Good afternoon!

This week, we are:

Reading: Asking and answering questions to demonstrate understanding of a text. We are continuing our reading CAFE strategies while reading Because of Winn Dixie. Students will begin to go to Daily 5 centers in Reading Workshop!

Writing: organizing our narratives with paragraphs. We are still working on building up our writing stamina!

Language Arts: reviewing parts of speech, capitals in titles, types of nouns, and pronouns. This week’s spelling words come from Sort 3

Math: adding and subtracting fluently to 1000 using strategies, properties, and understanding of place value. Students received a copy of the 3rd Grade Math Roadmap containing math strategies for the remainder of the year. They can reference this page while doing classwork and homework in math. We are encouraging students to show their work and strategies. I was excited to see many students remembering strategies from 2nd grade! Continue to study those basic math facts!

Science; describing the physical attributes of rocks and minerals.

Important Information:

Spirit Night: Tomorrow night at Vinings Chikfila!

Weekly Math KWL: Math KWL word problem is due on Friday! Please have students hold onto it until Friday when we check it altogether as a class. Thanks to those families who put first things first by completing it this weekend! 🙂

Homework Policy: If there is  a family emergency causing your student to not complete their homework, please email Miss Nichols or Mrs. McLaughlin. Thank you for helping your student become independent and responsible!
