Is it REALLY that time AGAIN? BACK TO SCHOOL 2014-2015

Welcome Back
Mrs. Benson’s Bunch

Summer has come to a screeching halt!
I love Summer but September is eminent.  This year will be an adventure with Mr.D and I.  We are back together as the dynamic DUO.   
We will be posting supply lists and other classroom requirements as well as our procedures and schedules as soon as we have all the kinks worked out.
Be prepared for the first day of school with a smile and hopefully a HUG! Some of you are brand new and some are past students who know us well and we hope you are excited for your FIFTH GRADE YEAR!
Keep looking for class lists and supply needs.

Looking forward to a GREAT SCHOOL YEAR!

Third Grade Zoo Trip is Tomorrow, June 11, 2014
Please be on time to school, we are leaving promptly at 9:30 am.  If you aren’t on time we will NOT wait for you.  Parents attending should come up to classrooms to get information about the trip and cell phone numbers. 
-Lunch (if you didn’t order it from the Zoo or CafĂ©.)
-Sneakers and Socks-no flip flops!!!! We are walking a lot!
-A backpack to carry lunches or items in
-Please bring a RAIN PONCHO because it looks like we could have a pop-up shower.
-Please make sure your 3rd grader brings their best
manners and behavior.
Thanks for all your support, money, and help all year! 
We are really looking forward to this trip.
Mrs. Benson and Mrs. DiGiorgio

Solar System Project!!!

Well Hello There!
     We are well on our way through 3rd grade and everyone knows in Third Grade we study the SOLAR SYSTEM!!!!WOOHOO!!!
I know some of you are cringing because you know what that means-PROJECT TIME :)  That is absolutely correct, but, we are working on the written part in school and I will be sending the "Art" part home to be completed with your families.  
The "Art" part will consist of;
     -A poster of your planet with facts from your report
     -A model of your planet-styrofoam, paper mache, or whatever you like
     -A brochure made on the computer or by hand-that invites people to come to your planet for vacation. (like a travel brochure) 
More Information to follow... Projects due April28th :)

Equivalent Fractions

Hey All!
Thank you for all the support and LOVE you have given me the past few weeks.  They were the hardest of my life.  The kiddos were great and behaved as well as they could considering they were missing me. (smiley face)
This week we are working on equivalent fractions. To help them here are some websites and they can always review the lessons on-

Please send in any 

Today we started our practice for the NJASK 3 Writing section! I can't wait to score them, our kiddos really LIKE to write.
As always Thank You for your respect and help everyday!

(write a note in your planner and have your parents sign it to let me know you played the games and I'll give you a COUPON!!!)
