Mrs. Hoehner's Weekly Wrap - Up
All you need to know about our life in 3rd grade!
I must admit, I am NOT great at technology but I am wanting to grow in this area, so I am stepping out of my comfort zone! I am trying my hand at creating this SMORE..an online flyer. This SMORE will provide you with info about our class. The COOLEST part is that I (with Mr. Cottrell's help) will be able to add web links that I feel are important to you and your child as well as begin able to add a fun photo gallery of our activities here at school! SO EXCITING! There is even a comment section for your questions or comments!
It is hard to believe we are wrapping up our first quarter of the school year! It really has passed so quickly. As I walk away for the classroom for this first break, I am already excited about getting back to work with them in a week. Thank you for sharing your kids with us this year!
Reading, Writing and Word Work
When we return to school, readers will continue focus on finding main ideas and supporting details. Students will also be learning strategies that will help them set goals and work deliberately in order to increase the level of text that they read.
As writers, students will wrap up their personal narratives and begin to focus on writing informative pieces. This is exciting as we will be writing information while we are learning to read it!
Word workers will be continuing to learn that there is a relationship between the sounds they hear and the letter combinations they see.
A fun, tutorial and gaming session that allow students to improve reading skills based on their needs. Students username and PW are in their leadership binder.
Math at it's most fun! Students learn math concepts through games and tutorials. Student username and PW are in their leadership binder.
XtraMath is a fluency program that we use in our class. We try to do this 2-3 times a week. This can be used on a computer or through a browser on a tablet.
We are continuing to dive into the world of addition and subtraction! We have learned about several different strategies to use. We have also learned about the associative, commutative, and identity properties! Please ask your kids what these are. It's great learning if they can explain it to you.
We have been really working hard on solving word problems. These real-world connections can help make the learning "real" for you child. Please encourage them with word problems that they may be interested in!
