The goal for third grade for November is to have 80% positive behavior in Class Dojo for every week in November. The incentive is Game Day which will take place in December!!
Today, we started talking about fixed mindset vs. growth mindset. This year, we are going to work really hard to develop a growth mindset. We watched this video about “The Power of Yet.” We also made a project for the hallway. Take a look at both! Your child should have brought home some information on this today.
Welcome to third grade! I am very excited to be teaching third grade this year. Some of you may know me as Ms. Short, but I was recently married and have changed my name to Mrs. Goy.
