Congratulations to Kendall and Adam! They were chosen by their peers to represent our class as PAWSitive characters for the month of March for demonstrating citizenship. Way to go Kendall and Adam!!
We had a great week back from break! In reading, we worked on using multiple texts to practice with many of the standards and skills we have already learned. We focused on author’s message, key ideas and details, poetry, and vocabulary as we read about Clara Lemlich and Amelia Earhart! In math, we focused on problem solving with perimeter and took our mid module assessment. In social studies, we finished our work with global citizenship with a focus on how to help wildlife, the environment, and other people.
We need your help! Third Grade is going to begin collecting gently loved, clean stuffed animals for our spring carnival booth! Please send in any donations with your child or drop them in the office for third grade. THANK YOU!!
English/Language Arts: We will continue to review multiple standards across multiple texts this week! We will be focused on central message, lesson, theme, or moral and comparing and contrasting! Also, our practice will include using text features to find information. We will be reading Knots on a Counting Rope, Thunder Cake, City Homes and Underground Cities.
Math: This week, we will be diving deeper into perimeter and shapes and combining these with our knowledge of area. We will be focused on shapes with same area, different perimeter and same perimeter, different area. There is a lot of problem solving in our learning this week!
Science: Our focus for science is on how animals respond to changes in their environment.
FSA Testing: Monday, April 9th and Tuesday, April 10th are when we will be taking our FSA Reading. Testing will occur from 10-12 (the test is 80 minutes with a short break but this also includes time for directions). Typically, we ask for donations of snacks for after testing just to make sure all kids get a chance to have a snack and decompress after working so hard! If you are willing to donate snacks, we would love to have them! In the past, the best snacks have been fruit snacks, cheez-its, goldfish, and pretzels! We would greatly appreciate any donations!
Homework: On Friday, students received their spelling and math logs. They also need to read nightly and get their planners and calendars signed!
