Week 3

Hello!

We are off to a great start this week! Below you will find the spelling words for this week. I have bumped the words up to 20 so students are able to practice with sight words. These words will be relatively easy to start with and get more difficult as we go along. Please make sure to practice spelling words every day!

Also, make sure students are reading each night. I have now bumped up the time to 6 minutes to build reading stamina.

Let me know if you have any questions about homework or classroom assignments. I am here to help 🙂

Blessings!

Mrs. Baldwin

Week 2

Hello!

I am excited to be working with you and your child this year as we shape up for success! Here you can find any missing work that your child may have left at school. I cannot put the math page on the website due to copyright reasons so please inform me if your child continuously leaves it at school and that is why it is not being completed.

I have attached a blank reading log that you can always print off should your child ever forget it at school. I have also put the spelling list for the week in the blog post. Remember, spelling groups will start next week so spelling words will be the same this week. Thank you!

Blessings!

Week 37

Dear Parents

We are coming down to the last few weeks of school! This week we are going to be focusing on test taking skills as we are quickly approaching our second grade benchmark testing. We will be testing on May 17, 18, and 19. Please do your best to have your child at school on those days as that is the week right before school is out for the summer. The following week we will be doing fun end of the year activities so I don’t want your child to miss out!

This week we will not have a spelling test as we will be spending a lot of time preparing for benchmark testing. We do still have math homework and reading logs. If your child has any extra homework passes, they will want to use them up soon!

I hope that everyone has a great week. 13 DAYS TO GO!

Blessings!

Mrs. Baldwin

Week 36?

Dear Parents

So all of my spelling assignments for the week say Week 35…apparently I don’t know which week it is anymore haha. They should say week 36, but they are still the current lists and assignments.

I was not at school today so if your child did not bring home his/her spelling journal, that may be the reason. I have put the list and spelling homework below. I have also attached the reading log. If for some reason your child does not have a reading log, you can always print one from the blog and change the dates 🙂

This week is SOL testing for the 3rd grade students. Please make sure to talk to your child about the importance of being extra quiet in the halls during testing. 2nd grade teachers will be proctoring the exams for the 3rd grade teachers so my aide will be in the classroom during the morning on May 4 – 5 and May 11. I will be leaving the classroom at 8:30 so if your child normally comes after that time, please remind him/her to give any notes to my aide. If you have a note that you would like me to see that day, it is best to email me about it. If you have any questions about this, please contact me.

I hope that everyone has a great week!

Week 35

Hello, All!

With the copy machine still on strike, I am putting my newsletters online. I did send home a reading log this week though. Please continue working with your child on reading skills. The math homework for this week is pages 63 and 64. If your child did not bring this home, please email me and let me know. By this point in the year, students need to be able to take out their own homework and bring home their mail. I do not remind them in class to do this every day as being organized with school work is a skill students need to master in third grade.

This week we are going to be focusing on STAR testing for reading and math and I will be assessing everyone’s reading level. Please remind students that during testing times, it is important to be respectful and quiet to help their peers focus on doing their best.

In math we are continuing to work on counting money. In reading we are working on drawing conclusions. In science we are continuing our unit on plants. There will be no spelling this week due to field day on Thursday and our field trip on Friday.

I hope everyone has a great week!
