The 3rd Grade News Sept. 6, 2011
We would like to thank all of the parents who came to Teachers and Take-0ut. We will have more information on parent teacher conferences in the coming weeks.
Thursday night at 6:00 your child will be performing at our 3rd and 4th grade music program. Please have your child show up around 5:45.
Book fair opened last Friday and will run until this Friday. The book fair will be open at 5:00 on Thursday if you want to shop before the music program. It will also be open after the music program.
We started MAP testing today. We will also take MAP tests on Thursday and Friday. As you know these tests are very important because we structure our teaching to your child’s individual needs. In the next week or two your child will probably come home and talk about MIND time. MIND time is a time when we work on your child’s individual needs and what he or she will need to be a successful student and make gains on his or her MAP tests.
Make sure to sign your child’s agenda every night.
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 our classroom libraries.
Please remember to visit our blog at superteacher1.blogspot.com. I am still working on updating the blog, but there are several sites that your child can explore.
• Your child can take AR test every morning between 7:30 and 7:55. We do not have a lot of down time during the day to take tests, so please remind them in the mornings to take some tests.
