Mrs. Haas' Third Grade News

January 4, 2016

I hope you all enjoyed your time with family and friends. At my house we enjoyed staying in PJs all day, playing in the snow, watching lots of movies, and playing games. Now that we are all rested, it is time to gear up for another fun quarter ahead.


A big thank you to you all for my holiday gift. I love my new scarf, and my family and I have already dined at Cactus Grill. Thank you so much for thinking of me.

Reading

This week we will be returning to our reading series Lead 21. We will spend time learning about word parts. This week we will focus on suffixes. Students will learn how to use word parts to help them understand the meaning of words. We will focus on the suffixes -er, -est, -ed, -ing, -ly, -y.

Writer's Workshop

We wrapped up second quarter learning about persuasive text. This week students will begin brainstorming for their own persuasive writing piece.

Math

We will kick off Topic 8 this week. We will focus on multiplication and division with this topic.


We will not focus on a new fact for our Friday multiplication test this week. The test on Friday will be a review of the facts we have learned so far: 0,1,2,3,5,9, and 10. Spend some time reviewing the facts with your kiddo this week.

Science

We will learn a little bit about coding this week. Check in with your 3rd grade to see what they were able to code.
