Week of November 19, 2018

I hope that everyone is enjoying this extra time with your family. I know that it has been awesome getting to spend these extra days off with my three little turkeys at home. 

Math – We finished Chapter 7. Most kids brought home graded tests on Wednesday. If your child did not bring home a test, it is because he/she is still completing test corrections. Next week we begin Chapter 8: Apply Multiplication and Division. 

ELA – Last week we completed Unit 3. During Unit 3, the students learned all about nonfiction text features. We read “Stone Soup” and LOVED making our very own batch! 

Content – We are currently learning all about the history of Lancaster County. Students are working with a partner to create a poster and presentation about famous people from our county. 

Last week was a fun week in 3-B! We had our Harvest Party on Tuesday and spent Wednesday afternoon making “Friendship Mix” with our kindergarten buddies. 

Our Upcoming Week

Here are some important things to remember for this upcoming week:

  • If you signed up to bring in “Stone Soup” ingredients, please send them to school on Monday or Tuesday. THANK YOU! 
  • Tuesday is our class Harvest Party. Children may dress up like a farmer (wear flannel, cowboy and cowgirl hats/boots, etc.)
  • Wednesday is a 1:30 early dismissal day. There is no school Thursday-Monday. 
  • There is no spelling list for this week, but there will be math homework on Monday and Tuesday. 
  • Students should wear sneakers for PE tomorrow and bring library books on Wednesday.

I will leave you with some pictures from Ag in the Classroom last week. We had so much fun learning all about these adorable animals.

Math– Last week we wrapped up Chapter 6. This coming week we will begin Chapter 7, which continues to focus on multiplication and division. Make sure your child is practicing his/her facts at home. 

ELA – We are learning how to use text features as we read non-fiction passages. We are also continuing to practice skills that we have already learned: identifying the main idea, making inferences, etc. In grammar, we learned how to use possessive nouns to show ownership. 

Content -We learned about the stages of the water cycle. 

Spelling -The Lesson 11 list was sent home on Friday and will be tested this coming Thursday. 

The kids had so much fun shopping at the book fair! 

Week of October 29, 2018

I’m sorry for the late and brief blog post. It was a BUSY weekend of cheerleading competitions and soccer tournaments! 

I am really looking forward to seeing all of you this coming week!

Don’t forget that due to parent-teacher conferences, we have 1:30pm Early Dismissals Wednesday-Friday. Next week is also book fair week at LeTort. 

I will leave you with some pictures from last week in 3-B.
