Think Tank in Third

Weekly Update- May 12, 2017

Week at a Glance

Reading- Continuing Save Me a Seat. We are almost finished with AIMsweb assessments and then will move on to BAS testing for reading levels. Students have been working on their reading menu choices during this time.


Math- We are currently working on area and perimeter, and cannot wait to incorporate our robots into this unit at the end. We also worked on a week long, four-part, amusement park problem. Today we will do a gallery walk to finish this up.


Social Studies- We're currently working on a Map Skill Scavenger Hunt with partners.


The only homework for the rest of the year will be a reading log!!

Genius Hour Presentations

We will be having our 2nd round of Genius Hour presentations on Wednesday, May 24th from 4:00-5:30 pm. We know this is so close to the last day of school, but we want to be sure students have plenty of time to finish their projects and are able to show off all of their hard work. We will have an additional morning time on the 25th for students to present who cannot stay after school on the 24th.


If you have any questions/concerns, please let us know!
