December 4th, 2017 – Character Counts!

Good Morning Families!

This week your child’s class will continue its march towards the end of the 2nd quarter.  We are in Unit 3, Week 3 of reading, which means your child will have a spelling list this week.  He/she will also have a Literacy Homework assignment coming home today.  Most kids are doing a great job returning those weekly assignments by Friday!  Thanks for your help at home in making sure they get done and turned in on time.

In Math we are still practicing addition and subtraction.  We delved into subtraction across zeros last week, which can always be challenging.  We also practiced several different strategies to solve problems.  Please know your child can use any strategy he/she chooses on their homework assignments.  As I tell the kids, we’re all trying to get to the same island when it comes to solving Math problems.  I don’t care if you swim, surf, boat or fly to that island…just get there!  🙂

Lastly, your child will have a “Bonus” homework assignment this week.  The 3rd graders are going to spend the next two weeks rotating from teacher to teacher at the end of the day to review the Six Pillars of Character.  In my room, I will review Citizenship.  I have a bonus homework assignment challenge that your child can choose to accept.  If they accept the challenge, they simply have to record good deeds they do at school, home and towards their friends.  So, if you see your child cleaning up their bedroom or taking out the trash without prompting, you can thank me later!  Ha!  🙂

Thanks for reading and have a great week!
