A glimpse into your child's week! April 27 - May 1
Greetings from Third Grade!
This week students have done a better job of getting focused and coming to school ready to learn. I attribute this to having had a week of me back under their belts as well as the conversations that you have all had at home. I appreciate your support and know that it will allow me to guide your child towards being prepared for 4th grade!
We are in need of:
- SHARP pencils
- Dry Erase Markers
- Glass jars (salsa or spaghetti sauce size) without lids.... washed and label removed. These are for a project we will be doing at the beginning of May... please put your child's name on the bottom of it! We will be creating a Mother's Day/Special Person project. If your child will need to make two, please try to send in two jars, or at least notify me to let me know so that I can get them an additional jar.
3rd 100 Frye Words
This is a reminder that students will be reassessed on the final set of words at the end of May. Please encourage your child to practice the spelling of these words at the following site:
SCIENCE - Animals! Animals!
In addition, they completed their Animal Book quiz, using the animal book that they created in class to help assist them in answering the questions.
As a culmination of the Animal Unit and the end of the year, we will be visiting Wilderness Trail Zoo in Birch Run/Frankenmuth. A permission slip came home with your child today. I have room for 3 chaperones in addition to the ones that have already contacted me to go. If the interest exceeds 3 additional people, we will of course find a way to make it work. I just need to find out the logistics of space on the bus, cost, etc.
Next week we will begin learning about PLANTS!
Your child's District Test score has been entered into the online grade book and can be viewed at any time. Because this is a District Test, corrections can not be made. The students did VERY well on it!
This week in reading we attempted to do some Reader's Theater with small groups. This did not go so well, so we "stopped it before it got too bad" says Anna. :) We will spend next week reviewing how to write a summary so that students are prepared to take their end-of-the-year Reading Level Assessment (DRA).
