I am so impressed by each and every third grader in this class. They are working hard and trying their best with everything that we do. Please pay careful attention to the upcoming schedule, as there are several important event in the coming weeks. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Math: We have been working hard on mastering subtraction. Our Chapter 3 test will be next week!
Reading: We read a biography about Ellen Ochoa. She was an astronaut. Ask your child to tell you what they learned about this amazing woman.
Writing: We are learning to use a dictionary, so that we can spell word correctly when we write. We can also use our dictionary to look up the meaning of unknown words when we read.
Science: This week we focused on the water cycle. Stay tuned for an exciting water cycle experiment at the beginning of next week.
Spelling: We have been practicing our Lesson 4 spelling words. Our lesson 4 test will be on Tuesday October 4th.
Grammar: We are practicing writing simple and compound sentences. We learned how to take two simple sentences and combine them together to make a compound sentence.
**This week we had our first Binkley Bucks Store! Ask your child to explain what they had to do in class to earn Binkley Bucks to spend at the store!**
Ask Your Child
What is a simple sentence? What is a compound sentence?
