Welcome to 3rd grade! I am so excited to have these amazing kids in my class this year. I am blown away by their ideas, attitudes, and motivation to learn. We are going to have a blast this year! This year, we will have a few projects. We will do a service learning project that is student-led. The 3rd graders will choose a theme and they will be in charge of their own learning. I have poison dart frogs and I told the kids that if they research how to take care of them and how to build their habitat, one will come to school to be our class pet. I have already had kids bring research to class! Incredible. We will have a restaurant and each homeroom will get a chance to be servers and diners. We will also put on a wax museum near the end of the year.
We are working on learning the routines of the Wonders reading program and starting beginning-of-year testing. Please remember to write reading minutes in your child's planner every night. The homework response is due on Friday. Post a comment on the blog on the homework tab, above.

We have started our unit on ecosystems! Students are making books on habitats for their interactive journals.
