Coming Up... near and far
Monday April 27- Wednesday April 29- EOY (End of Year) PARCC Assessment. We will follow the same routines for the EOY assessment as the PBA assessment in March (no HW, light classwork). Our schedule is as follows:
Monday morning ELA
Tuesday morning Mathematics Test 1
Wednesday morning Mathematics Test 2
May 11- All Tatem third grade classes are visiting the Rowan Planetarium. This will gear us up for our last Science Unit-Space. We will return back to Tatem in time for lunch.
May 27 and 28- We will invite parents and special friends in for our Bio Bash Presentations. We will not even begin this project until May, but I wanted to give you the dates for planning purposes. The week before (May 18), I will send out a sign up sheet so that you can sign up on one of the dates to come in and see your child share/perform their biography project.
June 12- We will be having our Reader's Cafe (name subject to change) from 7:45 am- 8:20am. Parents will be invited to come to the classroom and enjoy a morning of reading with your almost 4th grader! Our "Once Upon a Time" books will be on display from our final writing unit.
Late May/June- We will have 3 "walking field trips" around Haddonfield. I will send out more information closer to these dates along with a chaperone sign up.
Book Bag Reports
Bags, objects, and graded rubrics will make their way home sometime next week. I will attach a QR code to each rubric so that you can view their presentation to the class.
Something to Think About
We will begin this project on May 4. I have asked the children to begin talking with their families about what person they should choose to make it a more thoughtful and meaningful experience. This doesn't mean they must come to school on the 4th with a definite selection, but having some ideas will get us started on the right foot.
Thank you for your support!
