Mrs. Solis' 3rd Grade Class

October 17 - 21, 2016

What we are learning next week:

What's up?

We will continue our poetry unit in reading and writing. We will focus on identifying theme and summarizing poetry as well as writing using sensory language.


In math, we will be finalizing our unit on multiplication. Ask your child what their multiplication strategies are for x5, x10, x2, x4, x8. We will be reviewing in class all next week. Our math DCA will be at the end of the week.


In science, our focus will be forms of energy. We will be learning more about mechanical, light, sound and heat energy.

Reminders

Library: Every Tuesday

We have P.E. on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Please make sure your child has tennis shoes.

Please initial your child’s planner every night.


Transportation:

Do not rely on an email or phone call to the classroom for transportation changes. Teachers are busy working with students during the day and often times don’t get an opportunity to check email until the end of the day. Please call the office during the school day so that they can get a message to the classroom.
