*School Events 2017*


~ Grade 3 Class Mass: MONDAY 4/10/17


~ SCIENCE FAIR: Congratulations to all the winners!  Very impressed with all of your boards!  Great job, everyone!


~Transportation and Re-registration forms due now, please, if you have not already handed them in!!



~Third Grade will be participating in the Young Authors Project for 2017.  Some students have already started drafting their poems/stories at home.  The next two weeks, we will be spending class time to devote to the preparation of our stories/poems.  A figurative language/literary terms glossary will be sent home to help assist the students with their projects.  


*YA Rules:

- The suggested word count for Grade 3 is 150-300 words 
- All first drafts should be typed or neatly hand-written
- All first drafts should have a full heading AND a title for your poem or story
- First drafts are due by APRIL 15TH and handed into me who will then submit them to Mrs. Hanley
- Once your draft has been edited, you will receive instructions on how to submit your final draft
- Do not email your first drafts to Mrs. Hanley please.  
- All first drafts must be PAPER copies


*Speech Contest:

~The Third Grade will be participating in the Primary Speech Contest that will be held on APRIL 12TH.  Five students will be chosen from each class to compete on the stage that day.  

*TOPIC:

- My most embarrassing moment was . . . 

OR 

- If I were to write a book for my age group to read, what would it be about?


Speeches will be judged on:


- Originality 
- Content
- Volume/ Clarity
- Delivery 
- Memorization



~New Policy: to rectify the issue of missing work, starting in the third trimester there will be a new policy.  The policy will state: every 5 missed assignments will = a demerit.  I have informed the students that I am here in the morning prior to the start of school if extra help/time for missing work is needed.  Recess times are available with me a few times during the week as well.  This is in preparation for having more responsibility as a student and moving forward in the intermediate level.  PowerSchool questions about how to access grades or any other questions, please feel free to contact me.  Thank you.

*Script Tip*
Remember to slant when you practice your cursive writing.  If you write with your left hand, you slant your book to the right.  If you write with your right hand, you slant your book to the left.  It's important to go slow and be mindful of the direction in the curve of your letters when writing script.

  • The 4 Key Components of Legibility: the 4 "S" reminders

  •  

  • 1. Size - This refers to the letters in relation to each other and to the lines or spaces on the paper.

  • 2. Shape - There are four basic shapes, or motions, to guide your

  • cursive handwriting.

    • undercurve (this stroke swings up).
    • downcurve (this stroke dives down).
    • overcurve (this stroke bounces up).
    • slant (this stroke slides at an angle).
  • 3. Slant - All letters in cursive handwriting slant. 

    4. Spacing - The spacing between letters should all be the same.
