August 28th, 2017 – Settling In

Good Morning Families!

We are have had an amazing first two weeks of school!  I’m not sure I’ve ever had a class that has settled into the routines of third grade as quickly as this group.  Very impressive, to say the least!

We are in Unit 1, Week 2 of reading this week, and the kids will bring home a practice spelling list for the week.  If you don’t see a list, remember you can click on the spelling tab of this site and find the words for the week.  We’ll continue to practice visualization, along with synonyms, antonyms and different kinds of sentences.

In Math we’ll continue practicing how to multiply.  We’ll introduce a few new numbers this week, including 10s, 9s and possibly 3s.  Any extra practice with Math facts at home is always helpful.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

August 21st, 2017 – Solar Eclipse Day!

Good Morning Families!

The Solar Eclipse Day has finally arrived!  I’m so excited for this amazing experience!  I hope we have great weather, and the kids have the chance to make a life-long memory.

This week we’ll begin Unit 1, Week 1 of our Wonders reading program.  That means we’ll have our first spelling test on Friday, and you can expect a study list to come home today.  Please remind your child to study a little bit each night, so he/she is ready for the test on Friday.

Hopefully you’ve had a chance to explore the class web site.  If you’re curious about Wonders, spelling lists, the Math Expressions curriculum, please click around on the tabs and see what your child will be working on in the coming weeks and months.

I have to say, we had a wonderful first week of school.  I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know your kids and I’m so excited for all the fun we’re going to have learning this year!

Thanks for reading, have a great week, and enjoy the eclipse!
