WOW! What a great week we have had in our classroom! The students are starting to get fully adjusted to third grade, and have made so much growth over the past month and a half. We have started our second unit in Reading, and have just completed Chapter 3 in Math. I can't believe we are already into multiplication! Our Social Studies unit on government and civics will also be wrapping up on Monday, and we will squeeze in one more Science unit before the end of the 1st nine weeks.
Conferences have been scheduled, and you all should have received an email confirming your day and time. I have completed a few conferences this week, and I am enjoying discussing your child and learning more about each of them. I look forward to continuing the rest of them over these next 2 weeks.
Soon you will be receiving our Buffalo Basket Auction letter. This is a great fundraiser, and not to mention a great opportunity to earn some PI! Please look for this letter within the next few weeks.
As always this is just a reminder: Please make sure you are checking your child's BEACH Binder every night. Take the papers in the KEEP AT HOME section out so that I can continue to send home their weekly papers. Also, please sign your child's agenda every night. This helps me make quick observations that you are monitoring your child's daily homework and behavior.
Please continue to check my teacher website weekly. Here you will get updates on classroom activities, important information, and documents that are updated and attached at the bottom of my page. Again, if you have any questions you would like to ask before the first day of school please email me at Samantha.Sheffield@tvcs.org
LOVE, Mrs. Sheffield
