*If you choose to bring in a birthday snack for the class please try your best to have the Nutritional Facts attached to it OR bring the recipe that was used due to health concerns with some students. WE ARE A PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE CLASSROOM. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
*PARENTS: Please sign your child's planner every night and make sure they have completed all homework written for each day. Please be sure that your child is reading every night and recording on his/her reading log. Logs are due every Monday with both student AND parent signatures! Each student that has their log completed will be entered into a ticket drawing to win a prize from our prize box.
Check out the sections below to see what we are learning in each subject area!
We are in our second unit of reading which will focus on reading mysteries. We will be in mystery book clubs with our partners, reading the same text. This is a very fun unit where we will become third grade detectives while trying to solve the mysteries in our books!
Homework: Read 20 minutes each night, and record on your reading log. We will eventually introduce reader's responses into our homework once a week.
Reading Logs: We will use Reading Logs every night at home to monitor our reading. Our goal is to reach between 30-40 minutes of reading a night. By ensuring that your child is reading every night, you are helping your child increase their reading stamina and grow as a reader. Thank you for your support at home!
Each student will have individualized lists of spelling words. These word cards will be cut out each week and stored in their Word Study notebook. An additional copy of the words will be sent home for parents, along with a list of various activities that you can complete with your child. Nightly homework is not required, but any activites not finished in class will need to be completed at home that night. We will be on a 7 day schedule with each list, and complete practice activities in class each day. Spelling tests will be on the 7th day of our cycle, and will be written in your child's planner the day before. In addition to our spelling words, we will be focusing on increasing our vocabulary with high frequency words.
We will begin with Unit 1 which will focus on writing personal narratives. These are true stories about a small moment in our lives. We will use the inspiration from our decorated Writer's Notebooks to come up with a list of people and places that are important to us. We will then narrow it down to one small moment that we will develop into a detailed story. We will be writing AND typing during our Writer's Workshop time. Please remember to practice your typing skills at home. There are websites available on the symbaloo above for practice.
Topic 4- Use Multiplication to Divide- Division Facts *Topic 4 Test- Tuesday, November 27th
Homework: Each night, your child will complete a practice worksheet on a skill learned in class that day. Please make sure all highlighted problems are completed. Any other problems can be done for extra practice.
IMPORTANT: Third graders need to know their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts quickly and accurately. We will begin with addition and subtraction, and move on to multiplication and division once those skills are learned. We will be practicing all week and will have a quiz every Friday. Please review the facts nightly. Flash cards are excellent tools for practice at home. Please also utilize the Math Bingo icon on the symbaloo for free math fluency practice!
