Michele Koselke

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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. Mikey, Isabella, Aaliyah, Idan, Gabriel, Kiera, Isabela, Juliette, and Sophia are on track to make their goal!​ Michael D., Mason, Longxin, Xavier, and Aiden have already made their goal!​

Students with the most Dojo points this week were: Isabela, Longxin, Alison, Max, and ​Matthew​. 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.
