Welcome to our class page!
Week of October 13-17, 2014
I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing Fall Break! I am excited to begin our second nine weeks of school. Folders and report cards will come home on Wednesday, October 15th. We will be sending home your child's first quarter benchmark tests for you to review, sign, and return. We will review and correct the tests as a class on Monday.
The 2nd quarter is another busy time for 3rd graders! We will continue with our ELA, Math, Science, and SS curriculum, and continue to practice informational writing and introduce opinion writing. Students will be working on keyboarding in related arts classes, as well. We are excited to begin this new quarter!
There is no homework packet this week. Students will receive spelling words, vocabulary boxes, and a math project on Monday. They will also receive a Science study guide this week. There may be other skills to practice for homework throughout the week. New AR goals will be set this week and students are encouraged to begin working toward his/her AR point and accuracy goals. All students are encouraged to begin studying multiplication facts!
