What's New in Room 182
Mrs. Peters' 3rd Grade * October 14, 2016
Literacy choices went into full swing this week!
Proud to be partners
Thank you so much for all of your support and a super successful start to parent conferences. I have enjoyed my conversations with each of you so far and am looking forward to meeting with the rest of you on Tuesday evening. At any time, know that you can reach out with questions, concerns, or ideas! I am truly proud to partner with you in your child's third grade education.
Come read to us, but Shhh... it's a SECRET!
More information and a sign-up page can be found here.
Please e-mail me with any questions or if alternate arrangements need to be made.
We hope to see you, or someone special to your third grader, on one of our mystery days!
Focus on the Curriculum
Due to the short week, we will NOT be working on a new prefix this week.
However, please take the opportunity at home this week to log into Spelling City and review the prefixes we've already studied. Also, now that your student has received their other logins, try out the apps and websites for extra math and reading practice!
We will continue working on regrouping and addition and subtraction word problems in class. (Here's a link to a lesson that explains regrouping, as well as a few practice problems! This is always a challenging skill to catch on to!)
I hope your 3rd grader has shared with you about our exciting work with communities and location so far. Find time to challenge them to name their continent, country, state, city, and other communities they belong to! Soon they will have Book Creator creations to share with you, as well. (I'll try to link them in a future Smore!) We are so proud of their curiosity and contributions to discussions!!
