He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

May 26, 2012
Thank you to all the parents who accompanied the class to Field Day yesterday, we had a terrific time and the weather cooperated beautifully! The OSLS Third Graders defeated the LCS Third Graders 7-5 in the annual kickball game. Our students did very well in their events and showed true Christian competetive spirit and sportsmanship!
FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 29
- Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
END OF SCHOOL REMINDERS
As the school year draws to a close the children (and teachers) are filled with excitement. There is less pressure with state testing over and fun activities to look forward to. However, in my 26 years of teaching I have found that the last thing we need to do as parents and teachers is lessen our expectations. We will have a regular schedule with regular homework for the next three weeks. The same homework expectations will be in place. Children will still be assigned homework room if homework is not completed or if the reading log has not been filled out. If I lessen my expectations, the class will become unmanageable-and most importantly-THERE IS STILL PLENTY OF NEW INFORMATION to be learned.
Here are ways WE can make sure the last three weeks go smoothly:
- Check and sign planners each night, make sure all homework is done.
- Make sure students read and record in their reading logs their nightly reading.
- Review math facts each night and initial the sheet.
- Prepare for science and social studies test as the material is placed in folders.

So much sickness!
We have a plethora of illnesses invading our classrooms, right now the stomach bug and strep are the main culprits. So if your child is throwing up and/or complaining of a sore throat, you might want to watch them carefully and not send them to school if they are throwing up and/or have a fever.
In order to save your sanity, and hopefully mine, I will be posting homework assignments on my blog. This way, your child can complete the things they are able to complete at home. I can also attach the weekly spelling lists. I realize you may not have the math sheets, but hopefully this will help ease the load when they return to school. If I know early morning of your child’s absence, I may be able to gather their daily assignments.
Look for the assignments posted today and throughout the week. Students are still responsible for having them in their agendas.
HOMEWORK FOR MONDAY, MAY 7
Spelling-Write words in ABC order; sign Friday's spelling test

Field Trip Update
Thanks to Mrs. O'Connell, Mrs. Simon, Mrs. Young, Mr. Myhre and Mr. Zuelsdorf who have already signed up to be chaperones for the trip. We have enough chaperones. If any more parents wish to go, I will need the money by the May 1 deadline and I will have to make sure there is room on our boat.
May 2 Field Trip to Albany County Courthouse
Today a permission slip was sent home for this trip. We will leave at 8:55 Wednesday and return by 11:45 in time for lunch at school. I do need 3 or 4 parents willing to drive. Please let me know if you can help.
FIELD TRIP INFORMATION GOES HOME TODAY!!
The Albany Aqua Ducks & Trolleys, an amphibious tour and trolley tour company, operates in New York State's Capital Region and features historic tours of the Capital City of Albany.

APRIL 17, 2012
One small correction to the previous post. I've decided not to have a spelling unit this week. I want the students to be rested and relaxed. The only homework will be reading and math.
Our Bible Verse this week is one everyone already knows and we'll be referring to it often. There won't be any test on this verse.
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Phillipians 4:13
APRIL 13, 2012
As I sit here with the morning sun on my face leisurely enjoying my morning coffee I am so thankful for the week of rest spring break offered me. I hope you and your family members enjoyed the break from the school routine and are rested and energized for the final stretch.
This week begins two weeks of NY State Tests. The children are prepared and ready for the challenge. Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest, has a good breakfast, and that your morning is as stress free as possible. For those of you who bring your children to school, try and arrive by 8:20. Running late is very stressful and I want all the students to have a stress free start to the day.
Students will have reading, math, and spelling homework this week, but nothing more than that.
Tuesday, April 17-Day 1 ELA (7 reading passages, 36 multiple choice questions)
Wednesday, April 18-Day 2 ELA (1 listening selection with 5 multiple choice questions, 3 short response, and one extended response question) and (2 reading passages with 12 multiple choice questions)

