Week of May 22, 2017


 We have started practicing for the 3rd grade play!  Students are doing a great job so far!  Please remember to have them study their lines.  Costumes should be sent in ASAP if you have not done so already.



We are working on Lesson 25 this week. Students will be reading "Mountains: Surviving on Mount Everest" which is informational text about a 16 year old boy that climbs Mount Everest.

Our spelling list will focus on the suffixes -less and -ness.

In grammar, we will review possessive nouns and adverbs that compare.



We will continue working on Topic 15, "Liquid Volume and Mass", in which students will learn about customary and metric units of capacity.  We will be testing this topic on Thursday or Friday.


*Please continue to study multiplication facts as we will continue to take quizzes on all facts a few times per week. We are working our way towards being able to complete 100 problems in 7 minutes.




We are working on Unit 10 "Simple and Compound Machines".  In this unit, students will learn about simple and compound machines and how we use them in our daily life.  We will be creating our own simple machines in class.




*Please check Oncourse for your child's grades as tests are not usually sent home unless they need to be signed due to a lower grade.


*When tests are taken on ThinkCentral, you can log on as your child and view their tests online.
