Monthly News and Schedule


READING—At home, be sure to read, read--we have to work together to get reading levels where they should be for 3rd grade!  Students should be at level L/M at this time.  Online, do ASSIGNMENTS on RAZ kids.  I am monitoring reading progress and this will be a grade.  In school, we are learning to prove answers by finding evidence in the text.  Also, we'll be summarizing, inferring, and using context clues.  We'll be reviewing synonyms/antonyms and reference materials.

WORD STUDY/SPELLING--Word lists go along with our HD word study.  We do 3 activities during the week and have TESTS ON THURSDAYS.  Some children may need to study words at home if they are having trouble with spelling. 

WRITING—We are writing our names in cursive! Any help you can do at home to improve handwriting is appreciated!  We are writing five-sentence paragraphs, poetry and learning about contractions.

MATH—BE SURE YOUR CHILD IS DOING ST MATH.  Students should be at least 40% done by now.  This will count towards their grade.  We will be studying calendar skills, probability, and graphing.

SOCIAL STUDIES—We will be studying Economics.  Watch out for a note coming about a special Barter Day!

SCIENCE--We are studying plant uses.
