What's New in Room 182
Mrs. Peters' 3rd Grade * January 29, 2016
Congratulations to our 3rd graders for showing perseverance and team work as we achieved our Read-A-Thon goals! We all enjoyed a well-deserved assembly this afternoon to celebrate!
A few notes:
- For now, I request that they split their time between their weekly prefix on Spelling City (app or website) and multiplication fact fluency on either MobyMax or IXL on Tuesday nights.
- Please let me know if you need a new copy of your student's log-ins for the apps/sites we require.
- You will need to connect to home or a public wi-fi server. (EPS' i-Learn server will not reach your home!)
- You are welcome to charge the iPad up at night, if you have the appropriate charger at home. iPads will come home with plenty of power for the night's activities, however.
THANK YOU, Mrs. Kaan!
Today Evie's mom surprised us with some of her favorite texts from 3rd grade... Shel Silverstein poems! It was fun for us all to hear how poetry and creative writing really inspired her love of reading and learning. We're inspired now, too!
Remember, we still have MANY slots open for 2016, so if this sounds like an experience you (or someone special to your 3rd grader) would like to have, check out more information and a sign-up page here. Hope to see you soon!!
Do you save Box Tops?
Focus on the Curriculum
- Weekly Prefix: ...
Students practice visualizing regularly in their reading, so we're going to dig a little deeper into the setting of a story. Click here or here for a little review you can practice and apply to nightly reading!
- Chapter 8: Fractions
Students have all done an amazing job learning and applying fractions so far! We will continue our learning with fractions on a number line and fractions of a set this week. Remember, there are so many fun ways to practice fractions in our daily lives (like cooking!). Enjoy!
Also... PLEASE continue to reinforce multiplication and division skills however you can at home. IXL, MobyMax, or www.multiplication.com are all phenomenal tools to help your student excel!
Homework will be "Weekly Review #15", sent home Tuesday and due Friday.
