3's Corner

Additional Information

My past experiences have found that the threes are not ready to discuss any of the historical aspects of the Thanksgiving holiday. Instead we will focus on people who care for us and why we are thankful – an equally difficult concept! On the 17th we will make corn muffins and butter. Ann will contact the parent helpers to let them know what to bring for snack.


We are trying a new nature program this year. Naturalist from Watkins Park will come on Thursday, November 10th for a 45 minute presentation. The program will be at 10:30. Parents and siblings are invited to come.


Written evaluations for the threes will be sent home the second week of November. Conferences will be held during the afternoon and evening Nov. 15th and 16th. If you would like to have an oral conference, a sign-up sheet will be on the front bulletin board beginning the second week of November. Each conference is 15 minutes long, please come without your children. Although this may be inconvenient, it can be difficult to discuss your child if they are present.


Now that Touch and Tell has begun, your child may bring in an item to share on their assigned day. Check the list on the front bulletin board if you are unsure of your child’s day. It often takes the threes awhile to become interested in this activity. Don’t be concerned if they don’t want to bring in anything to show on a regular basis.


 Again, please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns
