Mr Ebys Grade 3 Room

Mr Eby's Grade 3 Class 

I love Christmas! It can be crazy, but I hope everyone gets a chance to enjoy having some hot chocolate and reading with their little ones this break. I know I will. As we approach the break, there is a lot going on. We will be having a class Christmas party on the 21st. I am hoping we all have some fun. Christmas concert if December 18 at 9:30am. Our class has something I am very proud of prepared. 
Remember as the weather gets difficult that is always best to ere on the side of caution. Too many students are coming in soaked without snow pants or without winter coats. If you do not have any, and are unable to get a pair, discreetly let me know and I may be able to get some for them (many teachers have kids and we like to pass on the things they grow out of).
Our class has been visited by a special guest who will keep coming back for the next few weeks. We have been learning about pets and empathy and are hoping to visit the humane society next month. Karen will be joining us every Tuesday to help, she works for the local Humane Society and used to be a high school teacher.
We are doing the 12 days of Christmas challenge again this year. Please look for the list in your child' s agenda. I have attached it to the bottom of this page as well.
Scholastic orders are due on the 10th. Sorry about the quick turn around time, but I want to make sure we get them back before the break.
I will not be sending home reading folders the last week before the break. I will be using the break to do some needed organization and programming. Please take a peek around the house for library books and readers that need to come back. Nobody wants to end up on Santa's naughty list over an overdue library book this close to Christmas:)
