Good Morning Families!
I hope your new year is off to a great start! I had a nice break, but I’m really ready to crank things up again. I missed your kids terribly! Seeing them walk in the room this morning really warmed my heart.
We will begin Unit 4 in both Math and Reading this week. You can expect a spelling list to come home each Monday for the next five weeks. We’ll also have Reading homework this week and each week during the entire 3rd quarter.
This week we will also start our Embryology unit in Science. On Wednesday, we’ll have a dozen chicken eggs delivered and placed in our incubator. Over the next three weeks we’ll learn all about how to care for them and help them develop into adorable little baby chicks! If all goes well, they will hatch around January 31st or February 1st. This is often the most memorable part of third grade and I’m so excited your child gets to partake this in this life cycle study!
One other item of note…you may hear your child discussing a change in his/her Reading or Math grouping. This is very typical, and nothing that should alarm you as a parent. The halfway point of the year is a time we often reevaluate groups and make a few changes to make sure your child is in an optimal place to learn. If I have any major concerns or questions I will contact you, but don’t worry if your child’s grouping changes in the next couple of weeks.
Thanks for reading and have a great week!
