Checking in on 3/17/20

Tuesday, March 17th

Hello everyone!
I hope you are all staying healthy. I miss you all! I sent a folder of papers home with my language arts and math students on our last day of class. I am waiting to hear from Dr. Hollister and Mrs. Andersen that we are allowed to start working on those things together. In the mean time, you can keep learning alive at your house.

Language Arts: You can keep reading your book packet books or other books for fun. You can write stories and post them on Seesaw for others to comment on.

Math: You can keep practicing flashcards, go on Prodigy and ST Math, or practice skills on IXL.

Everyone: You can start a Genius Hour project at your house where you explore and learn about a topic you are interested in.

Remember, you can email me anytime you want with questions or just to say hello.

Take care,
Mrs. Muhr

Because Breckock Cares Club- rainbow appreciations

Last Thursday was another club day at Brecknock. Students excitedly hurried to their club location for the last 40 minutes of the day to have fun exploring a passion of theirs.  Miss Erb planned an activity for our “Because Brecknock Cares Club” students to do something kind for some of the adults in our building.  The students worked in pairs to create a rainbow of character traits that they appreciate in each adult. The cloud said “You are our rainbow on a cloudy day. Thank you for always being….”  Rainbows were made for the nurses, secretaries, principal, cafeteria cooks, recess monitors, counselor, custodian and specials teachers. Ask your third grader to fill you in on their club activity today.



Genius Hour- February presentations

We have continued our Genius Hour projects this month. Students are so motivated and excited to research a topic of their choice and prepare a project to present their learning.  This month four students from our class presented their projects. We’ll keep working on our research and will have more projects to present next month.

Kiara shared how earthquakes form.

Delia introduced us to Marshmello (a DJ).

Trey shared information about go-karting.

Micah made a book to show us how he learned to draw astronauts and aliens.


Fractions on a Number Line

Miss Erb is wrapping up our unit on fractions. Last week learners worked in groups to create number lines that were divided evenly and plot fractions on them. Afterwards they walked around to document what they saw on each other’s fraction number lines.




February STAR Party

On Friday, 2/28 we celebrated excellent student behavior with our monthly Star party. Each day our Students are Taking Academic Responsibility by making good choices at school. They start the day with 4 stars and try to keep them all day or even earn an extra star for excellent behavior. Teachers kept track of student scores all month and averaged them to see who was invited to celebrate good behavior at our S.T.A.R. Party. Any student that averaged 3.5  stars or higher was invited to a dance party! We got our groove on to some popular dances such as YMCA, Ghangham Style, Whip Whip Nae Nae, and the YMCA.  Students who averaged 4 stars or higher were “Rock Stars” and received 2 glow in the dark bracelets to wear during the dance party.  Now we’ll begin working on making good behavior choices for March.



Read Across America Week

Next week we will celebrate Read Across America Week with some fun school-wide spirit days.

Monday 3/2= Wear your favorite color.

Tuesday 3/3= Wear your favorite hat.

Wacky Wednesday 3/4= Dress as a wacky animal.

Thursday 3/5= Dress like your favorite Dr. Seuss character.

Friday 3/6= Wear striped clothing.


Dental Lesson

On Friday, Dr. Berstecher from New Holland visited our third grade.  Each language arts class met with him to hear about how to keep our teeth healthy.  We learned we have 4 types of teeth, which foods help us keep our teeth health, which foods can cause tooth decay, and how to keep teeth clean. He had a lot of student helpers and gave us goody bags to take home.


Because Brecknock Cares Club- “new students”

Today was another club day at Brecknock. Students excitedly hurried to their club location for the last 40 minutes of the day to have fun exploring a passion of theirs.  My “Because Brecknock Cares Club” students wanted to do something kind for new students who register to attend Brecknock during the school year.  We created Starburst welcome bags for them that we hope they’ll love.  Mrs. Trofe will distribute them on the students’ first day.  Ask your third grader to fill you in on their club activity today.



Valentine’s Day

Today we celebrated Valentine’s Day at school.  Students passed out valentines and enjoyed some treats.
