What's New in Room 182

Mrs. Peters' 3rd Grade * May 20, 2016

"I am most proud of..."

We concluded our week of assessing, learning, talking, and growing by reflecting on our yearlong goals. Many of us wrote accomplishments from the week in our Family Journals, and our greatest accomplishments of the year will soon be on display in the cafeteria! Your support CONTINUES to help make great things happen in our classroom, and I look forward to where these next few weeks can take us!

Mrs. Peters

SURPRISE!! Mr. Burgess came to read today!

Special thanks to Mr. Burgess, one of Forest Hills' extraordinary ESL teachers, for starting his day in our classroom as the Mystery Reader! Mr. Burgess truly surprised us with an old classic new to ALL of us... Andrew Henry's Meadow. Our imaginations went wild afterwards then spilled over into our writing... the best kind of book!! Be sure to ask your 3rd grader about everything Andrew was up to and their ideas for a dream house!

Focus on the Curriculum


  • Weekly prefix: mono- (one)

Please make sure your student completes their Sort & Glue Matching Activity in their Learning Log.

Also, they must complete five Spelling City activities at home (via web or free app) during the week to practice.

*Note, this will be our LAST prefix/suffix of the year.

  • Book Clubs

We wrapped up nonfiction and cannot wait to spend the last few weeks enjoying novels in book clubs. Be sure to ask your third grader about their selection next week!


  • Chapter 10: Decimals
Our third grade work does not require extending beyond money, but we will spend this week exploring a little more about the world of decimals.

There will be NO new Math homework this week.

Students WILL bring home one last Graded Work packet to correct on MONDAY. Please review and sign it as soon as possible, so it can be returned.

iPad summer update

From this week's EPS Parent Post:

Summer Device Opt-In Opportunity

To support continuous learning over the summer, students who have completed grades 3 through 11 will be eligible to take their district issued device home over the summer months and keep it through the school year. This will empower students to experience more learning opportunities even when they are not in the presence of a teacher. For students who want to take advantage of this opportunity, digital content will be provided by the district and hosted in Schoology. It is an "opt-in" model, meaning that if students would like to participate, they will need a new iLearn agreement signed by parents/guardians. The new iLearn agreements will be handed out via hard copy at individual schools.


Reading NWEA this week - Tuesday & Wednesday

Please make sure your student gets a great night's rest and eats a filling breakfast to be ready for testing. Also, our room can be chilly, so an extra sweater or light jacket might be helpful!

Phy. Ed. (Day 2) - Wednesday (May 25) this week!

Don't forget your tennis shoes!


Students will need to begin returning materials and checking out just one book at a time as the year winds down. There are still 2 more weeks of library checkout though, and plenty more reading to be done!
