This week we are reading Prudy's Problem. It is a story about a girl with too many collections! Here are a few activities you can try this week as a family to go along with what we are doing in class:
1. This week spend time organizing one room in your home. Throw away or donate things taking up space in your home which you do not need. Talk about how it feels to have a home with less clutter.
We are also practicing drawing conclusions.
2. Look at pictures in magazines or books and use what you read and their facial expressions to draw conclusions about how they are feeling or what they are thinking.
In math I need students to complete practice pages 20 and 22 at home and return them to school on Friday. If those pages were already finished and turned in have your child come remind me.
Halloween is tomorrow and I hope you all have a fun night. However, no costumes are allowed at school tomorrow, or candy on the days following.
Our classroom is out of hand sanitizer and we could use some donations. We use this every day as the students head down to lunch, and I think it helps cut down on the spread of germs (at least a little). If most families could donate even one small bottle we would be set!
The October reading charts are due tomorrow. Students should have read about 20 minutes each day, so in total we need 400 minutes, or a little over 6 and a half hours to get a pizza coupon.
Lastly, our harvest festival is this Friday. Plan on coming from 6:00-8:00 and having a lot of fun! School appropriate costumes (no masks and not too scary) are welcome. If any parents can volunteer at our game station for about 30 minutes let me or Mrs. Tams know. I would like to be able to walk around and do a few things with my own little children if possible!

And finally, here is our homework sheet:
Hi! My name is Celinda Johnson, and I am very excited to join the 3rd grade team at Heritage Community Charter! I am thrilled to be your teacher, and I’m looking forward to a year of learning, fun, and adventures! My goal as a teacher is to instill a love of learning and exploration in all my students so they become life-long learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is so important to keep communication open and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need! I look forward to a great year together!
