Friday News - Jan. 26

Happy No School Friday! :) 

Monday we will start a fresh new 3rd quarter! 

In Math we finished up Chapter 8: Applying Multiplication and Division. In our next chapter we will learn about properties and equations

In Reading we talked about why authors write....AUTHORS' PURPOSE. We talked about PIE -- 3 big reasons why authors write. To Persuade, Inform, Entertain.   


When I was back in the States over Christmas break I was blessed to see my grandparents and spend time with them. Both my grandpas love to work with wood and create things -- so they sent me back to Okinawa with a little gift to my students. Yesterday, I gave each student a small wooden car that my grandpas made. My grandpas make hundreds of these cars every year and they send them all over the world to children in need (poor children, orphanages, etc.). 
My grandpas would be overjoyed to know that each one of my 3rd graders have one of their wooden cars.

A look at next week....
