To celebrate being a unique individual we read Chester's Way. The students were inspired by how the characters in the story learned from each others' differences. We also discussed having different opinions and how to politely disagree.
Our first homework assignment went home and I was very pleased with what was turned in. I saw a tremendous amount of effort!!! 22 out of 25 Superstars are still in the homework club for the month of September! YAY!
The first spelling test of the year was given. The class average was a 13 out of 15! (There are actually 20 words, but 5 are bonus words, so I score it out of 15). Great job third graders!! Let's try for an average of 14 next week!
