Hello Everyone, So far we are doing very well in all subjects. I am proud of my 3rd graders! Sorry for my absences last week; I had laryngitis and had no voice! Makes it difficult to teach! This week is Red Ribbon Week-Remind yourself to be good to your body! Stay healthy, stay strong! Here is what is going on for the week of Oct. 22-26 in our classroom: ~~~~~Reading and Language Arts~~~~~ We are continuing our theme of the arts. Our next story is What do Illustrators Do, an informational text. Our skills are: sequence, text features, prefixes and suffixes, and run on sentences. We will have our end of unit test on Sentences on Friday. Please review the study guide. ~~~~~Spelling~~~~~ Our spelling words this week focus on words with three letter clusters. The words are: three, scrap, street, spring, thrill, scream, strange, throw, string, scrape, spray, threw, strong, scratch. Our test will be on Friday in part dictated sentence form and part words. ~~~~~Math~~~~~ We are working on the fact families of the 8s and 9s. Keep learning our multiplication facts! Please practice Math Bags daily. Our test will be next week. ~~~~~Science~~~~~ We are finishing our chapter on Objects and Motion. We will have a vocab quiz on Monday and our test on Friday. Please review the study guide. ~~~~~Social Studies~~~~~ We are learning about life in the Early Colonies. Reminders: Don’t forget that the weather is starting to change. Please dress for the day by wearing a coat, hat, mittens, etc. Watch for our daily assignment notebooks. Watch for WOW folders on Wednesdays. Scheduled assignments and tests are tentative and are subject to change. Don’t forget to support our SCO! Please help our school by participating in our fundraisers, purchasing a school calendar or poster! There are awesome pictures of our kids! Email me for details how. Join the SCO's Remind page for instant news! Reassessment procedures for third grade: Reassessments will be made available for summative tasks. Students may do one retake for A, B, & Cs per quarter/per subject. Students will then receive the second grade. Students will also be allowed one retake for D and/or Fs. Students will receive the second grade. The new assessment guidelines allow for the lowest assessment grade to be a 50%, which is still failing (F). For example, if a student receives a 27% on an assessment, a 50% will be entered in the gradebook. A note will be sent home if a student will be taking a reassessment with the details such as the subject, when the reassessment is taking place, and tasks that need to be completed before the reassessment. The request for reassessment should be made within two days of receiving the graded assessment. Thank you for being so supportive of your children and our school! Any questions, concerns or happy thoughts, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks! Mrs. Wandersen
