing and all it has been pretty hit and miss so this week we will finish it up with some fun activities. Today we researched a little about CHERRY BLOSSOMS and the kids painted their very own cherry blossom. They are turning out really good!
2. On Friday we will take a SPELLING TEST over words that go along with this story. The kids have this list in their agendas today. EVERYONE will test over only 15 words this week because they only have ONE WEEK to study the words.
3. This week on THURSDAY the next step of their BOOK JACKET project is also due! They are working on the inside front cover flap. The directions they have been given explain it all, but just to remind you.... on the front inside cover they are to write a catchy ten sentence summary of the story. We reminded them today that sentences need to start with capital letters and end with the correct punctuation. They will NOT participate in the COLOR RUN if they do not have this OKAYED by THURSDAY of this week.
4. Our COLOR RUN will be this FRIDAY. They will be bringing home their color run t-shirts this week. They can wear them on FRIDAY and they will also need to have SUNGLASSES for the race. We don't want that color getting in their eyes when it is thrown!
Okay, FINALLY... the best part of our DAY! YAY!!!! We were awarded FIRST PLACE for the DENTAL VIDEO that we submitted. The kiddos are SUPER DUPER EXCITED about this! They worked very hard on this and even were able to teach their first grade buddies a little about DENTAL HYGENE while completing the project! Sooooo SUPER JOB THIRD GRADE!
Have a great evening!
