Dear Parents,

Thank you for joining us for Third Grade parent Night. We hope it was informative and you left feel knowledgeable about Third Grade expectations and requirements for progression to Fourth Grade.

Next week is Fall Break. Your students received a “Fall Break Challenge” to complete if they choose. It consists of reading 20 minutes each week night (like their normal Reading homework) and writing a short summary about their reading for the day. There is also a Math Mystery Grid picture to complete. If students complete this packet over break, they will receive a special reward when they return to school. Enjoy Thanksgiving and time with family and friends! 

When students return on December 1, we will be continuing Unit 3 in Language Arts. Our skills will be: Main Idea and Details, Summarize, expository nonfiction, future tense verbs, and prefixes. We are continuing to work on writing paragraph responses to correspond with our current learning.

We are continuing our unit on Geography and maps.  We are currently learning about the Regions of the United States. Your child is making a flip book for each region. They will need to identify the 5 regions for a test on Friday, December 5.

In math, we are working on the multiples of 7 (testing 1 minute 30 seconds on Friday). We are finishing Chapter 7: Division Facts and Strategies.  The next chapter we start is Fractions.

Thanks for sending in your Box Tops for Education! Every little bit adds up!

Remember next week is FALL BREAK!  I hope you have a special holiday time with your friends and family and enjoy a Happy Thanksgiving. When students return to school it will be December!  Wow! 

Classroom donations needed: treasure box trinkets, small toys, fun pencils, and stickers - THANK YOU!

Mrs. Shannon Cree
