Our Class Making A Difference:
As we enter the winter months, we realize that not everyone has access to warm socks, hats, gloves, or mittens. These are essential items for a Michigan winter! Our class would like to bless others by collecting these items to then be donated to area shelters and/or food pantries so they can be distributed to those in need.

If you are able, please send in new socks, hats, gloves/mittens. All sizes, kids through adult!
We will collect items through December 16. I will plan to drop the items off, but if you have a
place in mind and would be willing to do a drop off, please let me know!

Multiplication Practice Page: We will have our next practice page on Wednesday. Pages were sent home on Friday. Your child has been keeping track of their progress and should know what facts to practice for Wednesday.

MobyMax Fact Fluency practice: At conferences, I gave you an update of your child’s fact fluency scores for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. We spent the first part of the year reviewing addition and subtraction fluency. Since it is a second grade concept, our hope is that student’s have those facts mastered and have moved on to practice multiplication and division. Starting this week, I will move all students to  multiplication and division on MobyMax. If your child still needs some practice with addition and subtraction, please continue practicing at home.

PE CARES Food Drive continues through November 16.
Please consider donating non-perishable food items that will all be given to Love Inc. in Hudsonville.  The class that brings in the most items will be given a thank you and traveling to Hudsonville Bowling Lanes for a bowling party!!!! Thanks for your help.

Book List: At conferences, we discussed your child’s reading progress and their good-fit level. I am sending home a list of book titles suggestions. Use this as you help your third grader choose ‘just-right’ books. Look for this green paper to come home in daily folders.

Math Test, Social Studies Quiz, & Homework


We will have our unit 1 math test tomorrow. This will cover multiplication and division, multiplication properties, the area model for multiplication, and word problems. We have been reviewing in class the last few days. A great way to review tonight is to practice flashcards.

In social studies we have been learning about how we change and adapt to the environment. We will have a short quiz on this on Wednesday. A review page will come home.

A homework packet is coming home today and is due next Monday, the 26th. 

This Week…

New spelling words are coming home today. We are working on long i and short i patterns.  We will have our spelling test on Friday.

We have been studying movement in Social Studies. Today we reviewed and the review sheet went home tonight. Please take a look at this with your third grader. Tomorrow, we will have a short quiz to check understanding.

Continue practicing multiplication and division facts at home. I sent a page home today that tells about xtra math. It is an online math practice site. Please use that page for directions on how to access it. The site will have each student start out practicing addition and subtraction. When they pass, they move on to multiplication.

Our Halloween Party will be Thursday, Oct. 30 from 2:30-3:30.

We took the spelling pretest today and new words are going home. The test will be on Friday.

Spelling Words, Math Sundae, and a Quiz

A few things for you to know about:

Word Work Words went home yesterday. These words will be worked on and studied in class for two weeks. We will have a spelling dictation test next Friday 9/26. The words are:  along, while, might, next, sound, about, because, have, from, which    Please help your child practice these words at home.

In third grade, we learn and study our multiplication facts. To help us learn in a fun way, we use a multiplication sundae. We will do fact quizzes on Fridays. When a student passes the quiz they will earn a piece to their sundae. This is a ‘go at your own pace’ activity. It’s a fun way to challenge ourselves and help us practice our facts. We will be working on our sundaes most of the year. We celebrate by eating sundaes (the ingredients that have been earned) at the end of the school year! Please help your child practice their facts at home!

We have been studying location in social studies. A short quiz will be tomorrow. It will cover: 

Absolute Location:   The exact location of a place. Like an address.
Relative Location:  The location of a place in relation to another place.
Ex: our school is by Jet’s pizza.

We have also been studying direction words and how to use them as it relates to Michigan. Example:  Michigan is north of Indiana, Michigan is south of Canada.

Please study these concepts at home tonight!


Social Studies Quiz

On Thursday we will have a social studies quiz covering the information we have learned the last few days. We have been studying Michigan geography and have learned that geographers ask questions such as: what is it like? and where is it?  We have been learning about the natural characteristics of Michigan. These include the landforms and bodies of water. We have read about the landforms and bodies of water and found them on the map. We have discussed them and taken notes. Your child should be bringing home an informational sheet and a chart with the notes we have studied. Please help your third grader study, understand, and name the landforms and bodies of water for our quiz on Thursday. Thank you!
