Weekly Update- December 8, 2017
Week at a Glance
Math- We have just finished up our unit on rounding, which also hit heavy on addition & subtraction. We took an assessment today and will begin Unit 4, measurement, next week.
Science/Social Studies- The 3rd grade team in the blue hallway is putting together a 'science day' for the day before Christmas break. Students will rotate between the 4 classes to participate in 4 different science activities.
Writing- We have continued working on our personal narratives and building our writing stamina. I am so impressed by our writing! We will soon be picking a day to share our writing with parents. Be on the lookout for that date.
If you have any questions, please contact Carol Bahr.
We will take the MAP Reading test on Weds. Jan. 10th.
We will take the MAP Math test on Weds. Jan. 17th.
This time, the reading test will be an opportunity for students to pass the 3rd Grade Reading Guarantee requirement.
Family Traditions Project
We will have presentations in both the morning and the afternoon. Because I know schedules are busy, I want you to be able to see your child's presentation during a time that works for you. If you are interested in coming, please fill out this google form, indicating whether you would prefer a morning or afternoon time slot.
I will honor whatever time you sign up for, so plan on coming during that time. If you have no preference, I will let you know what time to come.
Rent Club Lunch
All students have paid their rent every month so far this year! We celebrated this month with our rent club lunch!
Students are using their dot images they created to revisit a math problem we solved weeks ago! I love that these lessons are all so cohesive!
The Giving Continues!
Students donated $500 of classroom money to surprise another class. We surprised Mrs. McCloud's 2nd grade class with Flat Stanley books and bookmarks.
Rent Club Lunch
Our class has been having trouble using one voice and we sometimes forget to raise our hand to speak. We set a goal and will check our progress at the end of the month.
Here Elliot showed off his mathematical thinking by giving us a visual representation for 2,006.

Flat Stanley mail keeps rolling in and we received some awesome mail from New York! Food!
