Here’s what’s happening in 3rd ELA/SS this week:
Please look at the Student Planner on Monday and initial so that you will know what is coming up for the week. Assignments, homework, assessments and important dates are included on the Planner.
Spelling Discovery Words for Lesson 17 will be due on Wednesday. The Discovery Words are words that the student discovers throughout the week and add to their Spelling list. They need to have at least 10 words by Wednesday. The words must fit our spelling pattern for the week. Our Spelling Test will be on Thursday.
Last week the students learned to write an acrostic poem, this week we will be writing a Couplet (A two line poem with rhyming words at the end of the lines).
In Social Studies students will identify and compare the heroic deeds of Hector P. Garcia, James A. Lovell, Todd Beamer, Ellen Ochoa, and John “Danny’ Olivas.

Wednesday 2/14 is our Class Valentine Party from 2:45 - 3:30. This party is restricted to the students, the teacher, and the room mother as determined by school administration. The students will be preparing a Valentine Bag in class this week, so they do not need to bring a decorated box from home. Thank you to those of you who sent in your $5 to the room parent in charge of the party. We will continue to collect money until Wednesday, if you would like to contribute.
Thursday, 2/15 is Individual Spring and Class Picture Day - If you wish to purchase the group class picture, payment MUST be received by Picture Day. Order forms were sent home in the Wednesday Folder last Thursday. You may pay with cash or check or you may pay online at mylifetouch.com. If you pay online, please include your online payment code on the order form envelope. The spring individual portraits do NOT need to be purchased ahead of time.
Friday 2/16 and Monday 2/19 are Student Holiday! Enjoy the long weekend!
