​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Hi!  Welcome to Mrs. Koselke's Third Grade Class!​​

​      I'm so excited to be working with this class! We plan on having a fun year! Please check the planner each night, sign, and make sure your child has completed the homework. Please send a message through Dojo, email, or write on the page that your child had difficulty so I can go over the lesson with them.
    Students have been excited to trade their chair for a yoga ball if they are highest points earners on Dojo!
     AR-​Your child should read every night. They will have a semester goal to achieve, while working on their yearly goal of 100 points! 
I have given each student their reading range and their AR goal. They are given a minimum of 20 minutes in school. There will be an AR party at the end of each quarter to celebrate those that have made their goal. Students on track to make their goal are: Matthew, Idan, Aiden, Xavier, Isabela, Alison, and Longxin.

Students with the most Dojo points this week were: Isabela (Tuesday & Wednesday), and Xavier. The next day they can trade their chair for a yoga ball to bounce through the day! On Fridays, they are the only ones to use the reading lounge.

We will be reading a nonfiction story called "Rocks in His Head." The students can find it on youtube to reread and listen to the story. The test that goes with this week's selection is very difficult. Instead, we will take the Weekly Test which will be a fresh story for them to read and answer the questions. There will be no study guide this week. We will note facts and opinions in the story. We will work on possessive pronouns. We will spell words with prefixes pre-, mid-, over-, out-, bi-, and de-.

In addition, we will learn about the 7 Habits for Classroom Community.  They are:

1.  Responsibility (We choose our actions)

We want to respect each other, not hurt each other. We will use kind words. We will work quietly and take turns!
