The 3rd Grade News Sept. 19, 2011
Parent teacher conferences are tentatively scheduled for the week before fall break. More information will be sent out as we get closer to the date.
Math: We are working on a new method for subtraction.
Science: We are continuing to study electricity. I hope your children have been discussing all the fun activities they are working on at school.
Language Arts: We are working on different types of punctuation.
Reading: In the red group, we are continuing to read “Charlotte’s Web.” In the blue group, we are reading “The Tree House” and working on words that contain r-controlled vowels.
• Please remember to visit our blog at superteacher1.blogspot.com
• I am giving star ups for students who go home and spend some time on IXL.com.
• Your child can also access compass from the blog.
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 make sure they bring our classroom library books back to school each day.
• 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.
