As I stated previously, Library is no longer considered a special. Students will have the opportunity to check out books once a week. The entire school checks books out of the library on FRIDAYS. The Library schedule does not follow the A-E cycle like the rest of specials. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me or send me a note. Thanks!
Please note that I have created a new section that will contain the weekly curriculum updates. It is located below "Latest News."This is where I will explain what we will be working on each week. Thanks!
We are always in need of supplies. There was a supply wish list out at Curriculum Night, but I don't know if everyone saw it. Some of the supplies that our class could always use are listed below. Thank you!
Thank you so much to all of you who were able to attend Curriculum Night. I really enjoyed meeting you. While we didn't have a lot of time to communicate one on one, it was still nice to put a face to the initials in the planners. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to write me a note or email me at email@example.com. Have a wonderful weekend!
One parent suggested that I outline what aspects of the curriculum we will be working on in the upcoming week. What a wonderful suggestion!
Obviously, topics and schedules are subject to change. As of right now, our week includes:
Reading: We will read our first story in Reading Street titled "Boom Town," which tells the story of a girl who helps her family earn money during the gold rush by selling pies. The class will begin to explore weekly activities such as Write to Read, Boggle, Vocabulary, and Selection Test. They will also learn the test-taking strategies that are used in Grade 3
Writing: Students will begin to set up their Writer's Notebook, which is one of my favorite third grade activities. After we set them up, they will be allowed to bring them home and write at their leisure (in addition to classroom writing).
Math: We will be completing introductory lessons to multiplication by exploring arrays and equal grouping.
Telling time will also be reviewed this week.
Social Studies: We will begin to explore our SS book "Massachusetts: Our Home." If time permits, we will start creating our maps of Massachusetts.
Science: (will start next week)
Reminder: Book orders are due tomorrow, Friday, September 12. Thank you!
