Mrs. Kirchner's 3rd Grade Leaders!

January 1, 2016

Welcome 2016!

I hope that your families have had time to relax and visit with family and friends. My battery has been recharged and I am anxious to get back to school. Hopefully, the spring weather will stick around the remainder of winter, so we can avoid any interruptions (snow days)! Plus, I am a powered by the sun!

Thank you!

Thank you for all the very thoughful gifts! I was very overwhelmed by your generosity! It was obvious how well they all know me by the gift choices! And yes, I have enjoyed most of the coffee, chocolate and other wonderful treats!

There are no words that can truly express my sincerest gratitude for your kindness!!

Reading Focus: Main Idea and Summarizing

This week, we will be continuing our focus on finding the main idea of a text. Next week, we will be using this information to begin summarizing a text. We started summarizing prior to the break, however I will be working with them in small groups to give them more support in learning how to do this skill with confidence.

Math Focus: Area and Mulitiplication

We will be working with arrays this weeks to begin our explorations of finding the area of a shape. Please keep practicing multiplication facts at home for fluency.

Writing: Informational

We are almost done with our first informational text this year. They will be researching a few questions they have about their topic. It is important that they learn the skills needed to research a topic, in order to write more about it. Next, week they will begin writing their final draft. We will be taking time to "celebrate" their writing with another 3rd grade class. I am eager to have them share their writing!
