What's New in Room 182

Mrs. Peters' 3rd Grade * October 9, 2015

"Author's Chair" is one of our favorite times of the week!

Proud to be partners

Thank you so much for all of your support and a super successful conference week. I have enjoyed my conversations with each of you so far and am looking forward to meeting with the rest of you on Tuesday evening. At any time, know that you can reach out with questions, concerns, or ideas! I am truly proud to partner with you in your child's third grade education.


Mrs. Peters

Come read to us, but Shhh... it's a SECRET!

This month, I am kicking off our "Mystery Readers" volunteer opportunity. Each Friday, we hope to host one of our parents, family members, or former teachers as a guest reader, but shh... we can't know it's you!!

More information and a sign-up page can be found here.

Please e-mail me with any questions or if alternate arrangements need to be made.

We hope to see you, or someone special to your third grader, on one of our mystery days!

Focus on the Curriculum

Due to the short week, we will NOT be working on a new prefix this week. Students will also NOT have a math weekly review sheet.

We WILL continue working on regrouping and addition and subtraction word problems in class.


Please take the opportunity at home this week to log into Spelling City and review the prefixes we've already studied. Also, now that your student has received their other logins, try out the apps and websites for extra math and reading practice!
