First Day of School

Tomorrow, August 15th is our first day of the new school year.  I am so excited and "pumped" about the students coming.  The classroom has had a make-over and is ready for them.  On this first day we have a few "usual procedures" to manage in the morning.  At 10:45 the students will begin a Math Scavenger Hunt inside the school and outside (playground).  Each item to be found or solved is directly related to a Common Core Learning Standard.  I plan to use this as a Pre-Test of sorts to help guide my instruction. In March or April we will have the same scavenger hunt as a post-test to help determine growth. 

In the afternoon we will be working on a few writing activities and sharing our illustrations from the summer. 

Year long hint for success...be prepared to write, write and write some more.  3rd Grade is a hallmark year.  It's very important to strive for excellence and have stamina in all we do.

See you soon!
