It was wonderful having the opprotunity to speak with all of the parents last week during conferences. We truly do have a great group of students and parents this year! I am excited to see how much the students progress during third grade!

Mrs.Ryan reads a book every day after lunch. The book that Mrs.Ryan is reading is called The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. So far it's about a bunny that loses his owner and goes on an adventure to go back to her but a man finds him and they do terrible stuff to him. Also, the other thing we are doing every day is reading silently after lunch. I really engoy reading, so I am so happy to have reading as one of our things.

RTI & Science

We have started RTI and we are reading the story called The Waterfall. We are also making nametags. RTI is Monday,Tusday,Thursday,and Friday. We go there every time after our recess.
We are doing science and so far in the back of our room we are growing a plant called the Wisconsin Fast Plant and they are growing very well. After a couple days we check them and then we take them out of their sheet and we get buddied up with a partner and we have a science book and we look at our plant and we write about it. We draw a picture of it and then we talk about the plant. Science is lots of fun but we don't only do stuff about plants we also do math in science and that is why science is the best in any school you could think of.

Oops!! :-(

I have to start off by apologizing. I am truly sorry. I somehow misplaced the conference schedule from Back to School Night. I have sent home a blank schedule with the students today. Please write down your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice for a conference time. I will do my best to accomodate everyone. If your first choice is the time that you had chosen at back to school night, please put a star next to your child's name in the box so that I can make sure to allow you to keep your conference at that time. If there are any questions, please feel free to send me an email. I will send home a conference slip with your scheduled time tomorrow. Thank you for your understanding.
