Welcome Back to School!

Getting To Know One Another
We have been working hard to create a positive and friendly classroom environment through various team-building activities. Ask your student about the following activities! Student Scavenger Hunt Human Knot Classroom Friends BINGO Smartie Game Musical Get-To-Know-You Cha-Cha-Slide

Welcome back to school Trailblazers and parents! We have a wonderful 3rd grade class in room 244! Everyone is excited for the school year to start and the energy in our room is amazing! Our class newsletter will keep you posted on upcoming events in our classroom and will also highlight some of the fun things we have done in the past week. Enjoy our Week In Review!

Getting To Know Our Classroom
We have also been learning the “ins” and “outs” of the classroom. Ask your child… What is a high five? How can you earn one? Where do you hand in your homework? What is the bathroom pass? Who is VIP? What is the Marble Jar? What does listening to music have to do with lunch?

Reading Together
We have also been enjoying a variety of books this week that have sparked great conversation in the classroom. Ask your child about the books we have read using the questions below. First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg Booger Love by Brod Bagert (poem) Who had the jitters in this story? Why do you think this poem has a warning label? What feelings did you have the first day of school? Swimmy by Leo Lonnie. A Fine, Fine School by Sharon Creech Why do fish swim in schools? What was the principal doing in the story that worried the children and parents? Mrs. Spritzer’s Garden by Edith Pattou What did Mrs. Spritzer grow? What did the seeds represent?

My Thoughts. . .
My first week at school was __________________________________. Something we did this week that I enjoyed was ____________________. Some friends that I have in my class are; _________________________ _______________________________________________________. I am excited to learn about _________________________ this year.

We are building a classroom community using the “Fish Philosophy”. The Fish Philosophy focuses on four principals; Play, Choose Your Attitude, Be There, Make Their Day. We will explore these four principals in the upcoming weeks and continue to build our relationships throughout the school year. This week we discussed why fish swim in school and why we “swim” in schools and we have also worked towards creating our Mission Statement.

Let’s Communicate!
