Ms. Damschroder's 3rd Grade

Week of December 15, 2014

What do I do at home?

Read EVERY night. Find a good book and READ, READ, READ!! You should read for at least 15-20 minutes every day. Make sure you are not reading something that is too easy or too hard. If you need books, let Ms. Damschroder know.

Practice memorizing multiplication and division math facts. if you need flash cards, let Ms. Damschroder know.

Over Christmas break students could log into sumdog or spelling city to practice skills. There is also a website called that has fun games. This website does not require a log-in, but there are sometimes ads on the sides. If you are interested I have included the link below. Students will need to click the games tab and can play from there.

LIFT-OFF--Students going to LIFT-OFF will need a note on Dec. 18, 2014!!!

Many students from my class have been attending the Lift-Off Program at the Presbyterian Church. The next session runs from Dec. 4th-Dec. 18th on Thursdays. If you signed a permission slip for your child to attend, I will also need a note or something written in their agenda so I know they will be attending. Some parents have already written notes in the agenda for each week and that is wonderful. You can also send in a note with your child on the day of Lift-Off if that is easier for you. Thank you for your cooperation!

Math-Unit 5

I will not be giving a Unit 5 math test. I will give a post-assessment of skills on Thursday, December 18th. This will cover what was taught in Unit 5, but only secure skills will be scored. Skills just learned in Unit 5 will be assessed for me to see who needs more practice or instruction. If you have any questions about this, please let me know.

Spelling Words

No new words this week!!

Christmas Party--Note to Parents

For our Christmas party on December 19th, will not have a traditional gift exchange, but we will have a "stocking stuffer" party. Students will be asked to bring one small item to school for each student on or before December 19th. Small items will be new and unwrapped. Items could include: pencils, a piece of wrapped candy, an eraser, a sticker, a small inexpensive toy (like something you could find at the dollar stores in the party section) etc. Please do not spend a lot of money. If you need help with this, let me know.
