C-3 News 4-26-19

Dear C-3 Families,
Happy Friday!  Great news - All of our field trip collections have been completed for the year, so we will not be sending home any more permission slips or asking for any more field trip donations (Always one of my very least favorite duties as a teacher). ๐Ÿ˜  Thank you for all of your support in making these hands-on experiences possible for our students. 
Our field trip to the Alviso Adobe Park is next Tuesday.  The students will be applying their knowledge and expanding their leaning about the Ohlone people, this land during the Ohlone and Rancho periods, and fossils.  It is a very enriching trip! 

Friday Folder - Please do not miss your child's great work in their Friday Folder.  This week, they are bringing home a few amazing pieces of hard work that we simply did not have space in our classroom to display during Open House.  Specifically, I'd  like to point out the Plant Adaptation books.  They put a lot of research and work into those, and I think it shows. :)

Next Thursday, all third grade teachers will be at a meeting.  We will have a substitute in the classroom.  I will be checking my email throughout the day, so please send a message if you need anything.
Students will be starting an incredibly enriching and impressive algebra program next week.  If you can't tell, I get very excited about introducing this to my students each year.  Ask your child about it next week.  It's really beneficial for them to teach others what they have been learning in class. 
I hope everyone has a great weekend!  Enjoy the sunshine!
