Dear parents/guardians,

 

I hope you had a great weekend! :)
A few reminders:
  • Please check your child’s agenda nightly. This is your way of knowing what students are assigned to do for homework. STUDENTS are responsible for copying down homework correctly daily. Please sign to indicate that you have seen it and they have completed all necessary assignments. I will not check STAR binders daily so please encourage students to place parent notes in a place they will remember to turn them in. 
  • If there are any changes in your child's transportation, please bring a hand written note for I cannot guarantee that I will be able to check E-mail during the school day.

  • Please have your child bring earbugs/headphones to school if they have not done so already. As we begin to use the laptops, it is important that each student is able to listen to their own device.
  • Toys, including fidget spinners, are not permitted at school. According to the handbook, if toys are confiscated at school, parents must pick them up from the front office. Chapstick and other medications are not permitted at school without a note from a doctor.

They will need to complete the assignment for the correct date. This assignment should only be about 10 questions.

In science, we will continue our unit on Earth, moon and sun. We will be focusing on the characteristics and relationship between the Earth, moon and sun, phases of the moon, and other planets in the Solar System. Students will use OREOs to illustrate the phases of the moon. In addition, students will begin researching a planet for a project. They will complete the "Planet Report" and then create a model of their planet. I will announce the due date at a later time once we have begun and I can gauge how much time students will need to complete this task.

Weekly E-mail (08.27.17 - 09.01.17)  

Dear Parents,

 

 Welcome back! I hope that you have enjoyed your last weekend of summer vacation! It’s going to be a great year in third grade! 😊 Thank you to all of you who have joined the "Remind" group! 

 

A few reminders:

 

  • You child will be creating a "STAR" binder on the first day of school to help them with organization throughout the year. There is a sheet inside of the binder that explains what each section is to be used for. Please check your child’s agenda nightly. This is your way of knowing what students are assigned to do for homework. STUDENTS are responsible for copying down homework correctly daily. I will check student agendas this week so they can get into the habit of doing it on their own. Please sign to indicate that you have seen it and they have completed all necessary assignments. 

 

  • Homework will not be graded for accuracy, only for completion and following directions. However, in order to receive credit students will need to write in complete sentences, answer ALL questions, and show all work (math). 
  • If there are any changes in your child's transportation, please bring a hand written note for I cannot guarantee that I will be able to check E-mail during the school day. 

 

  • Toys, including fidget spinners, are not permitted at school.According to the handbook, if toys are confiscated at school, parents must pick them up from the front office. Chapstick and other medications are not permitted at school without a note from a doctor.

 

·      Late homework will NOT be accepted (lost, forgotten at home, forgotten at school, etc.)

 

 

Math: This week, we will be reviewing place value (to the thousands place) in order to prepare for our first unit: rounding.  Students will not receive their Gomath  workbook until next Monday. Students will each have their own workbook that they will work in during class and at home for homework. Please do not rip any pages out of the book. 

Math Homework:

 

Monday: NONE

Tuesday: Thousands, Hundreds, Tens and ones" Practice sheet

Wednesday: "Expanding numbers" practice page

Thursday: "Writing and Reading numbers up to 9,999" practice sheet page

 

Reading: We will be working on establishing our reading workshop procedures and expectations. In addition, students will learn how to choose a book that is "just right" for them from the classroom library. The school library will not be open until next week. Students will not be tested for their reading level for another few weeks.

 

Reading homework:

 

No reading homework this week! 

 

Word Study:

No spelling words this week! I will be giving a pre-assessment that will determine what spelling group students will be apart of, starting next week! 

 

Writing:

Students will learn the procedures and expectations of our writing workshop. 

 

Science/Social Studies

Students will be focusing on citizenship, specifically what it means to be a  "global" citizen. Students will work cooperatively with other students in order to create definitions for our global trait of the month: Inquirers.
