Newsletter for the week of Sept 18 2017


Homework for the week of September 18, 2017

This is a short week of school.  Thursday is minimum day and dismissal is at 12:45.  This is also Free Dress Day.   There is no school on Friday, due to teacher professional development.  Since this is a short week, I am only giving the students six spelling words that are common pronouns:  it, you, we, they, she, and he.  All students have the same words.

There are several strategies that will help them learn their spelling words.  Please have them study each evening. Their spelling tests are always on Friday unless noted in this weekly letter. They are tested on 10 spelling words. 

“Fry” words are on their spelling list handed out on Mondays. Fry words are sight words that third graders need to know. They must know how to read, use, and spell these. Every other month I test them on twenty of these words. They are not tested weekly. I will provide five each week for them to learn.

Students should study math for at least 10 minutes each day.  There is nothing to turn in for this.  They should study facts for the numbers 1 and 2.  For example, 2X1=2 all the way to 2X10=20 and the related division facts.  Third graders need to know the math facts for the school wide goal this year!

Your child has a planner now.  They bring it home daily to be signed by you.  This goes back and forth for communication between home and school.  The only day they don’t have to take it home is on Friday.

Monday- Pronoun paper, study spelling words, math facts, read 20 minutes

Tuesday- Math handout, study spelling words, math facts, read 20 minutes

Wednesday- Math handout, study spelling words, math facts, read 20 minutes

Thursday-Turn in homework, dismissal 12:45

Friday- No School, reading log is due in on Monday (for weekend entries) and read 20 minutes

Hoping for a Great Week!

Homework for the week of May 1, 2017

 



n  The students started the state test last week. 

They will do parts of it for the next couple weeks.  Please have your child to school on time.  Please make sure they get a good night sleep and breakfast in the morning. This will help them concentrate, so they can do their best and show what they have learned!

n  Please have your child review their old Math unit tests. Help them fix the ones they got wrong. 

Also, they can take practice tests on the Sage Portal website as a guest.


Thank you to all the parents who volunteered for our field trip for this Thursday.  We can only take 2 volunteers, so by the luck of the draw, Mrs. Hall and Mrs. Cook’s names were selected.  We will be outside, so please have your child dress for the weather!!
