PTO Thank you!!

The 3rd grade team would like to thank you for your support of PTO! Because of your support we were granted science items, a DNA kit, digital scales, impact car, and Ernie Miller Ecosystems! We are so excited to have these resources as we teach the science standards this year! This will help our activities be more hands-on and engaging for each student! Thank you so much!

What's happening this week?


Spelling-- A new list will be coming home today. Students will be practicing FINAL consonant blends this week. Test will be on Friday.


Vocabulary--We will be having a vocabulary test this Friday, September 19th. The format will be the same as last test. There will be matching on the top but instead of 3 I will be challenging them to 5 sentences that SHOW the meaning of the vocabulary word.


Math-- We will continue Topic 2 this week. The Topic 2 test will be next Tuesday. Students will use their place value knowledge to help them add and subtract numbers using several different methods.


Science/ Reading-- We are starting our natural disaster research project! Last Friday, the students formed an opinion about the worst natural disaster and from those opinions I have created small groups to work in. The students will brainstorm driving questions for their project, research their disaster, take notes, and create a final project to present next week.

I will continue to meet with small reading groups this week as we continue to read about weather and work on main idea.


Grammar-- The class will be continuing to review nouns (common, proper, plural, and possessive), pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.
