Our work has finally paid off...Our book of Autumnal Poetry arrived and we are getting ready to share with other grades.  Hope you are enjoying your daughters' works!


Our work required cooperation and patience.
Learning about Ruby Bridges, Rosa Parks, and MLK JR.

Learning about Civic Leadership and how collaboration helped to bring about positive change within a community, brought us to this collage.  Children and adults of all races... living, working, and learning together!   Connecting this to the" Little Virtues"... that's what it's all about!

I expect our BOOK to arrive in about 2 weeks. A nice Christmas surprise!

VA3rd Grade


"We hold so much potential within us!"

      As we welcomed FALL on September 22 we held a discussion circle about what Autumn would mean for us as 3rd Graders. 
     We have already celebrated many " firsts" in your daughters' lives! 
First day as 3rd Graders
First Day of Autumn
First time using a new coat room
First practice day for Terranovas 
First experience as CHOIR members. 
     We are now  ready for this month  which brings Columbus Day and The Teranova Tests. We have been preparing for this time since the first day of school. The girls are ready and relaxed. The next best thing for them is to have a good night's sleep each night, a good breakfast, and to arrive on time at school. 
      You have already seen the amount of work we have been covering each day and the tremendous focus they have shown. 
     They did a great job during our practice and I will do my best to keep them relaxed and not stressed as we complete our tasks for each day. 
     I will keep you updated as we progress.   
     In between our specialized work, the girls have been busy choosing independent reading and are completing their last writing piece.... One Small Moment in Time.   This has required them to take a big picture about their choice of topic and use a " fine tooth comb" to find just ONE special part to write about.  They have worked on drafts and edited many times. The final drafts are being finished and will be on our front bulletin board. They have chosen wonderful moments!  Pics to follow.
