Pratt's Primary Corner

Weekly Update- November 17, 2017

Week at a Glance

Reading- This week we have really hit hard on making inferences, or drawing conclusions. We learned that we make sense of stories by using what we already know and what the text says to figure out what the author is not directly saying.

Math- We are currently working on unit 3, rounding and also reviewing 3-digit addition and subtraction.

Writing- We have been working on our heart maps to help us brainstorm some ideas for our personal narratives we will be writing.

Science/Social Studies- Continuing E4Tech, Flat Stanley & Classroom Economy system.

No Homework for the month of November, so families can focus on the One School, One Book project! :)

"What did you learn in school today?!"

At parent/teacher conferences I had a few of you ask how you can get your child to talk about school when they get home. One suggestion I have is checking out our classroom Twitter! When you see the pictures from the day, you can use them to guide your questions. For example, instead of asking what they learned today you could say "I see you did a science experiment today with lava lamps, can you tell me about that?"

If you would like to follow us on twitter, my handle is @teacherkpratt

Thank you!

Thank you all for coming out for parent/teacher conferences! I loved talking to you about your child's successes so far in 3rd grade! I can't wait to meet in the spring to discuss how much they've grown! :)

Thanksgiving Break will be Nov. 22-Nov. 26 ---NO SCHOOL
