We've made it to the time of year once again when it's easy to get distracted. Our clocks have sprung forward, the sun is teasing us with longer days, and all the while we're one hour less rested. The excitement of spring is almost enough to make a third grader throw in the work towel in exchange for a beach towel. Almost

As we begin the final quarter of third grade, I'm asking that everyone stay in the game! Don’t let “summeritis” make you lose focus. You’ve spent nearly seven months studying heat and light, the moon, interactions between living and nonliving things, and the structure of American government. You used the power of the sun to cook s’mores, learned how to read a map, formed a complicated food web, and even fed a banana to a zip-lock bag full of decomposers. If you ask me, we’ve had fun. Of course, this only scratches the surface of the knowledge you’ve gained since August.

Luckily, it’s not over yet! We’ve saved some of the most exciting activities and units for last. Between now and June, you’ll learn about the ancient Inca Empire, compare American culture with others around the world, and (my favorite) learn how skateboarding relates to Isaac Newton’s laws of motion.

I encourage everyone to reflect on what you’ve liked about the year, and what could have gone better. Make goals for how you would like to improve. Think about what you want to accomplish. For example:

  • Memorize your multiplication and division facts.
  • Earn your cursive license.
  • Become a master essay writer.
  • Improve your typing speed.

It’s been a great year, but remember we still have ¼ of it left. Persevere, keep a positive attitude and a growth mindset, and make yourself proud!

PLAY BALL!
