Mrs. Solis' 3rd Grade Class

September 28 - October 2, 2015

What we are learning next week:

Math- Students will be working with the x2 and x4 multiplication strategies. They will also work problems involving concepts taught earlier based upon information gathered from the first test.

Reading- Students will be learning about the theme of a story. As they read, they will learn to identify the author’s message, lesson or overall idea of the literature. As you watch your child read this week, ask them to identify the theme of the story they are reading and discuss evidence from the story to support their thoughts.

Science/Social Studies- Students will be exploring the properties of solids, liquids, and gases. As students conduct exploration activities in groups, they will be developing their scientific inquiry and discovery skills.

Writing-Students will be finishing the personal narrative, and writing letters this week. Focus of the letters has to do with our PBL. Ask your child who is he/she writing and why.

Library Time

Our library time has changed! Our new time is Tuesday from 2:00 - 2:30pm.


Library: Every Tuesday

We have P.E. on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Please make sure your child has tennis shoes.

Please initial your child’s planner every night.


Do not rely on an email or phone call to the classroom for transportation changes. Teachers are busy working with students during the day and often times don’t get an opportunity to check email until the end of the day. Please call the office during the school day so that they can get a message to the classroom.
