We will have a timed checkup over our 2s and 3s multiplication facts this Friday. There will be 60 facts to solve and your child will have 5 minutes. It is that time of year when we have to ensure that we are reaching fluency with our facts:)
We will have a timed multiplication facts checkup each Friday for the remainder of the year;). Friday, May 4th will be our 4s and 5s, Friday, May 11th will be our 6s and 7s, and Friday, May 18nd will be our 8s and 9s. Tomorrow a branches of government study guide will arrive home, and our summative assessment will be on Tuesday, May 1st. The study guide includes what our 3rd grade government standard encompasses, so if your child looks over this they will be just fine. We have covered everything extensively in class, so the children shouldn’t have to spend very much time reviewing.
If you have not returned the field trip permission for our Mercedes Benz trip on Monday, April 30th, please do so tomorrow. It will be here before you know it. There is also an Economics Day letter in your child’s blue folder today that thoroughly explains Economics Day. It is a third grade tradition and the children LOVE being merchants as they have a real world experience with supply and demand concepts. Please email me should you have any questions at all about Economics Day.
We have a new weekly behavior sheet that we will use for the remainder of the year that allows your child to participate in goal setting and self reflection:) This is a great opportunity for your child to reflect on choices and strategies for improvement.
Have a great week and THANK YOU so much for making our Milestone Completion Celebration such a fabulous success!!! We had lots of yummy, homemade treats to share, and the children and I are very grateful for your generosity!!!
