Last 10 days of THIRD GRADE!

I can’t even believe we are in the last 10 days of school!!!

To celebrate all our accomplishments this year, we will be doing an activity each day.
Each activity will begin with the letters in: THIRD GRADE.

Here’s what we did today:
Tasty treat while we celebrate our writing.
       I provided a snack while we shared our biography speeches with our classmates

I shared the activity for Tuesday because it is one they will need to know ahead of time.
Tuesday, May 30 is:

Hat day or silly sock day!


3rd Grade News

Tomorrow will be hat day for third grade! We will also be celebrating two birthdays with a pizza lunch. Please send in a drink (water, juice) with your child.

Writing: We are finishing up informational writing pieces. The students chose a topic they know a lot about and learned how to organize their information in a way that their reader will understand.

Word Work: We have been using some new word cards this week. Please practice these words at home:  thought, heard, half, group, great, enough, brought, asked

Social Studies: Our class is beginning a new social studies unit in which we will be learning about Michigan history and how we learn about the past.

Math: We continue to work in math groups. We have been working on telling time before and after the hour as well as adding and subtracting time. Please work on telling time with your child at home. This is an important skill, but is often a struggle for many third graders. Continued practice is helpful! Thank you.

Reading: We are digging into non-fiction text and learning how to paraphrase and find the main idea and details of a text.





National Hat Day falls on Saturday, January 15.  To celebrate this important event, we would like all students and staff to wear their favorite hat on Friday, January 14–our POPCORN DAY.

Hats serve many purposes.  They are used for protection, health and as a fashion statement.  Hats can also help us to define our interests and individuality.

Friday, January 14 is a chance to make a statement and to display you favorite headgear.

Did you know? More body heat is lost from your head than other parts of the body. So, wearing a hat goes a long way towards staying warm on a cold January day.
