Happy New Year 3rd Grade! 

We are so happy to be back with one another! We hope you enjoyed your time with family and friends over winter break. These 3rd graders had a nice transition back. We enjoyed hearing all about their adventures over break. In math, students started an individual challenge. Each set of multiplication facts they master earns them a new belt for their ninja! Ask your kiddo how many belts their ninja has now! In phonics, we reviewed affixes. That is: prefixes, suffixes, and base words! Students participated in a word building exercise. They were able to see how many words/sentences they could build with these affixes! During our deep dive time, students soared as they learned about the Wright Brothers’ contributions to the development of flight. We even learned how to invent our own paper airplanes and put them to the test!

Lastly, Miss Alissa, our student teacher, is here with us all 5 days! The kiddos couldn’t be more excited! Welcome back Miss Alissa! 

Please tag us both when sending emails and/or Talking Points if you have any questions or concerns this school year: hwilliams@wcdsedu.com  & pbuck@wcdsedu.com 

Have a snowy weekend!
