News for School!

Hi Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your family! It's hard to believe snow is upon us...
Here are few tips as we brave the winter ahead:)

1. Please LABEL EVERYTHING! LLBean is very popular around here, and many kids have the same gear.
2. Send gloves/mittens, and possibly even an extra, dry pair!
3. We will go outside when the temperature is 10 degrees and above.
4. DRY SHOES to change into. Classroom routine to be aware of: Kids take their boots off, outside of the classroom, to keep our floor/rug dry and clean. Students will need an extra pair of shoes. Some kids will leave a pair of sneakers here, and wear the boots to/from home. This works well, as kids are then always prepared for PE, weather, etc. If your child prefers sneakers ("because it's too hard to play 4 square in boots!"), PLEASE send an extra pair of dry sneakers.

That's all for (s)now!

Our Week!

We had A LOT of FUN this week! At the ACTEM conference I attended last week, I learned how to create a BREAKOUT for 3rd graders! Today we did a puzzle called TEAMWORK. Basically, there's a box that the class is trying to unlock. In this challenge, there were 8 teams, each trying to open a different lock. In order to be successful, all teams had to figure out the answer to their own puzzle. With a combined effort ... WE BROKE OUT!!!!

Here are some "in the action" shots...
















Yesterday, we played Group Charades- to get ready to work well together today!

Here's our Golden Gate Bridge, and Eiffel Tower!

Hello Third Graders!
I am very excited to see you all soon! Take a peak at our weekly schedule, over on the right side of the blog. Our daily specials are there, too. :) My kids and I have spent a lot of time on the beach this summer. Drew is 5 years old and starting kindergarten this year at Mabel I. Wilson. Talia is a year and a half! Popham is our favorite beach! What have you been doing? Feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy the last few weeks of summer!
Sincerely,
Mrs. Wetmore