Holy Week Begins and a BUSY Week in Third Grade
Homework DID go home on Friday. I sent this week's memory verse Hebrews 4:16 and the new spelling words home to be put in the planner. This week we will be wrapping up the third quarter so there are a few tests.
I will be sending home practice sheets this week, but there will not be much spelling homework other than to study for the test.
TUESDAY- SOCIAL STUDIES TEST
- SPELLING TEST
- MEMORY VERSE TEST
- SCIENCE TEST (A study guide will come home today, but students know this material very well already.)
Third Grade Easter Party!
Our Third Grade Class will be having an Easter Party on Thursday, April 5th from 1:30-3pm.
We will be having an in-class egg hunt, along with sweets and treats, craft and movie. Parents/siblings are invited to join us.
All students are being asked to bring in an empty (12) egg carton along with 1 dozen plastic eggs filled with wrapped, edible treats or small trinkets. Please label egg carton with students name. If you have extra egg cartons, candy and/or plastic eggs, please send them in as well. These are due by Thursday, April 5th.
To make this party possible we will need volunteers to send/bring in the following by Thursday, April 5th:
2 Dozen Easter Cookies (any kind)
2 Dozen Rice Krispie Treats
Carrots - Billy
4 (10 Count) boxes of Capri Sun Juices - Madison (2 boxes),
Easter Plates - Ashley
Easter Napkins - Ashley
3 Plastic Disposable Easter Table Cloths
ELA and MATH TEST PRACTICE PACKETS WILL COME HOME ON TUESDAY!
On Tuesday I will send home the spring break test practice booklets. There will not be a ton of work, but enough to spread it out and make sure that your child's skills stay sharp over the break. The BEST thing you can do is continue to promote reading and work on math facts. Students who complete the entire packet (checked and signed by an adult) will be given 1 to 3 homework passes to use toward the end of May and the month of June. I would encourage each family to spend some time on this since the ELA begins on April 17.
MARCH 20, 2012
SPRING (SUMMER?) HAS SPRUNG!
A Reminder about DRESS CODE...
With the warm weather here, just a reminder that shoulders should be covered and skirts, shorts, skorts, should be knee length. I imagine everyone is scrambling like we are to get some appropriate clothes for summer-I know Evan is at least two sizes bigger and certainly taller.
PICTURES TOMORROW-WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21
Ismile will be here tomorrow. We are scheduled for 11:20. I'll ask Mrs. Schlie to keep them as cool and coiffed as possible during PE.
NO SCHOOL FRIDAY
Spelling and Memory Verse tests will be on Thursday
MARCH 19, 2012
ALL POINTS BULLETIN FOR MISSING BOOKS!
Geronimo Stilton is a class favorite so I am sure some of these have made their way home unintentionally. Could you please look to see if any made their way to your home and return them to school? Thanks so much!
MARCH 15, 2012
We are busily preparing for fine arts today, gathering up all of our art projects and getting them ready to display for Sunday. Please come out Sunday from 2-4 and see what we've been up to. The third graders will be playing their recorders from 3:05 to 3:20 in the library. Please join us.
March 13, 2012
A WORD ABOUT BINDERS AND CLASS WORK
There were several comments regarding the amount of worksheets (or lack of) in the binders that went home yesterday. Most of our language arts work (other than the reading itself) has been done in the Common Core Workbooks that parents purchased before Christmas. These have stayed in the classroom. They will from time to time go home for an additional assignment.
Many arts and crafts activities coincided with Dr. Suess night and the upcoming Fine Arts Festival. Since there is not an art teacher on staff much of this was done during class time. Last week if you recall we had different activities throughout the week to celebrate Lutheran Schools Week so we were not on a regular schedule. As always, please let me know if you have questions.
PLEASE JOIN US SUNDAY FOR THE FINE ARTS FESTIVAL!
March 7, 2011
Happy Lutheran Schools Week!
We've been having a great time with our themed days and special activities. Today we had lunch and recess with our tribes. Tomorrow is the last day of our virtual missions trip to Paraguay. We have learned a lot about their culture and the people who live there. Tomorrow is pajama day and crazy hair day-remember we will go outside for recess so pajamas need to provide adequate warmth. Friday is "dress up" day meaning we will be wearing our nice church clothes, you may bring in extra clothes to change for recess.
Each night as a part of homework students are required to read and log in their reading. This is something that should be completed by the child (with your supervision.) Agendas should contain all homework assignments and your signature signals to me that you have seen and checked homework. Homework room is assigned to any student with incomplete or missing homework and students who have mistakes or corrections in their homework. Because we don't have individual study hall time, the homework room teacher will go over any problems with your child and make sure they understand the concept, then the student is able to go out for recess.

