Dear Families, I had a great time talking with all of you last night! Thank you for such an astounding turnout! I hope you left with your brain tickled and curious to know more. To help you in your quest to know more I have added a parent resource section to our blog. If you look on the right hand side of this blog there is a list of parent resources. Please click on them to see the BTSN powerpoint presentation as well as the other important information. I will continually add articles of interest and other important information for you there. Hopefully that way you can keep track of it and reference it when you would like.
Highlight of the Week
Today the three 3rd Grades had a friendship mixer. We divided the three classrooms up to have an opportunity to connect with old friends, make new friends, and to help the teachers get to know the children better. In each room we explored what it means to collaborate and found ways to connect our ideas together.
In Mrs. Hunger's room they made animal habitats with paper and cardboard. In Mrs. Kimmy's room they played collaborative games, and in my room we explored how to have a no talking conversation on paper with various types of watercolors and chalk. Your child will get to have time in each room over the next 3 weeks. This focus on collaboration is a structure we are putting in place to create a working relationship amongst the 3 classes as we eventually collaborate to write our own 3rd Grade musical later this year. Enjoy the teamwork images!
