Welcome Back! I hope your break was just what you, your third grader, and your family needed to get rested and renewed to begin 2020!
Here is an update from third grade:
Reading and Math Fact Log due every Monday. Please help your child remember to sign on the days they read and practice facts. This is a great way to build responsibility in your third grader.
Writing: We continue working on informational writing. We are learning to use different text structures and will be using one to organize and write about a topic.
Math: We continue working on measurement, elapsed time, and word problems. We will be learning about graphs in upcoming lessons.
Reading: Today we set goals as writers and made a plan to reach our goals. We have been working on reading a nonfiction text and identifying the main idea and details so we can teach about the topic.
Social Studies: Today we began learning about the Economics of Michigan. We will learn about natural, capital, and human resources.
•Please help your child remember to pack one healthy snack for our morning snack time.
• Today we talked about ways to stop the spread of germs and sickness. It’s that time of year! We talked about covering our cough, washing hands with soap and water, and not sharing straws, drinking glasses, and utensils. Please help your child remember these healthy habits as well. Thank you!
• In our class, we talk a lot about being mindful. We talk about being a mindful learner and reflecting on our growth and setting new goals for ourselves. We have talked about being mindful of others by showing respect and also being mindful of our own emotions and knowing when we need to use some calm down strategies. We watched this video today to remind us of strategies to use when we need to calm down. These are great strategies for your third grader to use at home, too!
