Please read the NEWSLETTER to see what is coming up this week in third grade.
The culture project is due tomorrow. Your champion’s research is at school but they are encouraged to bring additional information they may have found to combine them for their presentation. The creation is due tomorrow, 9/25/17. This creation is the choice of the champion but the list on the handout offers some ideas if needed. I know several of them have great ideas prepared and are very excited to present!
Early release Friday-first session of Teach and Learn. Can’t wait to see what they have prepared to share with us! They have been very interested in this so I think it will be really awesome!
Thank you all for being considerate regarding illness. I know it is hard to stay home and make last minute plans when your champion becomes ill but we share our supplies, space, and air so we are always at risk of spreading illness. Please continue to check for head lice (treat hair and home prior to returning to school. We have a no-nit or lice school policy) because we share spaces for groups and investments and have carpet and cushions and rugs in our cozy areas. If you find lice, please let me know so I can take action at school too and hopefully avoid a spread. If your child has fever or has vomited prior to school, please do not send them to school. We have had several illnesses in our class and grade this year so please also keep talking to your champions about washing their hands and making healthy choices in the restroom and before and after eating. If your champion needs to bring cough drops to school, they must be given to me and I will put them in a safe spot for your champion to access them as they need them.
Conferences have been going well, I look forward to meeting with each family.
Progress reports reflect the math assessment from last week. This score increased or decreased your champion’s grade. We are working through corrections in class and we will have another math assessment after break which will be an opportunity for your champion to show understanding of these concepts again. When we finish corrections, I will send home the tests so you can see where the errors were made and their corrections so you can help them continue practicing.
TWO XtraMath addition certificates have been earned!! Keep it up guys! I’m excited to hang them up and show them off!
Thanks for your time, see you tomorrow.
Secret Code: Molly had 233 stickers and Jamal had 124 stickers. They combined their stickers hoping they would have 500 stickers. Do they have 500 stickers? If not, how many more do they need? Show me what you know! 🙂
