A glimpse into your child's past week! September 18th
Greetings from Third Grade!
Our volume has been the focus this week, as it also is a focus school-wide. You may have heard your child mention Voice Levels. I've included our Voice Level chart to help explain. Our class is extremely talkative and adjusting to my expectations regarding volume in the classroom has been difficult for some. I keep reiterating that my job is to ensure that every child learns and that many students cannot learn in a room that is too noisy.
In addition, students have received their first grade in the grade book. This is a Social Student Map worksheet that came home in their Friday Folder today. To test out your ability to access your child's grades on ParentVUE, you may want to use the link at the bottom of this newsletter to try it out. Information on how to log in can be obtained in your Purple Folder or by calling the office at 591-7121 (If you've never logged in I believe you need the office to provide you with login info!).
FRIDAY FOLDERS - They are coming home with your child each Friday and need to be returned, empty, to school on Monday morning. This week's folder has a Computer Log in "card" (really, a strip of yellow paper with all of your child's login information). Please put it in a safe spot, preferably near the electronic device they'll be using at home.
Please make sure your child has:
- been bringing their binder to and from school EVERY day
- turned in their t-shirt order form with $5 enclosed by next Friday, 9/25
- logged into their Pearson Math account from home and made sure they can access videos
- been neatly filling out their planner and showing it to you nightly
- sharp pencils every day
1st 100 Frye Words
This week students were pre-assessed on their ability to accurately spell 100 common sight words. A link to these words for practice throughout the marking period can be found below:
This is a great way for your child to practice their spelling so that by the end of the marking period, when they are reassessed, they can show a lot of growth!
I will be sending home the list of words to practice in next week's Friday Folder.
On that note, you can check the Weekly Reminder page at any time to see what homework has been assigned and the reminders that have been given. The link is located at the bottom of our newsletter.
