WHAT’S UP IN 3RD GRADE?
“AN ELEPHANT NEVER
FORGETS” REMINDER…
Welcome back, I hope everyone had a
wonderful winter break. I’d like to begin
by thanking parents for their extremely
generous gifts. There aren’t enough
words to express how grateful I am for
being made to feel so appreciated.
In Reading we have been learning to
read like researchers. Students are
asking questions and learning about
specific animals and habitats. In writing,
we are continuing to write to inform by
writing short reports about our animals.
In science we have wrapped up our animals
and habitats unit and are starting to look
at Simple Machines. In math we are
finished up multiplication and division and
are now studying graphing.
DRAs started this week and selected
students will be tested on their reading
progress during the month of January.
The end of the quarter is approaching
quickly. Report cards will be coming home
at the beginning of February. If you have
any questions or concerns about your
child’s progress please contact me.
1. As the 2nd quarter comes to a close,
please check with your child to make sure
their school supplies are replenished.
