Ms. Kramr's 3rde Grade Newsletter

March 28th-April 1st

What we are learning this week.

Math- Students will be applying the multiplication fact strategies that we have learned this year to multiply a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number. We will also continue to solve one and two-step problems using multiplication and division.


Reading- This week in reading we will be working on visualization. We will read various examples of rich literature and use our imaginations to create the picture in our minds. We will also be describing our visualizations in our reader’s response notebooks.



Science- Students will be learning about plant traits. They will create a new offspring from two parent plants. They will have a test the unit test on Thursday. A review was completed and will be sent home in their notebooks.


Writing-We will be taking a district common assessment on grammar. We will also be continuing our books. Please return the Classroom Book publishing letter with your signature whether or not you are ordering the class book.

It’s Allergy Season!!!

Students with seasonal allergies will need a doctor’s note in order to stay inside from recess. They will be able to quietly read or draw due to teachers working during that time. **Allergy masks might help if you want your child to play.

If there is a doctor’s note and it’s a high allergen day, please alert your child’s teacher that indoor activities will be needed.
