Hello third grade families!  It was so great to see so many of you at Parent/Teacher Conferences and share all the wonderful things about your child.  If you were unable to attend and would like to meet, please send me an email and we will work out a time that works for you.  Please make sure to check Daily Homework Sheets to help your students stay on track for 4th quarter.

 

Planners:

I will be more strict on planners this quarter.  Students are to fill them out, take them home and have a parent initial on the bottom line of each day.  This will help them prepare for 4th grade and fulfill the expectations.

 

The weather is getting warmer but there are times that we are in the shade and wind, it gets chilly so please make sure to send your child with a coat daily.   I hope that you have a great week. If you would like to contact me, you may reach me at tskees@lovelandclassical.org  

 

Thank you,

Mrs. Skees

Good morning, 3rd Grade Families!

Morning Forum:  Our students will have reading groups on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week. Students will have their non-fiction reading day on Monday and will read individually on Friday.

Writing Skills: The students will have their spelling mastery quizzes this week and will apply learned spelling rules to complete charts in their English notebooks.

Reading Skills and Literature:  We will be continuing our unit on The Little House in the Big Woods. We will do most of our reading in class. The book is divided into three parts and there is a packet to correspond to each of the three parts. Students will complete these packets in class and it will assess comprehension of the text as well as give them a chance to look deeper into the vocabulary used. This week we are focusing on chapters 7-10 and will complete pages in our packet relating to homonyms, paragraph formation and dictionary usage.

Homework:  Read at least 30 minutes per night of the book of the students choice. Spelling sentences assigned Monday and due on Wednesday, 4/17.

Have a great week,

Sincerely,

Ms. Jessica Carlson

This week the students will convert between years and months and convert between weeks and days - both in compound units. They will complete a 'show what you know' covering time and begin a geometry unit. First, the students will learn about angles - right, acute, and obtuse. They will practice counting the angles in polygonal shapes and identifying which type of angles are present in a given shape. After that, they will begin learning about area and will determine the area of figures in square units. Thank you,

Science

I hope that your student has begun researching their Space Race topic.  Completed research on the topic is due next Monday for us to begin writing the report. Please, contact me if you are struggling to find age appropriate resources for your student to use. The CC’s are helping to schedule the presentations and those schedules should come out this week. Due to the nature of the assignment there will be very little flexibility in changing the schedule of presentations. Students will have a review sheet coming home Monday to help them  prepare for a test this Friday over what we have discussed in our astronomy unit. Please, look over that with your student and discuss the content with them so they can be prepared. Thank you for partnering with me and please, reach out if you have any questions.

Tonight's informational meeting has been cancelled.
Sign up for the May meeting.
