This week in Singapore Math!

For this half week, students will continue with Chapter 19-Area and Perimeter. Chapter 19 Test will be Wednesday, May 11th. Students will then review and maintain their skill set in place value, rounding, and estimation.

This week in Literacy!

This week we will continue with Theme 15 Week 2- Precious Resources. The comprehension strategy for this week is Use Fix-Up Strategies: using strategies when you get stuck on a word. For grammar, students will review irregular verbs, such as go, be, and bring, suffixes, such as -ly and -fully, and adverbs such as quietly, and outside. Wednesday and Thursday will be review of the concepts we have learned these past two weeks, and then Theme Test 15 will be on Friday, May 13th.


Please make sure your child is reading each night, listening to the stories, and taking the quizzes. Reading for 20 minutes each night is one of the best ways for your child to become a better reader. Third Grade is tracking the number of books read in order for the class to earn incentives, such as a popcorn party! Thank you for your help with this!

This week in Science!

Our final science unit of the year will be Habitats an Environment. In this unit, students will explore the essential question, "How can we and why should we protect the plants and animals in our local environment?" Our upcoming field trip to La Granja Don Pietro will support the learning in this unit. Please send in a clean, empty 2-liter soda bottle for one of our exploration activities. Thank you!
