Ready to Show Off

This week, we will be preparing for parent conferences. The students will complete self reflections on their progress and learning in math, writing, and reading. We have set goals for the next quarter. The kids will also reflect on their own behavior. Finally, each student will choose an artifact to show parents for each subject. We will be ready to show off on Thursday and next Tuesday!

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Conferences are coming up in a few days. They will be held on September 22 and September 27. You should have received a school messenger link in order to sign up for a 20 minute slot. I also sent an email last week. Conferences will be student-led. Make sure that you child is with you for this conference time. If you can not find a time that works for you on the link, please let me know so that we can work out another time. Get ready to be impressed by your little scholar!
Fact Fluency! Bryce and Arden are using the app, Math Fight, to practice addition and subtraction fact fluency.

Fact Fluency

Studies show that students that demonstrate math fact fluency at an early age go on to have success in math classes throughout their education. Third graders in Noblesville are expected to complete a minimum of 46 out of 50 addition and subtraction problems in 3 minutes. This is an expectation for now and not for the future. The focus will progress to multiplication after Christmas break. Therefore, we have a LOT of work to do. I plan on giving information about ways to practice at parent conferences.

Look What We're Learning!

Math: Using subtraction and addition to solve number patterns and word problems.


Inquiry: Studying types of communities and learning about our community of Noblesville


Writing: Different types of writing: Persuasive, Informative, and Entertaining and Revising and Editing our writing


Reading: Metacognition: thinking and reading. Then recording and tracking our thinking.

Coming Up!
