Classroom News

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.  Enjoy the break!

Spelling- I will be sending a new list of words and a packet on Monday.  The words on the first page are your child's spelling words.  I have gone over the directions for each page with your child several times.  He or she should know how to complete the activities using the words on the front page.  The test will be on Friday.  The packet is due on Friday.

I attached the presentation from last night under Classroom Pages.  If you weren't able to be here,  it will fill you in on some of the things I shared.  If you were here, you will be able to access our daily schedule.

The students can bring a healthy snack and a water bottle to school each day. 


This week we focused on points, lines, line segments, and rays.  They also learned about parallel, perpendicular and intersecting lines.

Skills to practice:
*telling time on a analog clock (o'clock, to the 5 minutes, and to the minute)
*adding 2 digit and 3 digit numbers with and without regrouping (carrying)
*subtracting 2 digit numbers with and without regrouping (borrowing)

Reading and Writing

Reading- The students are working on making deeper predictions.  They are connecting their predictions to events in the story.

Writing- The students looked at the 3rd Grade Writing Checklist.  They wrote a small moment story to be graded using the checklist.

Free Write Notebook- The students will be using their Composition Books as a Free Writing Notebook.  They will be choosing what they want to write about in their book.  We brainstormed some ideas today. 


Your child should bring home his or her planner Monday-Thursday. The planner will help you know what is expected for homework.  I am asking that you sign your child's planner each time indicating that your child completed his or her homework.  There will not be homework over the weekend.  

Science/Social Studies

We have started our unit on Native Americans.  The students are learning about the Native Americans of the Northwest.  We are focusing on learning more about totem poles.
