  • If you have any Holiday movies you want to send to school (rated G or below) please feel free! If we have any free time, it's nice to have one to pop in :)
  • December reading logs are due after Holiday break. Check the backside of the page for updated goals!
  • We are in desperate need of glue sticks for the classroom. Almost everyone has used up 2 or 3 and we are all out! If you have any extras at home that you want to send, we would really appreciate it! :)

Reading/ Language Arts

We will not have a reading story this week so there will be no comprehension or vocabulary tests. No spelling either :)


December Book It minutes will be due on January 4th, when we get back from winter break. As a class, we read 3,826 minutes last month. Let's try and beat that!

Math

We will be continuing to work on our multiplication facts and the relationship between multiplication and division this week. We will also begin introducing the meaning of division and strategies for solving division problems.


Every week, we will be working on our math facts using Math-A-Minute. Math-A-Minute is a program used to help students master their basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. Once a student masters a level, they move on to the next level. It is vital that students have a full mastery of their basic facts so we will be practicing a lot! You should be seeing little slips of paper with math facts on them coming home in take home folders. If your student didn't finish, or missed a problem, help them practice and they will try again the next time we do Math-A-Minute!

Science/ Social Studies

This year, our third grade science skill is "forces" and our third grade social studies skill is Oklahoma History. We will be working on these topics throughout the school year.
