Mrs. Foulk's News
Here are a couple of key points to note:
-Please always ensure we have your email addresses at school. As a district, we are going paperless and we want to make sure you are receiving all important information.
-As a third grade team, we will be adjusting our homework routine after winter break. Students will be completing assignments using a website that uses the internet. IF YOU DO NOT have consistent internet access, please let us know as we can get your student paper copies to complete the assignments. There will be more specific details to come. Until then, homework will normal.

How Many Seeds In a Pumpkin?
Writing: Students have spent the week collecting ideas in their Writer's Notebooks for their memoir. They have included memories that are from special people, places and things.
Reading: We have introduced what traditional literature is. We are specifically using Fairy Tales to guide our next comprehension lessons. Students began to describe the characters in their stories with "character traits", which are adjectives that describe what a character is like on the inside.
Writing: Students will choose one small moment from their life and begin to write a draft of their personal memoir. We are going to really try to have students pick a "snapshot" of an event or experience instead of trying to tell an entire life-tale.
Reading: Using the Fairy Tales we introduced last week, we will look at what "themes" are in literature. Students will try to identify themes within their own texts as well.
Science: We are going to continue to work on learning about the scientific method. We will be conducting several small science experiments to focus on what "observing" is and how we collect data.
