Science/Social Studies

We had a great time making corn husk dolls and feeling like a Native American by only using our corn husks and hands.  It was hard at first, but once they got the hang of it, they began to create more.  Check out their pictures on See-Saw. 
We will be learning about rocks and the rock cycle for our next unit. 

Literacy

This week in literacy we will finish the first unit of Lucy Caulkins on becoming a reader.  We will read our leveled books in groups.  Our story works story will teach us how to look at how a character changes during a story and to write a short constructed response about that topic. 

Specials

  Here is our specials schedule for the following weeks:

news

Dear Parents:  We will be having our holiday party on Thursday, December 20th at 3:15.  The kiddos will be decorating graham cracker houses.  I sent out a signup by email. 





Homework

Please remember to check your child's planner each night and initial it stating that you checked his/her homework.  I had about six kiddos that forget their homework each day.  Thanks so much!

I changed the reading log to make it easier for your child to fill out and return the first of December.  When your child reads for 20 minutes a night, just have them fill in the symbol under the day on the calendar.  They should be reading 20 minutes about four times per week.  Some of the reading can be done on the weekends.  


I will also assign typing pal days.  Learning how to type will help the students with much of third grade and future grades.

The students will be assigned Reflex math Monday, Wednesday and typing pal on Tuesday and Thursdays.  

They may get on any of these programs as much as they like.  I would suggest doing reflex math more than twice a week.  This will help them to learn their multiplication facts.

Please check and sign their planners each night.  I have had quite a few kiddos saying that they forgot their homework.  I could use your help in making sure that your child has his/her homework in their backpack and their planner is signed. 


Here are the instructions for typing pal.  Tuesdays and Thursdays will be our typing pal homework days.  They can certainly do more if they choose.

Math

Mrs. Landgrave's Math class:  We will be working our way through module three,  but at a quicker pace.  I will have the students show me their learning after we teach the whole class lesson, by completing some of the practice problems.  I plan on incorporating some of the fourth-grade modules over this area, along with the teaching of higher multiplication computation and word problems.   Homework will depend on how quickly the kiddos fly through the lessons and where we need to fill in the gaps.  


Grade 3 Module 3: Multiplication and Division with Units of 0, 1, 6–9, and Multiples of 10

This 25-day module builds directly on students’ work with multiplication and division in Module 1. Module 3 extends the study of factors from 2, 3, 4, 5, and 10 to include all units from 0 to 10, as well as multiples of 10 within 100. Similar to the organization of Module 1, the introduction of new factors in Module 3 spreads across topics. This allows students to build fluency with facts involving a particular unit before moving on. The factors are sequenced to facilitate systematic instruction with increasingly sophisticated strategies and patterns.
