This Week in Third Grade

Math- We are working on skills practice and test-taking skills. This will be a purely review week. No new material will be taught.

English Language Arts- We will be expanding our vocabulary with a continued study of prefixes and suffixes, as well as beginning an in-depth study of "testing" words. We will continue practicing our reading comprehension skills through a variety of texts.

Science- We continue our exploration of our solar system with a variety of activities.

Social Studies- Student work is on display outside of our class. If you are in the building, I highly recommend you stop by and see the finished projects!

Change for Books

The Claxton community has been collecting loose change to raise money to buy books to make sure that everyone has something to read over the summer. The class that collects the heaviest amount of change will win a special book basket from the library. Our class was in the lead, last I checked. The collection ends this Friday, May 20th. We have one more week to clean out underneath those sofa cushions!

Person of the Week

Our Person of the Week is KayaBlue! We are so grateful to have KayaBlue as a member of our classroom community. She always has a smile and a kind word to share with each and everyone of us. Kaya sets an outstanding example in line, in the cafeteria, with our kindergarten reading buddies, and just about everywhere in between! Kaya always puts first things first and works diligently before moving on to the next activity. I love the questions KayaBlue brings me from the previous night's homework. They let me know that Kaya is trying her best to make sense of the problems put in front of her. Whats-more, she is always excited to go back to the drawing board and try again. I love her grit and enthusiasm for learning. Way to go KayaBlue!
