Dear Families,

It really feels like Spring with these warmer days, rains and pollen…and our break coming up!

Highlights this week include picture day on Tuesday, our AR celebration on Wednesday, and Celebration of the Arts on Friday!

Homework, again, is spelling and test review. The review is glued into the HRJ. I will also send home “time” homework.

What we’re learning this week…

  • Writing-  Opinion
  • Grammar- Review
  • Reading– Compare and contrast Wump World and The Lorax
  • Math– Elapsed time, review
  • Social Studies– Cesar Chavez
  • Read Aloud– Wonder

Congratulations to Mia for a 2nd place finish in the Cobb County Science Olympiad! She designed and tested a paper rocket. We are so proud of her!

I hope you all have a restful and restorative break doing the things you like to do best!

Fondly,

Mrs. Pennington

Happy Spring! The Leprechaun traps, as ingenious as they are, failed to trap the little rascal! He made a mess of our room and left little green footprints all over, but unfortunately it’s another year of near misses. Oh well, there’s always next year!

Be on the look out for report cards on Thursday. I have a wedding in Texas and will be out Thursday and Friday, but the sub will send them home. Target kids will get them on Friday.

Please return the registration form asap this week. I have a treat for each child who turns it in promptly.

The other highlights of the week include the FABULOUS Kincaid musical, Zaxby’s Night, and the SPLOST vote on Tuesday.

Homework Notes ~ Until the Milestone test in late April, 3rd grade will not have the usual HRJ homework. We’ll still have spelling, and the rest will be test review (both of which will be glued into the HRJ). I’ll send home additional math as is needed. I hope this isn’t too confusing.

What we’re learning this week…

  • Writing-  Preparing a writing piece to publish
  • Grammar- Conjunctions
  • Reading– Compare and contrast character, theme
  • Math– 2-step problem solving, fractions
  • Social Studies– Conservation & Pollution
  • Read Aloud– Bunnicula

Have a great week!

Fondly,

Mrs. Pennington
