What's New in Room 182
Mrs. Peters' 3rd Grade * December 4, 2015
Back to work!
It was so much fun to get back into the groove this week, with three full weeks of December to fill with learning! We focused a lot on making our classroom and building transitions as smooth as possible, so that we can get the most out of our day!
A special "high five" to parents and students for an amazing boost to the class average on prefix test scores this week! Your extra studying and time on Spelling City (and some of you, even homemade flashcards!) really paid off. Keep up the outstanding work!
And today's Mystery Reader was... Mrs. Neeser!
Don't forget to make us one of your New Year's Resolutions and come read to us in 2016!
More information and a sign-up page can be found here. We hope to see you, or someone special to your third grader, on one of our mystery days!
Focus on the Curriculum
- Weekly Prefix: Super-, Sur- (over, above, beyond)
Please make sure your student is completing their Matching Activity in their Learning Log on Monday night, so that they have plenty of time to learn their new words.
Also, they must complete five Spelling City activities at home (via web or free app) during the week to practice.
Students will build on what they learned about finding the main idea and supporting details of a nonfiction text to write summaries. A sample template we use can be found here.
- Chapter 7: Multidigit Multiplication and Division
Students are using many different strategies to master these skills! They ALL need to practice, practice, practice memorizing those multiplication facts at home, though!! Use IXL or www.multiplication.com,a FANTASTIC resource with teaching points, games, and printable flashcards.
Homework will be "Weekly Review #9", sent home Monday and due Friday.
