Mrs. Solis' 3rd Grade Class

October 19 -23, 2015

What we are learning next week:

What's up?

Math- This week we’ll practice finding the perimeter of figures using rulers or figuring out the unknown length using the information we can see. We’ll look at different ways to describe time and work on adding or subtracting jumps of time. Example: 30 minutes and 45 minutes makes 1 hour and 15 minutes. We will end our week with a test over perimeter and time.


Reading- This week we continue to look at styles of poetry and the students will learn to analyze a poem using SOAPStone. We will also be taking our first and second Reading DCA. The first will be reading a short story and responding to questions as well as one written in response. The second will be reading a poem and responding to questions


Science/Social Studies- This week in science, students will be exploring with mixtures. We are going to be making a Halloween Trail Mix to show a student how you can separate parts of a mixture. Ask your child about the different types of mixtures.


Writing- We will be continuing with Poetry. Students will be writing poetry in a structured framework. Themes will be fall, ourselves, and colors.

Homework

The next homework has been posted to Google Classroom and is due Friday, October 23rd at 7:45am. Read 20 minutes per day, Do 4 multiplication.com quizzes per day. The expectation for homework is 5 days of your choosing. Please do not do all 5 days of quizzes in one day. This homework sets your child up for nightly homework in 4th grade that is due back the following day. Research shows that 3rd graders should be doing no more than 30 minutes of homework per night. If your child does a math superstars worksheet, they can skip one day of homework.

Stallion Heroes will be recognized at our 3-5 assemblies:

Character Trait Stallion Heroes exemplify the character trait of the month ex: safety, responsibility, respectful.

Stallion Super Hero will be the name of the all around great student that exemplifies all character traits and school expectations all of the time.

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.
