End of Year FUN!

I cannot believe we are about to enter our last 8 days of school! This year has flown by! We have a lot of exciting events coming up for the end of the year!

 

Poetry Slam: We are excited to see all of you tomorrow morning at 11:15 am in the Learning Commons. Immediately following the Poetry Slam, we will head to lunch. We have to eat in our classrooms due to the Congressional Runoff Election, and voting will be taking place in the cafeteria.

 

Field Day/Pizza Party/Yearbooks: Field day will take place this Thursday, May 18th. Please have your child wear their green 3rd grade class shirt. Also,  your child should wear tennis shoes and pack a water bottle – a hat or sunglasses are optional. Our lunch time that day will be from 11:46-12:16. Third grade won a pizza party from California Pizza Kitchen for having the most participants at the Ridge Run. We will have our pizza party Thursday afternoon at 1:15 after Field Day. During this time, students will have a chance to sign yearbooks. Please have your child bring their yearbooks and a special pen from home.

 

End of Year Party: The party will take place on Monday, May 22nd at 8:30 am. Stay tuned for information regarding this event from our room reps.

 

Egg Drop Challenges: All donated recycled materials will be due on Thursday, May 18th. We will have our class egg drop challenge on May 22nd after our end of year party. The school-wide egg drop challenge will take place on Tuesday, May 23rd.

May is here!

We are busy in our last few weeks of third grade!

 

Science:– We will focus on basic information about heat, vocabulary, and different types of heat energy.

 

Writing:– We are focusing on poetry. Students will learn how to write a Haiku, Lowkus, Limerick, and Cinquain and will be displaying their poems in a book.

 

Math:– We are continuing to practice with multi-step word problems and polygons. Students will also collaborate with a peer to create their own multiplication or division games. Students will be taking their final Math Inventory assessment for the year.

 

Reading:– We will focus on reading informational texts through Storyworks. Students will be taking their final Reading Inventory assessment for the year.

 

Homework:

There will not be any assigned homework for the rest of the year. Please continue to encourage your child to practice their multiplication/division facts, as we will still be taking timed quizzes in class. Also, students can practice/review 3rd grade math skills on the DreamBox website (link under Math page on my blog). Nightly reading is also strongly encouraged, and I have been updating my Instagram page with great book selections.
