Here’s an update of our learning in third grade:
Writing/Social Studies: We are working on writing about a public issue. We are learning about point of view and how to connect Core Democratic Values to our point of view.
Math: We are working on solving word problems and comparison problems. We are learning about strategies such as drawing comparison bars and noticing when word problems have extra or hidden information.
Reading: We are working on completing our research and writing for our biography project. I am working on doing some reading assessments and I have loved to see our students grow as readers this year!
A FEW MORE THINGS TO KNOW:
- SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDER: I sent home a book order today. I was given book coupons to pass out. If your child received one, it will be stapled to their book order packet. This will be the last book order I send out and it’s a great way to stock up on some books for the summer. As always, our class appreciates your orders as it allows me to choose some free books for our classroom library! Orders are DUE ONLINE BY MAY 28! Thanks!
- LIBRARY BOOKS: Last Friday was the last day for books to be checked out of the library. Please remind your child to be looking for their books that need to be returned and start sending them back to school!
- We will be celebrating the LAST TEN DAYS OF SCHOOL starting this Friday! Each day I will reveal the special celebration, but the first day requires some preparation.
On Friday May 24, we will celebrate with Totally Red, White, and Blue day! Your child may choose to wear red, white, and blue. This also recognizes our Memorial Day weekend!
**NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY, May 27 due to Memorial Day!
