I'm excited to start another great school year and look forward to seeing many of you at Open House on Thursday, August
We are in need of parent volunteers for our May 1st field trip to the UNC botanical gardens. If you are able to chaperone please let me know ASAP. Please check that your school background check is up to date for this year. If you have not completed this form in the past two years there is a link below. This must be done for all chaperones prior to our trip. Thank you for all your help this year!
Today in class we tasted several Egyptian foods including dried apricots, dried figs, humus, and fig cakes. Attached is the recipe for fig cakes if you would like to make them at home.
Please be sure to check out the "Themes" page. It has been updated with many interesting sites all about Ancient Egypt!
I hope all families have a wonderful Thanksgiving break. Our class spelling bee will be the week we come back to school so remember to study, study, study!
Don't forget to come join us from 2:50-3:20 in the cafeteria for the Third Grade Medieval Festival! Our festival displays will also be set up in our classrooms this evening during Science Share and the Book Fair. Our classes are excited to teach you about what we learned about castle construction, interior rooms in a castle, weapons that use force and motion and heraldry. We hope you are as excited as we are for today's event!
Since there was no school on Monday and I was out yesterday the homework for this week will be due on Monday.
Today in class we learned the true meanings behind some nursery rhymes. Each of the nursery rhymes are based on people, events and places in the middle ages. The students asked me to share this so they (and you!) could read them. We hope you enjoy but try not to be too scared! Nursery Rhyme Meanings
Check back often to find out what we are learning, important dates and events at school!
