The 3rd Grade News August 22, 2011
I want to thank you all for the smooth start of the year. I have been doing this for 13 years and I have to say this has been the best start I’ve ever had. Your children are working hard and things are going great. As long as they keep working hard I will stick with just 15 minutes a night of reading. We occasionally will have a few worksheets a week.
We have a math test tomorrow over rounding to the nearest 10 and 100. They have been working really hard in class and I can’t wait to see how they do.
We also have a science test tomorrow over static electricity. I hope your child has been coming home and talking about the experiments we have been doing.
Please try to turn in any field trip money by the end of the month.
If you can afford to send any packaged candy, I would greatly appreciate it.
Make sure to sign your child’s agenda every night.
Aug. 30th is Teachers and Takeout
Sept. 2nd starts the book fair.
In math we are going to continue with place value.
In science we are going to start a unit on magnets.
The only homework I am requiring is that your child read something for at least 15 minutes a night. If your child does not have books at home they may read their library book or check out a book from my classroom library.
