Miss Brown's Bulletin

Week of January 11-15

Goals

The kiddos have new AR and Compass goals that were set after Christmas Break.

Compass goals will be due at the end of the 9 weeks, March 8. Updates were sent home before break to let you know your child's new goal and whether or not they met their last one. The first report for the 9 weeks will be coming home this Monday. Please check Monday folders to see your child's progress towards meeting this goal.

The first AR report for the new goal will also be coming home Monday. I am proud to say that before break Ms. Ray gave a report to the teachers, and our class has the second highest amount of points in 3rd grade earned for the school year so far. Keep up the great work! These goals will be due on February 26.

We Are Learning To...

Language Arts

In Language Arts the kiddos will do their 3rd On-Demand of the year to check for growth in writing. In addition, students will begin to read Dawn of the Red Dragon. With this chapter book, the students will practice identifying story elements, answering questions about a text, and using clues in the text to determine unfamiliar vocabulary.

Math

In Math we will continue to practice multiplication and division. We will be using different strategies to help us solve problems faster. Remember to look at the Topic B newsletter in Monday folders this week to see what we will be practicing.

Also, mad minutes are taking place throughout the week. Check Monday folders to see which number 1-12 your kiddo is working towards mastering, and help them study, study, study! We will celebrate in the Spring with an ice cream party where students will receive the parts of the sundae they earned.
