  • This newsletter is written for this past week March 18th and the coming week of April 8th.    

    No Journey's test this week. 

     Reading Workshop:  

    The week we come back from break, we will concentrate on presenting our Flat Stanley materials during reading time.  We will also be doing the second part of our nonfiction unit. 

    Writing workshop:

         We are going to be practicing writing written responses for reading and writing prompts over all genres.   

     Book Clubs:

    We have started to read chapter books in book clubs.  The students seem very excited to read these books.  Each time the students read I am going to have them focus on a different reading skill along with any words or phrases that they don't understand.  The discussions yesterday were very lively and strong.   
    The students are reading Mondays and Wednesdays and discussing Tuesdays and Thursdays. If the students do not get finished reading on Monday or Wednesday, then they are to bring their folder home and finish reading that night.  That way they can be ready to discuss the next day.  They can count that reading towards their 20 min. for the day.

    ILEARN Practice Tests: April 15-19

    ILEARN Test

    3rd Grade May 1-7   (3 days of ELA & 2 days of Math)

     More Homework – Please sign your child's reading log for them to turn in on Friday.  We have talked in class about how important it is to just read.  Just spending time reading will make students better readers.  The more they read they better they will get. We have also talked about how building a better vocabulary will help reading and testing.  We have engaged in more vocabulary activities this past week. 
    Wednesday early release - Early release every Wed. 2:55.   
    Transportation Changes - If you have any change in transportation, (i.e. - your child 
    normally rides the bus and is a car rider one day for whatever reason).  I need you to please send in a note with your child.  I will send this note to the office so that they are aware of the change.  
     Library -  Library week of April 8th is Monday. 
    Just a reminder that students can access any website we
    use in class on my webpage by going to educational websites.  
    Lesson friend is a great website for students to use for a variety
    of subjects.
