Mrs. Reynolds' 3rd grade Newsletter
October 13. 2015
The site is great, because the book can read aloud to you, or you can just read it to yourself.
Extension activities - I have passed out an extension activity page that is either yellow or orange and should be in your child's Dodd folder. It is also attached to this newsletter if you can't seem to locate it. The due date is October 30th. These activities are an extension of what we are learning in class and are not supposed to be a stressful thing, but hopefully will ignite some creative juices and get students thinking outside the box to create some some samples to share with their classmates and teacher. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions or concerns.

Reading and Target Reading
Target Reading - Our story this week was an expository story called Firefly Facts. It was an information text about fireflies. We are working on creating proper nouns, expanding sentences, synonyms, past tense verbs, possessive nouns, and commas in a series.
Don't forget to have your child record the title and minutes they read at home each night. We are starting our Book It reading and students can earn a free pizza each month if they meet the minutes in our reading goal!
AR is up and running, so with every book that is read at home or in school, students can test AR and earn points for comprehension. We might not always have a designated free time to test, so they will need to be the ones staying on top of which books they have read so that they can test. (Another reason, for recording titles and minutes in their planners.)
