Dawn Porter-Third Grade

I am delighted to continue teaching at Lake Harriet Lower Campus!   I spent my first 3 years  of teaching in Waukegan, IL, after graduating from Luther College with a BA degree in elementary education and Spanish.  For 22 years  I taught at Jefferson Community School in Minneapolis, first as a Spanish specialist and then for 17 years as a third grade teacher. In the fall of 2008 I moved to Lake Harriet.  My husband and I enjoy living in the  Linden Hills neighborhood.  Our daughter graduated from Southwest High School in 2012 and the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point in 2016.  Our son graduated from Southwest in 2015 and attends Luther College.

Alert: On Tuesday we will be having a Read In in our classroom. The students have been working hard toward some incentives to help them be their best.   Students may bring a soft item and books from home.  No snacks, please.

We are so excited for the Mill City fieldtrip on Friday. Make sure to dress for the weather as well as wearing walking shoes. For those that are bringing a lunch from home, make sure it is packed in a disposable bag. Also, we are hoping for one more volunteer chaperone for the fieldtrip. So if you would like to come with us, just email me. Thank you to the volunteers that are coming  on the fieldtrip.

This week’s Greek and Latin list is a review of the previous two weeks (Cede, Ceed, Cess and Vers, Vert). This week’s Spelling list is Scr, Str, and Spr.

Make sure you look out for a permission slip for our next field trip, the Ordway Theater. We will be attending the 2019 Flint Hills International Children’s Festival School Performance of Golden Dragon Acrobats. We will be watching traditional dance and ancient and contemporary theatrical techniques. This field trip will be on May 28th. If you would like to chaperone for this field trip, please email me.
