  • This newsletter is written for the coming week of December 5th.

      Reading Workshop:   This past week, we read some short stories and books.  With those stories, we kept track of what the main characters said and did to help us develop theories about them and in turn learn more about the characters.   We also started reading mystery books.  We are learning how a mystery book works.  We will be doing more with mysteries next week.  

    Stamina - Reading stamina is so important.  We are still working on getting the kids to read 30 min. at a time.  This will help as the students start testing later this year.  

    Seesaw - I have sent a link out to you to connect with us on Seesaw.  When you view your child's work, just keep in mind that much of it is first drafts and I am having them send it to me to look over.  Much of the writing that is put on Seesaw, I have them send to me so that I can check their progress and know where I can help them improve.  

    Clever:  Clever can be accessed on any device at home.  Go to the Clever website on any device.  Then log in as student and scan the QR Code.  They will have access to everything on Clever then.  All of the websites below that I mention can be accessed through Clever.  

    Mobymax - Mobymax is a great place for students to get extra practice with phonics patterns, sight words, lang. and reading skills.  There is also test prep practice they can do.  Mobymax can be accessed through Clever.   

    Raz Kids - This app is on Clever.  It is a great place for students to do some reading at their own level.  

    Writing workshop:     This week we are learning how to write an informational essay using a prompt.   We are doing one about rocks together.  Next week we will finish this prompt and start another one about penguins.  The students will do this one more on their own.  

    Word work:   The next few weeks the focus will be on different prefixes and suffixes.

     Math:     This week we measured to the nearest 1/2 inch.  We also looked at polygons.  Next week will be about polygons and quadrilaterals.    

    Multiplication - Students should be studying their 2's, 5's, 10's, 3', 9's and squares at home.  They have fact triangles to help them study.

     Addition and Subtraction Facts:  The first few months we are going to put a lot of work into making sure we all know our addition and subtraction facts.  Moby max "fact fluency" is a good place to practice the facts.  There are also websites on my Clever page that students can use to help study their facts.  I will be giving an addition and subtraction test every Wed. 

    I Know it Math:  This is great website to practice all of our third grade skills.  It also has a link to other grade skills.  The link is on my Clever page under the category "Math Time Tests and Games."

    PARENTS, RAFFLE BASKETS ARE COMING BACK!! Early next week you will receive a letter in your child’s backpack that indicates the classroom BASKET THEME. Every classroom at Hazel Dell will enter their basket into the raffle at the P.T.O sponsored Hawks With Hearts Dance on February 10, 2023. In the past these baskets have been filled with amazing items, experiences and gifts of all kinds. If you are able we ask that you donate an item/experience that relates to your student's classroom THEME. Our theme is the Colts.  Everyone will have a chance to purchase tickets and enter to win these baskets at the dance! We know this is early, but we wanted to get the word out so you can hit up SALES over break! Thank you so much for your participation!

     Library:   The students will choose books on Fridays.  Students should have last week's books turned in every Friday.
     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.
     Clever, Sumdog, Epic, Prodigy and Mobymax:   Students have a yellow sheet that they will always keep in their homework folders.  This sheet has login cards and passwords on it.  Right now logins to Clever, Google Docs, Canvas, Sumdog, Epic and Prodigy are on the sheet.    Mobymax is also a great app for students to use to sharpen all skills.  The students have an automatic login to Mobymax through Clever.
