Writing:

 

Students will continue learning the writing expectations for 3rd grade (punctuation, capitalization, 7 word sentences, etc.) Also, they will have journal writing prompts throughout the week. In addition, students will explore a website www.freerice.com that allows students to donate food (rice) by answering grammar and other ELA questions correctly!! :)    

 

Science/Social Studies

Students will be focusing on citizenship and what it means to be "global." Students will continue to work cooperatively with other students in order to create definitions for our monthly global traits (replacing character of the month). In addition, we will begin our government unit. This week, students will explore the responsibilities of a citizen and the duties of the legislative branch.

Weekly Announcement (08.29.16 - 09.02.16)  

Dear Parents,

 

  I hope that you have had a fantastic final weekend of summer vacation! It was so nice meeting all of you at Orientation this past Thursday! I'm looking forward to getting to know you and your students better as the year goes on. Throughout the year, I will send a weekly E-mail the weekend beforehand filled with information such as what we will be covering in class, homework, tests, important dates and more!

 

On the first day of school we will be putting together a S.T.A.R binder. This binder will help students stay organized throughout the year. There will be a paper inside of the binder that explains each section. STUDENTS WILL HAVE HOMEWORK THE FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL so please check their agenda nightly. In addition, we will be labeling all journals and folders so please make sure that students have at least 6 journals and at least 6 folders.

 

A few reminders:

  • Check your child’s agenda nightly. This is your way of knowing what students are supposed to do for homework. STUDENTS are responsible for copying down homework correctly daily. I will check students' agendas the first week or so of school 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. However, in order to receive credit students will need to write in complete sentences, answer ALL questions and show all work (math).
  • Late homework will NOT be accepted (lost, forgotten at home, forgotten at school, etc.)
 

Math: In math, we will be reviewing place value from second grade in order to prepare of our first chapter in the Gomath workbook (rounding). Students will be focusing on how to compare numbers and round numbers to the nearest ten and hundred. THERE WILL BE NO MATH HOMEWORK THE FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL.

 

Reading: Students will not be tested for their reading level for another few weeks, so as a class we will be reading Lily and Ms. Liberty, a historical fiction novel. I will read the book aloud with the students and model how to answer the questions that go along with the text. Students will be responsible for re-reading the chapter and answering the questions that go along with it for homework. STUDENTS MUST ANSWER THE QUESTIONS IN COMPLETE SENTENCES IN ORDER TO RECEIVE CREDIT. Students will answer the first question in class as an example. For example: Who is the main character? The main character in the novel is Lily.

Reading homework:

Tuesday: Reread Chapter 1 and answer questions

Wednesday: Reread Chapter 2 and answer questions

Thursday: Reread Chapter 3 and answer questions

Students are responsible for knowing which words they will be tested on!!
