Friday Flyer for Room 33

February 7, 2014

What are we learning about in 3rd Grade?

ELA

In Reader’s Workshop, students will ask and answer questions before, during, and after reading literature and informational text. Students will also explain how aspects of a text's illustrations contribute to what is conveyed through words in literature. In Writer’s Workshop, students will continue to become familiar with biographies, continue to research, and group related information about a famous person of their choice.


Math

Students are working in Unit 5 which focuses on multiplication and division. Students are also practicing multiplication facts and taking timed tests several times a week. Make sure to have your child practice multiplication facts at home as well.


Science/Social Studies

We are studying geography in social studies. We are also studying the contributions of Martin Luther King Jr.

Valentines

Students may exchange Valentines on Thursday, February 13. I usually have them do this a little before the party begins so we don't use up our party time. If your child chooses to participate, please make sure they have a Valentine for each student in our class. There are 8 girls and 12 boys. I've included their names below. Also, please send your child with an already decorated box or bag to collect their Valentines. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!


Girls: McKenna, Alissa, Breanna, Hailey, Madelynn, Aimee, Tiara, Lilly

Boys: Cameron, Connor, Riley, Bryce, Emmanuel, Xander, Kjell, Teegan, Rowan, Aidan, Trystan, Mason

FYI

I will be gone on Monday, February 10. Mrs. Mreen will be here to teach for the day.
