Reminders for this week!

Book talks are due tomorrow! Please make sure your child has done the following:

  • Read the entire book that they had chosen
  • Completed the note sheet that will help to present the book
  • Created a visual to go along with the book talk. This can be of your third graders choosing, but some ideas were given on the assignment sheet. This is just something to show that goes along with the book.

It would be a good idea to talk with your third grader about 2-3 parts of the book that they would like to share with the class as well as if they would recommend the book or not. We will briefly talk about a few of these things in class as well.

Thanks for your support in celebrating your child as a reader!!  🙂

The Talent Show is on Thursday! Please check the school blog for more information. Please let me know if your child will be staying for the rehearsal on Wednesday.

I hope you all have a wonderful spring break!!! Enjoy time with family and friends and take some time to have fun and relax too!  We’d love to hear what you are doing over break!
