Reading

Literature circles are underway, and the students are super excited to sit down and discuss their books with their peers. Check in with your third grader to see what they are reading.

Writing

Students are busy drafting, revising, editing, and publishing their Eric Carle books.

Math

We will continue our study of area this week.


Don't forget to keep practicing those multiplication and division facts.

Science

We will spend time talking about genes that a plant can inherit from its parents. Students will also work with their habitat research group on their project.

HELP NEEDED!!!!!

I'm in need of four more volunteers to join us to the Kansas City Zoo. Let me know if you are available May 17th. It is an all day field trip. We typically arrive at the zoo around 10:00 and leave around 1:30. Thanks for checking your schedules!

Supplies

We only have a few short weeks to go in the school year, however, several students are starting to run out of important supplies that we use daily. Check in with your third grader to see if they need to bring in more pencils and glue. Some scissors have also gone missing. Thanks!

MAP Testing

Students will be taking the reading and math MAP Assessments on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. We will be testing fromm 1:20-2:30.
