Game Day

Our Game Day will be Thursday, November 11, 11:50-12:30. Mrs. Davis will be sending notes home for you to let us know if you will provide a lunch for your child or a cafeteria lunch will be needed. I will not be at school on Thursday so I am sad to miss out on all the fun. I hope you each have a great time and enjoy just playing with your kids!

Spelling City

I hope you are using Spelling City to practice spelling words. It is a great way to practice and have fun at the same time. Each Sunday the list for the week is published. There have been a few reports of students not being able to find the current week's list so Spelling City has been contacted to see if there is a problem on their end. The list is NOT under my name. The 3rd grade teachers created a sight for the entire grade level so be sure to follow the steps below. I hope you have not experienced any problems but if you do in the future please contact me and I will see what I can do.
1) Click on "Find a list"
2) Search: Childress Elementary3rd (be careful with the spacing)
3) Click on the appropriate list

Have fun!

The New School Year is ALMOST Here!

Wow, in just a little over two short weeks we will be starting the 2010-2011 school year! This time of year brings about excitement, a few nervous moments, and lots of anticipation. I always love getting new students (even though it is heart-wrenching to see them leave in May). I wish for each of my students a year filled with challenges and fun!

I keep dates posted on the blog and little notes about what is going on in our classroom so be sure to come back from time to time and see what is knew!

Woo Hoo!!

TAKS scores came in and they are awesome! ALL of our class passed the reading and the math tests with flying colors.

In our class 12 students received Commended Performance in Reading. A student receiving this status could miss no more that TWO questions! WOW! And in math, seven students received Commended Performance. Three questions could be missed to receive this status in math.

We have had a great year so this was a perfect way to end it!

Just Laugh!

I have this poster hanging by the door of my classroom and then I found this quote today. I truly, truly hope this is how my students feel when they are in my classroom!

The Honduras Fund by Savannah

I went around classes picking up the money. How did I get classes to join to help and how did I do that? I wrote a letter to the classes saying please help our school raise money for the Honduras. All you have to do is ask people to help and because our school helped we now raised seven hundred seventeen hundred dollers and 81 cents. All together we raised $50,000 so now they are building a health care center for them, but we need more money than that. So please still be there and help us because there are children that are going to be born and they need medical care. Thank you for being there with us.

How I felt when I helped Honduras by Katelyn

When I helped Honduras it made feel good because they have to eat trash from the dump and they live in the dump. It also made me feel helpful because my class donated money for the Honduras.
Then we asked all the teachers in C.E.S. to help donate money so my class wrote letters to the teachers and some of them did and some of them didn't. So, we told them to try to donate money so the people in Honduras could eat good food. Then our classroom went to get the money from the classroom and the whole C.E.S. students came up with $717.81 now the Honduras can eat good food.
