Walkathon

It was so nice seeing you all at parent teacher conferences.  I am so glad we could work together to make third grade a successful year for your child.  Please don't hesitate to email me or message me, over jupiter, if you have any questions or concerns.

In reading we are working on asking questions and summarizing the stories that we read.  Students are just learning how to summarize and we worked on asking questions last week.  These anchor charts are helpful in reminding them how to use these strategies.

In math we are working on understanding division.  We will be taking a test over division on Wednesday.  Then we will be starting a new unit over multiplication and division facts.  We will be starting with multiplying and dividing by 2.  This will be easy for some but I encourage them to do the challenge work that will be provided to them.   

Writing we are working on writing true stories.  They will be learning how to divide a story into different paragraphs, how to punctuate dialogue and how to write the best lead.  

We are continuing to work with our groups on our topics for the Roman Empire.  They will be presenting their topics starting on Friday. 

We please join us on Saturday for the Walkathon.  This is one of the ways that we raise funds to for the school.  It would be great to see you and your family while having a great time 

Just as a reminder Until December 6th. We will have Library on Tuesday mornings.  Please have your child bring their books back on Monday.  
Thank you!
