Think Tank in Third

Weekly Update- May 5, 2017

Week at a Glance

Reading- We have started AIMSweb testing and will be doing BAS testing immediately after. During this time, students will be working on Reader's Theater, analyzing informational text with a partner, writing about reading to a friend, and practicing cursive writing.


Math/Science- We just finished up our fractions unit and took an assessment on Thursday. Students did very well on this assessment and we're so excited! We are moving on to perimeter and area, and will be using robots at the end of the unit to explore these concepts.


Writing- We should be finishing up our T is for Think Tank book next week and will move on to another class book, which will be modeled after the book The Best Part of Me.

Genius Hour Presentations

We will be having our 2nd round of Genius Hour presentations on Wednesday, May 24th from 4:00-5:30 pm. We know this is so close to the last day of school, but we want to be sure students have plenty of time to finish their projects and are able to show off all of their hard work. We will have an additional morning time on the 25th for students to present who cannot stay after school on the 24th.


If you have any questions/concerns, please let us know!
