A Glimpse into Our World

Ask the Kids

Here are some questions you can ask your child about the past week:

Language Arts

What are you reading? Why do we ask questions when we read? What do we do when we come to unknown words when reading? What are you writing? What strategies can an author use when writing leads? What strategies can an author use when closing their writing?

Social Studies:

What are the different regions of the country? How are maps and GPS similar and different?


How will knowing your 10's multiplication facts, help you with your 5's facts? What is multiplication? Write a multiplication story for 3 x 4.


What is the scientific method? What are the steps? Do hypothesis have to be correct? What do we include in the conclusion? (This is a repeat from the previous week!)

What Are We Learning This Coming Week...

Language Arts: Routines and rituals of reading and writing workshop. We will continue to build our stamina in reading and writing as we continue to build our routine. We will introduce the NISD Framework and write our "Beginning of Year" writing. In reading, we will work with context clues, multi-syllable words, supporting with why and identifying cause and effect.

Spelling lists for the week can be found in the Language Arts section of the GO Binder. Students will use the same Tic Tac Toe board as last week and it will be due Friday. Students can complete as morning work and/or for homework. We had a disappointing number of students who did complete last week. Please remind your kids to complete.

Social Studies: We will wrap up our study of maps by combining the many skills and creating a map of a Mystery Island.

Math: We concluded our Module 1 today with our Summative. The kids did amazing. The rest of the week will be spent estimating numbers 2 and 3-digit numbers and investigating addition strategies.

Science: We will dive deep into our matter unit by identifying properties of matter. Students will participate in multiple hands-on activities that will expose them to the different properties of solids, liquids, and gases.

Third Grade Facebook Page

Last year we had our first facebook page and it was a huge success! We have not started using it quite yet. Once we have more parents following we will change the status to a secret page. So please find us, Haslet Third Grade.

We will use this for updates, reminders and most importantly a way to see into the classroom. We like to showcase the students learning and thinking.

We will be checking the office for a list of students who cannot be photographed, so no worries there! :)

We will be closing the Facebook page on Friday to secret. So please start following!

Fall Conferences

We have sent out emails with information regarding Fall Conferences. We will start next week with extended hours on Tuesday and Thursday, from 4-7 pm. Please use the Sign-Up Genius link from your teacher to sign up! If you have questions, please let us know!

Important Information

All ride changes need to be turned into the office by 2:00 PM. Please email and This allows us time for us teachers to be notified! Thank you!
