3rd Grade - Week 15 12/06/15
MATH: We will be continuing with multiplication, word problems, and mastering our times tables. Later in the week and into next week, we will be starting to work on area.
READING: Next week we will be looking at fables and working on summarizing skills, comparing/contrasting, and comprehension skills.
SOCIAL STUDIES: We will be finishing off the branches of the government activities. Due to music practices, we will not have time to start the next part of our unit.
** Homework - Please sign your child's agenda on a daily basis to show that your child has completed that night's homework. I expect homework to be turned in on time. Every Monday we write all the homework in our agenda so we know when it is due in. Also, please try and let your child do the homework by themselves, but then check it over with them. We go through homework every day so the children are aware of how they should answer the questions.
MATH AND READING BENCHMARK TESTS
On Tuesday, the children will be doing a Reading benchmark test. Again, this will just inform us where the children are at.
READ TO ACHIEVE PORTFOLIOS
On the Friday, we will be playing some 'British' inspired party games and will watch a film with popcorn. I think the children will have a great last week before the holidays.
If you have any cool ideas for crafts and activities we can do during that week, please send me an email! I am always open to new ideas.
A few children are not being responsible for their guided read books and are leaving them at home. Or they are not completing the activities. These activities help to build on the skills we are learning in class and will help them throughout the year. Please encourage your child to be responsible for getting their work done and brought into school on time.
If you know your child will not be attending, please sign the form and return it so we can plan ahead.

There was a much better collection of box tops this time! Thank you so much to everyone who brought them in. The next collection will be December 11th.
