Curriculum Update February 24-28

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It looks like that nice warm weather we were enjoying has disappeared for awhile.

This week, our 3rd grade international festival will be on Feb. 26th. The taste-fest will be at 1:45 and the program will be at 3:00 and 7:00 pm.

Next week, we will be celebrating Dr. Seuss. Here is the schedule:

Monday, March 3rd: Horton Hears a Who Day - Do nothing just be yourself and proud of who you are, regardless of differences, you can go far!

Tuesday, March 4th: The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins Day- Wear your favorite hat, but only wear one; it will be a whole lot of fun!

Wednesday, March 5th: Fox in Socks Day - Wacky Wednesday in silly socks; the sillier the better, but No Fox!

Thursday, March 6th: Red Fish Blue Fish Day - Wear red or blue. Red or blue is the name of the game and then we'll all look the same!

Friday, March 7th: The Cat in the Hat Day - The Cat and the Hat will be here to play so Cougars wear your red and white on Friday.

Welcome back for another week! It sure is nice to have warmer weather in the forecast. Please remember our third grade international festival is on Feb.26th.

We are focusing on what makes a good citizen this week. The students will answer the following questions:
What are the consequences of choosing to be an active member of your community?
Why do communities need laws/rules?
Who in your community decides what rules/laws are made and followed?
Can laws in your community be changed?
What makes someone a good citizen in your community?

We will reading, discussing and answering questions about the variety of aspects of citizenship.

We will also continue our Pay it Forward project where we work on displaying random kindness without receiving anything in return. The students are working on their published books for the military.
