Mrs. Kelley's 3rd Grade Class Newsletter

December 2014

Hello Families,

Wow! I can't believe it is almost Winter Break! It seems like just a short time ago I was meeting my new students for the first time! They have learned so much. I am very proud of their progress so far in Third Grade!

We have a "light" work week so please have your student spend time on their 9 for 9 challenges. Many students have finished ALL of their challenge squares but I have a few students who have only completed one square or none at all. Please see the 9 for 9 recording sheet in your child's Take Home Folder. This would also be a great week to spend time at home on Think Through Math or practicing multiplication and division facts with flashcards or online games.

I have the important dates listed below but please make a note of the class party on Thursday afternoon at 1:30. You are invited to attend! Also, remember that students have early release at 12:30 on Friday, December 19th. That will be a sack lunch day in the cafeteria if your child would like to order a lunch.

Please make a note of a few dates coming up!