To my wonderful third grade families, please be in prayer for my husband Matt this Wednesday at 8:30. He suffers from atrial fibrillation (a-fib, or irregular heartbeat) and is currently out of normal sinus rhythm. He will undergo cardioversion at Saint Peters at that time. I will not be in school that day, but I will try and update the blog.
January 13, 2012
Clothing for Outside Play
Winter has certainly arrived! Please remember in order for your child to play outside they must have proper winter clothing, snow pants, a heavy coat, gloves, hat, and boots. The playground is very wet and very muddy and students can not play unless they are properly protected from the elements. Thanks so much!
We have been working diligently to label all problems in math class. Students are reminded constantly that all word problems and measurement questions need labels. Please check to see that your child is following through with this at home. For example 5 ants + 6 ants = 11 ants. When measuring they should include the unit of measurement, 12 ft., in., cm, or whatever the unit of measure is. Students with more than two or more problems incorrect on their homework will go to homework room long enough to make the corrections (or have it explained if they don’t understand) and then they will go outside.
There will be a Science Test (Chapter 6) next Friday, January 20 and a Social Studies test (Chapter 2) on Wednesday, January 25. Students will bring their books home this weekend and more detailed study guides will go home Tuesday. There will also be a quiz on what we have been studying in our Bible study on Thursday, January 26. You will receive that study guide next week as well.
There are only a few students who I need to reassess in reading, which should all be finished by Tuesday. Students have been doing some great writing recently and they have been using Kidspiration in computer lab. These pieces will come home soon in their writing portfolio. You will be impressed with their growth.
Vocabulary Homework and Assessment
Starting Tuesday, students will come home with a 3 page vocabulary packet. Five words with multiple meanings will be introduced at the beginning of the week and we will work on the packet in class and students may do some work at home. They will have a quiz on these words each Friday.
Enjoy the long weekend if you have Monday off! Scholastic Book Orders will be due on Friday, January 20.
January 5, 2012
Today was my first day back at Our Saviors! I am pleased to say that for the first time in a long time, I was pain free for most of the day! Praise God! I have missed the students so very much! Today we spent a great deal of time catching up and completing some writing assignments. Friday I will work on completing reading assessments for those students that I did not get to before the holiday. Look for spelling and memory work to start up again next week.
It is impossible to put into words how much your prayers, cards, notes, gifts, and gift cards meant to my family and me during my recovery time. It was so generous of you all. I hope you know how fortunate and blessed I feel to be a teacher here.
DECEMBER 17, 2011
Live from Saint Peter's Hospital
It's 5 AM and the one thing that you don't usually get in the hospital is rest, however, my nurse and tech were very gracious to me and actually allowed me to sleep this long. Praise God, the MRI showed evidence of fracture, but when they went in they were not there! This meant a less invasive procedure and a much better prognosis for quick healing and recovery. As I write this I am still on IV antibiotics because there is a drain in the incision area. In order for me to go home today, the draining needs to subside (risk of infection.)
I can't even describe to you how unbelievably wonderful it was to wake up in the recovery room with no sciatic pain-I don't even have the usual stiffness when I wake up in the morning. There is still pain in the incision area, but they are keeping me on pain meds for now. I pray that this area gets fully drained today so I can go home. I'll update you when I can. I am so very grateful for your prayers. Looks like God answered one of them very directly when there were no fractures!!!
DECEMBER 14, 2011
