Welcome to the month of October. September just flew by. We have been working hard getting to know each other and developing 3rd grade work habits and adjusting to homework assignments.

We will begin Book Reporting this month. One will be an accelerated reader book that the children will be expected to read in class and then take a test to check their comprehension. The second one will be done at home after choosing one of my books. A letter will go home explaining the method of reporting. Current Events will also begin on Thursday, October 12th. We will alternate assignment weeks with the girls beginning first and the boys following on Thursday, October 19th. We will continue this presentation pattern in the weeks that follow.

Instead of going pumpkin picking our class will join with several other classes for our Third Annual Harvest Fest. A letter will be sent home when the date and cost is finalized.
