Tonight's homework:

- Read for 20 minutes (or more!)
- Reading log (due tomorrow)
- Math:  Probability HW (due tomorrow)

- Poetry: Read Robert Frost poem (questions due next Friday)
- Science: Record moon phase each day this month*
     *Sometimes, if it's cloudy or hard to find in the evening, the moon is visible in the morning before school.  There are also websites (like the one linked above) that will show the moon's current phase.  Once we establish a pattern, it will be much easier to "guess" the phase of a given day.

We are learning about the different phases of the Earth's moon.

Also, please know that tomorrow is "Jump Rope for Heart" day!   Jump Rope for Heart is an annual fundraiser led by the P.E. teachers at BES.  Proceeds go to the American Heart Association.  From the event's website:

"Through Jump Rope For Heart kids learn jump rope skills, how their heart works and raise money to help kids with special hearts.  Have fun, learn how to stay healthy and make a difference in the lives of others!"

The 3rd grade will be jumping during their normally scheduled P.E./specials time (11:20am-12:20pm).

Have fun!

- Mr. B