Words cannot express how much I appreciate your overwhelming generosity. The gift cards, presents, and kind words mean so much. I feel very loved by my OSLS family. Thanks to all of you.
My surgery is scheduled for 11AM. It should last about 2.5 hours. Hopefully I will be able to post an update in the evening. I already feel your prayers. Thanks again for the outpouring of love. My family and I certainly appreciate it.
DECEMBER 13, 2011
Don't miss the wonderful musical "A Star is Born" performed by Preschool-Fifth Grades this Friday night! Students are encouraged to wear Sunday clothes, but specifically no blue jeans or sneakers. Please be at school NO LATER THAN 6:45
DECEMBER 7, 2011
My sincerest apologies...
I inadvertently left the following names off the High Honor Roll list in the December newsletter. I sincerely apologize to these students and their families.
DECEMBER 1, 2011
Calling all crafters! We need a few supplies for craft projects. If you have old buttons, ric-rac, lace, sequins, etc., that you can spare we could certainly use them.
Thanks to all who attended conferences yesterday! They were very positive and productive.
Thanksgiving PIctures-In Progress!
December News-November 28, 2010
December News from Third Grade
A HUGE thank you to everyone who made our first Thanksgiving Feast a tremendous success! We had turkey, southern style cornbread dressing, gravy, carrots, pumpkin pie and apple pie. The students also made pilgrim hats out of fudge striped cookies and peanut butter cups. Everyone looked so festive in their pilgrim hats. Thank you to all the parents who donated supplies and a special thank you to Mrs. O’Connell, Mrs. Baldes, Mr. Myhre, Ms. Lanoue, Mr. Robinson, Mrs. Simon, Mrs. Young, Mr. and Mrs. Zuelsdorf, and Mrs. Rousselle. It truly was a memorable day, and would not have been possible without all your help.
We will be discussing Advent during Bible class as well as Christmas itself. We will also be continuing our study of the Holy Spirit. Memory Verses will be centered around this theme. We will continue with our independent reading and guided reading groups during the month. Science will center on weather and Social Studies will focus on some basic geography. We will also combine some literature and social studies as we discuss Christmas customs throughout the world through the use of literature.
As many of you know my last day of the calendar year will be December 14. I will be having back surgery on the 15th and would appreciate your prayers. As we enter December, our schedules and calendars are beginning to fill up quickly. Right now here are the plans for our Classroom Festivities. We will have our class Christmas celebration on Wednesday, December 14. We will also have a class pizza party on Wednesday, December 21. This is a half day (dismissal 11:45 AM.) and we will redeem our class pizza party prize won from having the most parents in attendance at the auction/banquet on November 19!! Way to go!
A GIVING CHALLENGE
Lastly, I want to encourage our students to give at this time of the year, and in lieu of exchanging gifts, I would like to encourage each student to make a donation to a needy family. It has come to my attention through my church that there is a single dad who is in need of our help this holiday. My husband and I have already agreed to sponsor him; his only wish was for a Target or Wal-Mart gift card. I was thinking this morning how wonderful it would be if the children pitched in to add to the gift. Our small class, singlehandedly could make this man and his child’s Christmas! So if you are interested there is one small catch-the gift is due back at my church on December 11. You can place an envelope in the homework folder. If I could have all donations by Friday, December 9, that would allow me sufficient time to gather the donations and get them to school.
December 14 – Mrs. Williams last day at school until January – Class Party 12:45 – 2:45
December 16 – School Musical
December 21 – Last Day of School (Pizza Party) 11:45 Dismissal
November 17, 2011
Thanksgiving Celebration!!! Information coming tonight!
Look for an email from Sara O'Connell about the festivities Wednesday. I apologize for the late notice, but with my back we were just able to get together and plan. Please respond to her ASAP so we can get the ball rolling.

