Weekly Recap

Well, even though the students had Monday off from school, a snow day on Wednesday, and a two-hour delay on Thursday, last week was a very productive week in third grade and a good start to the third nine weeks of school. Report cards will go home this Thursday, January 25th. Please remember to sign and return the report card envelope to school. Also, please remember to check your child’s Monday folder for any graded papers coming home from last week. I hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed the warmer weather. Now, let's get ready to have another wonderful week in third grade!

Material Madness

This week, we will continue to focus on multiplication facts in math. We will review the facts we know, and we’ll continue our times tables by learning our 6s, 7s, and 8s facts this week. Please work on reviewing multiplication facts at home with your child each night in order to improve your child’s speed and accuracy on all facts. My class will go to Mrs. Turner for social studies this week. They will begin learning about ancient China. As for spelling, there will not be new spelling words this week. We will continue using last week's words throughout this week. Please help your child study his or her spelling words each night in order to prepare for a spelling test on Friday. Thanks for all of your help at home!

Reminders

** Report cards for the second nine weeks of school will come home this Thursday, January 25th. Please sign and return the report card envelope to school, as soon as possible!


** If you did not purchase a yearbook in August on “fee day,” your child brought home a yearbook order form last week. Until January 29th, the cost of a yearbook is $14. If there are extra yearbooks at the end of the school year, the cost will be $18.


** Conference forms went home last week. If you feel a conference is necessary, please return the form to reserve a time slot. If you already returned a form, a confirmation notice will come home in your child's Monday folder. A Sign Up Genius link will come out this week, so if you don't return a form, and you do feel a conference is necessary, you can reserve your slot using that.


** The school store will be open for grades 3-5 this Thursday, January 25th, from 8:00-8:20am.
