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!
