So apparently the lack of a Monday last week messed with me more than I thought. Routines all over the place were off. I didn't blog, I didn't send home spelling words...I'm sure there are at least 13 other things. ;)
Since I'm a week late, I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday week and 4 day week.
Here is what is going this week in 3rd grade!
Leader In Me- We are still learning about our first habit- "Be Proactive". This week we will discuss and plan how we can be proactive at home and at school.
Writing- We will learn about catchy beginnings for our narratives, the writing process, and hopefully begin writing our personal narratives.
Math- We have been working on patterns used to multiply. (If you haven't seen the tricks for 9's that we learned, ask your kiddo! They go beyond just the ol' finger trick for the 9's facts!)
I also put the math tests into mastery connect so you can see how your students did on the standards assessed. Remember that these standards are going to be assessed multiple times throughout the year so this is not the only chance they have to improve or get mastery. You may have to check your spam folder as some of the mastery connect emails automatically go into that.
Reading- We will be talking about asking deep and meaningful questions this week and starting to meet in our reading groups.
Since Mrs. Letterman was off a little last week, we are only on Week 2 for spelling. We will take our Week 2 test on Friday.
Social Studies- This week we will continue to learn about the regions of the United States.
Other Announcements and reminders:
*Fundraiser orders, money, and packets: Due Tomorrow! (Tuesday, Sept. 12)
Mrs. Letterman is a third grade teacher at Willard East. This is her 8th year in Willard, but her 10th year to teach third grade!
