A glimpse into your child's week! April 20 - 24
Greetings from Third Grade!
This week we hit the ground running, doing our best to make up for lost time together. Students have had to become readjusted to my expectations and there has been some push back as a result. I joked that your children were glad I was back... for about 5 minutes(!) until they realized I was going to hold them accountable and get them ready for 4th grade!
Because I was out of the room, a lot of things were done in ways that are different than how I would have. Naturally any change is hard; change in the midst of the year is even more difficult. Because of this, I appreciate your patience and positive attitude about these remaining 7 weeks - which is something I CAN control. :)
Please keep in mind that poor student behavior is a concern that impacts EVERYONE. When students are choosing to act out, they not only are impacting their ability to learn, but the ability of everyone around them.
We are in need of:
- SHARP pencils
- Dry Erase Markers
- Glass jars (salsa or spaghetti sauce size) without lids. These are for a project we will be doing at the beginning of May... please put your child's name on the bottom of it!
3rd 100 Frye Words
This is a reminder that students will be reassessed on the final set of words at the end of May. Please encourage your child to practice the spelling of these words at the following site:
SCIENCE - Animals! Animals!
This week our focus was on bird beaks and different types of teeth. Students completed the first part of a Bird Beak Performance Task on Friday afternoon and we will be finishing it up on Monday.
Students took their STAR Reading (computer-based) assessment this week and were given their new AR Goal Sheets on Friday. Your child's should be housed in their binder. Because of being out of the classroom and unable to enforce the AR goals, last Marking Period I did not use AR as a grade. This marking period, just like with the 1st and 2nd Marking Periods, the percentage of your child's achieved goal will be included as one reading grade assignment.
