What a great school fun run we had last Thursday! I am amazed at how well these 3rd graders did running distances of over two miles in the hour we had on the track. Thank you for all of your support with this fun run! On Friday, January 24th, 2nd and 3rd graders will celebrate reaching an Apex goal with a crazy hair and crazy sock day.
Thank you, Ms. Rizzie and Ms. Nancett, for the wonderful lesson on Japanese art last Friday. The students enjoyed this lesson and focusing on contrasting aspects of Japanese paintings, such as inside/outside, light/dark, and movement/stillness. These types of activities help us to be more attentive when studying art. Thank you!
In class we have discussed the importance of taking the time at home to practice and memorize multiplication facts. Knowing these facts by heart will make problem-solving steps so much easier as we move forward in math. An extra ten minutes of homework practice (flashcards, computer games, or even writing them out the old-fashioned way) can make a big difference. Thank you for helping your child in this area.
This week we will continue with our class read aloud, a biography of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and his voice in the civil rights movement.
Have a fantastic week!
