Third grade is collecting pennies or change from our pockets for His Glory Orphange in Haiti.  Will you please help us by sending in pennies (or change) so that we can send lots of money to help the children in Haiti. Third grade is in a contest to raise the most money for the orphange.  We are competing against second and fourth grade.  If we win, we get an extra recess.  PLEASE HELP!! We want the extra recess but we really want to help the children in Haiti to be safe.

Non-Fiction Stories

We have been reading non-fiction stories this week.  That is stories that are real.  Last week we read about the Titanic.  It was really interesting!  We learned that the Titanic was called the "Rich Man's Special."  It sank in 1912.  After the Titanic hit the iceberg five of the watertight compartments flooded.  If only four would have flooded then the ship would not have sank.  There were 2,227 passengers and only 705 were rescued by the ship Carpathia.  It was really sad.    About 73 years later a scientist by the name of Robert Ballard found the Titanic again.

This week we read a story called Patrick and the Great Molasses Explosion.  In 1919 in the city of Boston the Purity Distilling Company's huge tank that held molasses exploded.  People and horses were covered with molasses.  The city was a sticky mess.  When Patrick went home his mom didn't believe his story until his dad came home covered in molasses too!
