Hello everyone! I trust that by now all of you have received and read the "new" homework policy for grade 3. Homework Planners are still being used, and hopefully all students now are comfortable enough to copy down all their work onto the planners. This week we will be celebrating America's favorite doctor...Dr. Seuss. We have several activities that celebrate his stories and wonderful rhyming ability. The students all love him, his Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, The Grinch, Yertle the Turtle, Green Eggs and Ham and so many more!!
