THIS THURSDAY 5/1 is a late start
Field Day 5/29 in the afternoon
Field Trip 6/9  all day
Third Grade Party 6/10 in the afternoon

We have a lot of great third grade learning this week:

Language Arts:

  • Read aloud: The One and Only Ivan
  • Biography projects are under way and we are on our way with research.  Each child needs at least one print resource (book, magazine, or a section of an anthology/ compilation of biographies)
  •  Your child should be reading 20 minutes a night.  Reading daily helps your child to increase their reading ability!

Math:

  • Fast fact quiz on Friday.
  • Regrouping in addition and subtraction.
  • Everyone needs to be finished memorizing the 0-10 times tables!!!!  We should be onto division!!!
  • It is helpful to practice multiplication/ division facts each night even for a few quick moments.  As we break into big multiplication, division, fractions and more math topics…multiplication/ division is VERY necessary!
  • New math unit: Geometry

Spelling (Word Study):

  • New words this week.  We will be spending the next several weeks going through a variety of spelling patterns that are common errors in our daily work.  We are continuing to follow the same process of words on Monday, work through the week and assessment on Friday.

    Social Studies/ Science:

    * We are continuing to work through Michigan history one event at a time.  We are continuing through statehood and important people in our state’s history.

    * Have you heard about our new classmates?  There are several special little friends in our classroom for the next few weeks.
