After maps we put together our vocabulary dominoes going over the vocabulary words for the week. They do have a reading workbook page over these words so if they are finishing it up at home you might ask them to show you their family times page or their reading notebook. Both of those things are GREAT resources to use on that workbook page.
This afternoon we started a new story, "How to be a Perfect Person in Three Days". If your child asks for a piece of broccoli tonight, don't be alarmed they are simply trying to carry out step one of the perfect person plan.
Next, we worked on math and boy oh boy can elapsed time be TRICKY! Wow! The problems we worked today made us ALL think. At home anytime you can have your child read an analog clock for you I would appreciate the extra practice it would give them. It is pretty easy to rely on the digital way in this day and age, but trust me, at school we are practicing with an analog clock lots of times every day! We are even figuring how many hours we are here each day! Kinda tough but we are getting it!
Mr. Adams ended the day with an assembly about a chocolate bar fundraiser. Each kiddo was given a packet with all of the information to show you at home. If they participate in the fundraiser I do need the signed permission slip brought back to school. Once I have that I will send home their first box of chocolate to sell. Each chocolate bar sells for $1 and the money will be used for lots of things here at Eisenhower. Please look over the information with them! Mrs. Elder and I have talked and if the third graders sell MORE chocolate bars then any other grade here at Ike we will take them ALL to Braum's for some ice cream! Happy Selling!
