Field Trip

We will be visiting Charles Towne Landing on Wednesday, November 11th. Please be sure to get your child's permission slip and $8 turned in to me ASAP. If you would like to be a chaperone please let me know so I can send home the form that needs to be filled out and returned. Chaperones will transport themselves to and from the field trip. We are not allowed to have students ride with their parents. If you would like to have your child dismissed early from school you may follow the bus back to school and sign them out in the front office.

Congratulations to Teagan Allen who was voted our Class Representative for the JBE Student Council.

AWESOME ACADEMICS!!!

In 3H we are continuing to pick up the pace of our academics!!!

Spelling - Depending on how your child is doing on their spelling tests, I may move them to a different group at any point throughout the year. I will let your child know if I feel the need for this as I want them to be learning the word patterns successfully, without having to struggle too much. If you have any questions about this, please don't hesitate to let me know. Be sure your student is completing their spelling homework each week and bringing it to school on Fridays.

SC History - We successfully completed our first big South Carolina history test! The next unit we will focus on is the Native Americans of SC.

Science - This week we will be starting our group habitat projects (during class time) to present to the class.

Reading - We are beginning to talk about how we can make connections while reading. *When your child is reading at home, ask them if they are making a Text to Self, Text to Text, or Text to World connection and for them to explain that connection to you!

Grammar - We spent last week talking about plural nouns: when to add -s, when to add -es, and when to change the word entirely. There will be a quiz on this topic Thursday.

Math - We have just begun our multiplication unit which should ensure that the students understand what is behind memorizing their multiplication facts. The students are doing great on their fact tests so far! This week is our 0s-3s facts test on Friday!
