This week in Literacy!

This week we will review our comprehension strategies and other concepts in order to prepare for the Final Exam on Friday, May 27th. During this time, teachers will be assessing students final reading level for Third Grade. Also, each student will be writing a "How to Survive Third Grade" book. Also, the Writing Exam will be Thursday, May 26th.


Please make sure your child is reading each night, listening to the stories, and taking the quizzes. Reading for 20 minutes each night is one of the best ways for your child to become a better reader. Third Grade is tracking the number of books read in order for the class to earn incentives, such as a popcorn party! Thank you for your help with this!

This week in Science!

What are the parts of a farm ecosystem?""What observations can we gather about plants and animals?" Our upcoming field trip to La Granja Don Pietro will support the learning in this unit.
