Week of 9/21/15
A Note From Ms. Salazar
Hello! We had another great (short) week in Room 106! The kiddos have been working hard and are really settling into the different routines throughout the day. Homework as been coming in consistently (yay!) and it was exciting to get into more academic tasks this past week.
We completed our Moby Max pretest and starting next week I will challenge the class to log on from home. We also started practicing on Typing Agent. In a couple weeks, your child will be asked to practice typing at home 20-30 minutes per week. We also got to meet our Kindergarten Buddies for the year and help them log onto the computer. Our third graders acted as great mentors and were SO patient and helpful with the little ones. :)
Check out the pictures below for a peek into your child's week as a third grader!

Next week we will work with money and making change!
We also played our first round of the Vocab Spinner Game! This is a big hit every year as students become "experts" on one of our vocabulary words, then give clues to their classmates during our game! Classmates guess the words and then discuss the definitions. It's a blast!
Next week we will begin to meet with Guided Reading groups as the rest of the students move through our stations.

Finally, we started to discuss bees and bee colonies. Students learned about the Queen Bee, Worker Bees, and the Drones. We talked about the different jobs each bee type has in order to help keep the colony running. We even made our own bee sticks!
Next week we will observe our [dried] bees more closely and discuss pollination.
