# The DeLaPaz Dazzler

### February 11, 2016 and February 19th

This week we reviewed our reading skills this week with some technology fun and crafty projects. We worked on cause and effect, drawing conclusions, and text structures. We will continue our review next week and take our test on Friday.

We have also taken a quiz on two of our regions. This is to help for the fifty state test that will end our unit. In math we are back to our Everyday Math. We will still pull in our Pearson resources to help bridge the gap for next year!

## Important Dates

February 12th- No school

February 15th- No School

Feb. 26th- Six Flags Due

Today your child will bring home a report about their reading fluency and basic math skills. They were tested at the beginning of the year and then again in January. You will see a graph and then a little "report" under. Reports may say Continue current program or Further assess and consider individualizing program. This means that it says continue they are challenged at the current third grade level, and if it says further assess they either need help with the current level or need to be challenged. This is done through their reading groups and other areas of our day. In math this is done through different programs by either myself or Mrs. Busky. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions.

In reading we were doing drawing conclusions. We did a lot of worksheets. We did some haiku assignments. We learned that drawing conclusions is what you conclude from the facts you read in a story and your scheme. We also watched a video with no talking in it and every once in a wile we would pause the video and write on a piece of paper what you saw so far and then make a conclusion with the things you wrote down and what you know.

## Math- Mrs. DeLaPaz

This week in Math we talked about square prodects. For me they are easy. We also went back to doing stuff in are math journal. We are also back to are homelinks instead of doing it on are homework on the chromebook. I am happy because I do not like doing homwork on my chromebook. It is also easier doing it in my homelinks.

## Math- Mrs. Busky

Mrs. Busky’s math class

This week in Mrs. Busky’s math class we have been working on angles. We have learned about right angles, obtuse angles, acute angles, straight angles, and reflex angles. Most of the angles are not very hard, like the right angles. Although, some angles like the reflex, are tricky. The reflex angle is hard because you are measuring the outside the angle. Sometimes it can be hard. We also learned a trick that if we come across an angle that you can not measure on your protractor, subtract that number from 360 and then draw that angle. We have had a great week studying angles in math!!!
