Curriculum Peek

Spelling/ Vocabulary- The pattern this week is the long 'u' vowel pattern-- u_e, ue, oo, and ew . The test will be on Friday. Students will receive a new vocabulary list this week about government. The final test for these words will be Friday, December 11.

Math- The students have now learned ALL multiplication facts and should continue to practice those at home for memorization. This week we will begin Topic 7 and learning about the meanings of division.

Social Studies and Reading- Students will learn how to read information from a website and cite evidence from the text they read. They will work in groups to learn about one portion of our government and create a presentation for this information. The activity will conclude with presentations to the whole class. Students will be using the website called Ben's Guide to gather their information.

International Festival

It is that time of year, where we need to start thinking about the 3rd Grade International Festival. You will be receiving quite a bit of information about this event over the next couple of weeks and throughout January.

Last Tuesday, your child brought home a page that asks about your family heritage. Please help your child fill this form out and return it to me by the end of the week. Your child will be researching the country that is filled out on this form.

We are having a parent planning meeting on December 11, 2015 at 11:10am. If you are interested in helping us plan the International Festival, and are able to attend this meeting, we would love to have you join us!
