May 18th, 2020 – The Final Week

Hello Parents!

This week the kids will wrap up their third grade year!  In reading, they will practice poetry, and explore what makes them laugh.  There will be two very funny, bonus stories and activities posted on Tuesday and Thursday, in addition to the regular LPS lessons on Monday and Wednesday.  There will be no spelling list this week.

In math, the final two lessons will focus on polygons and quadrilaterals.  Both lessons will have sorting activities posted to help them apply what they have learned.  No extra items or printed materials will be needed.

In social studies, the kids have one more set of lessons for the week that focus on “Producers and Consumers.”

Thank you SO MUCH for making sure your child completes these final lessons to wrap up the year.

Portfolio Work

The kids have been assigned three bonus assignments this week that are part of their “School Days…” portfolio project.  When completed, I will print them and add them to their year end portfolio.  Please see that your child completes these, as they will prove to be great keepsakes to remember their third grade year.  I can’t wait for the kids to receive their memory books when we return to school!

Zoom Meetings

This week, there will be THREE Zoom Class Meetings!  (Code: 526-181-3917) I really hope everyone can join us on the following days and times to celebrate the end of the year.

Tuesday at 1:00:  Don’t miss the chance to watch the movie “Kicking and Screaming,” and learn the origin of, “Coffee is the Lifeblood that Drives the Dreams of Champions!”  🙂

Wednesday at 11:00:  Join ALL FIVE 3rd grade classes for a final Reading Rainbow Watch Party!

Thursday at 1:00:  Say, “I’ll see you next time,” to your classmates, as we take a trip down memory lane and watch the “School Days…” memories music videos for 2019-20!

Please don’t miss out!!!

“Schools Days…” Music Video Memories

On Thursday, the kids will watch their year in review in pictures, set to music.  We will reminisce with 7 or 8 sets of pictures, and celebrate all the fun we had!  When we return to school, the kids will receive not only their portfolio, but either a DVD or flash drive copy of all the music videos we’ll watch.  This project is a labor of love, and one I cannot imagine not sharing with the kids!

I will also email parents downloadable links to each of the videos.  That way you can can save them now, and rewatch whenever you please.  I will likely email these Thursday after our meeting, or perhaps on Friday.

LPS Daily Challenges, Lexia Reading and Dreambox Math

Good news!  The kids can keep practicing their skills over the summer!  LPS will continue to post weekly challenges on their web page.  Also, the Lexia reading program will be offered free through July 31st, and Dreambox math will be offered free through June 30th!

Thank you again for working so hard to help the kids finish strong and wrap up their school year.  I truly appreciate all you have done to make this trying time the best it can be!

Have a great last week!
