3rd- 6 Weeks
*Communication- It is very important to check your child's planner daily for any communication regarding behavior, homework, or other concerns. Teachers check the planner daily for parent signatures or notes daily. Parent communication is encouraged please feel free to communicate through the planner, through e-mail, or set up a parent/teacher conference.
*Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS)- Natalia Elementary school is using an online behavior system to track student behavior. Students can earn and lose points based on behavior. Students begin each day with 100 points. Students may gain points for exhibiting behavior that goes above and beyond.Students may lose points for exhibiting negative behavior. Once a student loses points they have opportunities to regain points. Students must maintain 500 points every week in addition to having no write ups in the planner to be rewarded with the end of 6 weeks movie reward. Students who reach 550+ points will earn lunch in the classroom with the teachers weekly.

In Science students will explore different forms of energy, including mechanical, sound, light, and heat/thermal, as they are used in everyday life. Students also investigate forces, including pushes, pulls, magnetism and gravity, and their effects on the motion of objects. Students will show and observe how position and motion can be changed by pushing and pulling objects to show work being done.
