Boys and Girls, we have been doing such a nice job working on our mini-laptops! We have really gotten familiar with Microsoft Word and our gaggle email’s as well. Feel free to click on the link below to practice typing, so that your ideas can be put to good use quicker! Let’s become TERRIFIC Typist’!
Boys and girls, we just came back from a long vacation and during that vacation we celebrated New Year’s! Happy, Happy New Year to you, and your family and friend’s!!! May this year be filled with only good things for you all!
New Year’s Eve (December 31st) and New Year’s Day (January 1) are important days because we celebrate the start of a New Year–2012! New Year’s has always been a time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It’s a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes. Do you have a New Year’s resolution, to make yourself a better you this year? If so, what is it and how will you follow through on it?
Wow! Another successful Skype session with other students experiencing the same grade range of education, but in a different State. We learned a lot about our “Skyping Buddies” in Florida. We hope they learned a lot about us as well. This post is for both classes. The one in Florida and ours. Boys and girls, please take a moment to answer a few questions. Feel free to comment on anything else you think may feel is important to mention. Questions:
1 – What was one thing that you found similar between our schools/states?
2 – What was one difference that was mentioned about our schools and/or lifestyles that you found interesting?
3 – How did you feel about skyping with another school in another state?
Hello Boys and Girls,

Third grade is a demanding one with many new challenges to be met. If you have any questions during the school year, please feel free to write a note and we will reply as soon as possible.
Please review and sign homework every night, as homework will be given daily.
Check your child’s Homework Folder for important information and notices.
Make sure your child comes to school with sharpened pencils every day.
All notices requiring information and/or signatures must be returned in child’s Homework Folder the next morning.
Missing homework must be made up the following day.
Third grade eats lunch at 10:35, so there will be a snack time. Please send in a snack each day with your child.
Gym is on Wednesdays, so make sure your child is dressed appropriately.
Please let us know of any pertinent information about your child that you believe we should be aware of including food allergies. We both feel that with hard work and cooperation, this school year will be rewarding for all. We hope that you are ready for an adventure in learning!
Miss Barbaro and Mrs. Bova
Boys and Girls,
We had such a great time at The New York Aquarium on Thursday, and we could tell that you all did too! We enjoyed meeting the sea lions Duke and Osbourn and watching the show they put on in the Aquatheater. The third grade looked at many sea creatures such as: The Pacific Walrus, The Black-footed Penguin, The California Sea Lion, otters and seals. We also learned many new things throughout visiting specific sights as well. Tell us: What was your favorite part of the aquarium trip? What did you learn about sea life that you never knew before? The teachers learned a very interesting fact, a male seahorse carries the baby rather than the female seahorse!
We really enjoyed reading “The Have A Good Day Café” by Frances Park. We saw how Mike’s family runs a food cart on a busy corner near a city park. Despite the family’s Korean/American heritage, the food they sell is popular American fare including hot dogs, pizza, and bagels. When Grandma comes to live with the family, she is lonely and homesick for Korea. At the same time, the family business slows down because two other food carts park on the same street. Then Mike comes up with an idea: he and Grandma will cook Korean dishes to sell from the cart. Mike also makes a sign renaming the cart The Have a Good Day Cafe, because that is what his parents always say to customers after they make a purchase. In no time, business improves as customers line up to try the delicious smelling food. More importantly, Grandma begins to feel at home as she makes an important contribution to the family’s life.
Tell us: how do you help out at home? Which people in your family do you help the most?
