Third Grade Action

November 16 - November 20

Welcome!

We have lots of important reminders and news! Please take time to read through the Newsletter! This is our last week before break and the 1st week of the six weeks.

A Glimpse into Our World

Third Grade Ag Barn Field Trip

Students need to wear closed toe shoes and pants for protection and weather. They may want to wear a small hoodie that they can tie around their waste.


All students need to bring a sack lunch. We will be eating at 11 am before leaving at 11:30. We will return shortly before dismissal.


If you are one of our chaperones, please come in and check-in. You can then follow the bus to the high school.

Addition and Subtraction Algorithim

Several of the students have mentioned learning the addition/subtraction algorithm at home (stacking). We are excited to see you working with your child at home, however until they can articulate the how and why while using it correctly, we encourage them to refrain from using at school until we have taught it. We will be teaching it, but developmentally they are not there yet. Thank you for your support.

What Are We Learning This Coming Week...

Language Arts: We are continuing our Author's Study on Allen Say. This week we will look at the various characters through feelings, thoughts and actions.


Students will continue to write a personal narrative on a lesson that they learned. We will revise and edit, showing vs. telling.


Spelling - Connections to read will go home today. We are working on Unit 7. Test will be Friday.


Social Studies: We will be reading and learning about cultures.


Math: This week we will be finishing Module 4 with fractions. Our summative will be Friday.


Science: This week we will be finishing our unit on Energy, Force and Motion. We will have a CBA on Thursday.


Over break, please collect dirt (yard, neighborhood, family member's house) and place in a clear jar with a lid. Jars need to be half full. This will be used when we return after break.

Third Grade Facebook Page

Last year we had our first facebook page and it was a huge success! We have not started using it quite yet. Once we have more parents following we will change the status to a secret page. So please find us, Haslet Third Grade.


We will use this for updates, reminders and most importantly a way to see into the classroom. We like to showcase the students learning and thinking.


We will be checking the office for a list of students who cannot be photographed, so no worries there! :)


We will be closing the Facebook page on Friday to secret. So please start following!

Important Information

All ride changes need to be turned into the office by 2:00 PM. Please email stalso@nisdtx.org and sriley@nisdtx.org. This allows us time for us teachers to be notified! Thank you!