Science Test Update
I am moving the Chapter 5 Science Test to next Tuesday, November 15. We need more time to review the material in class. Look for a study guide to go home Wednesday.
October 18, 2011
ATTENTION BLUE GROUP SPELLERS:
I know your word list does not match your sort. Do not worry about it and we will fix it in the morning. Thanks parents for understanding. You can just study the words that are on your list.
Goodbye to Hannah Lewis!
October 18, 2011
Hannah is leaving us today for a new school. We will miss your smiling face very much! We wish you all the best in your new school.
October 14, 2011
Binders containing checked and graded work will be ready to go home on Monday. I had hoped to have them together by today, but they will go home on Monday. Have a terrific weekend!!
SPELLING UPDATE! DUE TO THE SHORT WEEK THERE WILL BE NO SPELLING HOMEWORK OR TEST THIS WEEK. LAST WEEK'S TEST WILL COME HOME TODAY TO BE SIGNED. THANKS! MRS. WILLIAMS
News from Third Grade Mrs. Williams 10-11-11
Welcome to October!
We are finally done with the Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Testing! Last Wednesday I tested the final two students. This has been a lengthy process, but now I know the independent reading levels for all of the students in the class. This week you will receive a letter explaining the results and letting you know exactly where your child is relative to grade level. During class time I am requiring that students read their “just right” books. You are always welcome to read with them or to them at a higher level, but to maximize their learning they need to be reading at their level. I will test them again in January, and I fully expect there to be progress made. As always, if you have any questions, please let me know.
You received the second Book It form this week. I am requiring an extra 50 minutes a week on top of the 20 your child reads each night to qualify for the Book It! Incentive. The Book It! Sheet is due the following Monday.
Many of you have asked when we have certain activities:
Monday- PE 10:00
Tuesday- Music 9:30, PE 10:00, Library 2:00
Friday-Art 9:30, PE 10:00
I am keeping a portfolio of graded work for each child. I am using the binders that were brought in at the beginning of the year. These will go home this week for you to view. It is my hope that this can be a living document throughout the year, and be a great way to track progress. There will be a sheet in the front of the binder that you will sign indicating that you have seen the work. This will be a mixture of homework, classwork, quizzes, and tests. Please return the binder (with everything) and the signed sheet to school the next day.
Science and Social Studies
Since testing is over, we began Science and Social Studies work this past week. In science we are studying water and weather, and in social studies we are studying communities. There will be quizzes each week covering parts of the material. Students will be given exactly what they need to study to be prepared for each quiz.
We need Ziploc baggies-especially sandwich, quart, and gallon sized! Thanks to Mrs. Baldes and the Cub Scout troop nearly all the books in our classroom have been leveled and labeled. Now we need to package them in groups of 2, 4, and 6 for guided reading. The gallon sized bags will help keep these together for guide reading. We use the smaller bags for our spelling sorts and math manipulatives. So any type that you can donate would be appreciated.
Dates to Remember
October 14 Scholastic October Book Orders Due
October 14 Bible Quiz 1-God and His Word (study guide sent home Tuesday)
October 17 Water Cycle Quiz

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

I’m so thankful for all of you!
Music Classes Start Tomorrow, Tuesday, September 13!
Please bring recorders to school each and every Tuesday. Mrs. Neimann will be teaching our class how to play the recorder.
One addition to Supply List
September 7, 2011
For Bible memory work, each student is asked to bring a 3x5 spiral bound index card book. I will place a sticker with the memory verse in the notebook. That way, at the end of the year, you will have each verse in the booklet. I have seen them at Target and Staples.
Classroom Wish List
September 6, 2011
During recent home visits, I spoke to most of you about a Classroom Wish List, these are things I would purchase for the room if I had an unlimited personal budget. Most everything is inexpensive, so if you would like to help add to our classroom environment, just let me know what you would like to donate. I look forward to showing off the changes in the room tomorrow at OPEN HOUSE from 9-12. Below you will see the items on the wish list.
- primary colored bean bag chairs (WalMart has them online for under $20 with free shipping to store)
- 2 large 40 gallon plastic buckets with rope handles (these are for backpack storage)
- large bottles of hand sanitizer
- Clorox Wipes
- colorful kid related area rug (for rug time when reading stories)
If you are willing to donate,let me know.
September 6, 2011
