STUDENT OF THE WEEK
Each week we will have a student in the spotlight. That student will make a poster to tell about him/herself. The poster may include such information as hobbies, family members, vacations, friends, and favorite things. He/she can decorate this poster using photographs, drawings, etc. Many kids in the past have included a display of trophies, ribbons, stuffed animals, etc. .. Be creative and enjoy!
Week of September 9 – Knox
Week of September 16 - Maddex
Please remember to have your child study the list that comes home on Mondays. They need to make corrections on their Practice Test, have it signed and returned on Thursday.
We have been working on place value this week. We will continue this next week. The students worked on writing numbers in standard form, word form, and expanded form.
The students have been reading the book, How To Be Cool in the Third Grade. We have been focusing on character traits and stamina during reading time.
It is important that each student has a few pack of 3 X 3 Post-It notes on which to annotate.
We focused on making claims and backing them up with evidence.. One activity to help us with this was using the five senses to gather evidence to make a claim as to what was in each “mystery container.”
The students have been learning about St. Paul and how we can call on the Holy Spirit to guide us in making the right choice. We have also talked about September’s virtue of courage.
Please make sure your child has a composition book to use as their Writer’s Notebook.
During our study of immigration the students have read from their textbooks and heard a realistic fiction about an immigrant from Russia.
Please make sure you return all of the forms to school by next Monday, September 9th.
