Mrs. Noelker’s Third Grade News

The third graders have had a great start to the school year. We’ve been working hard to learn the new rules and procedures of our classroom and school.  

This year I have decided to try something new with our Chromebooks, Class Dojo. Class Dojo is a technology piece that we will be using daily in our classroom.  It is a great way to encourage students for any skill or value, whether it’s working hard, being kind, or helping others. Students can showcase and share their learning by adding photos and videos to their portfolios. Parents can get more involved with life at school by signing up on any device to receive student updates and view their child’s work.  

    During reading we have spent a lot of time getting to know each other as readers. We have enjoyed a few read alouds that have taught us the importance of not interrupting, solving our kid size problems on our own, and being kind to one another. We are also learning how to become strong readers by reading every night and talking and thinking about our books with our peers.  

    As writers we have been exploring all of our new writing materials. The students have been practicing what it should look and sound like during writers' workshop. They have received new writing notebooks and have spent some time personalizing them. They're excited to start working on their masterpieces!    

         In the upcoming weeks we will start to showcase some of our hard work in the hallways. Feel free to stop by and check it out. We are looking forward to what the rest of the school year has to offer!
