***I still have a large group of students who are forgetting their homework, bringing it in unsigned or incomplete. Please be aware that it is the student's responsibility to complete their homework in its entirety, including asking you to sign it, reading for eighty minutes per week, completing the math and writing, as well as the pumpkin project.
This week students have worked on bar graphs and pictographs, including developing questions based on them. Students have been instructed to pay special attention to the key in the pictograph, then identify what operation they should use when asked a question based on the bar graph or pictograph. During literacy instruction in EL students have learned to write an informational paragraph based on a country that they have studied. These countries include Finland, Thailand, and Zimbabwe. In social studies students are learning about the government including the three branches (legislative, executive, and judicial), the three levels of government (local, state, and federal), and important vocabulary such as citizen, checks and balances, and government. Finally, in science students are learning about the human body, specifically bones and muscles.
Please be mindful of other important information below including Scholastic book orders, Scholastic magazine payments, field trips and payments, homework, important dates, and additional paperwork. I look forward to another exciting week. Have a great weekend!

Field Trips Mordecai Historic Park-December 5 Morehead Planetarium-March 19
Any parents who want to volunteer for the field trips are welcome. Mordecai includes a tour on a trolley and some parents may not be able to fit on the trolley depending on amount of students, so they may have to stay back at the house while students take the tour. Please be sure and register through wcpss at LRES. If you are not registered every year, you can't be a chaperone. Parents travel separate from students and we usually arrive to destinations around 10:15-10:30. I will be sure and give any more details that I have closer to field trip dates.
Total Cost: $31-Please pay online through the L.E.S. Website (go through resources tab-->pay for field trips online-->find the third grade field trip and my name to pay.) ***You can also pay for the Scholastic Magazine here. Specials Schedule: Friday (10/19)-Day 3, Music
