STARS is looking for volunteers. If you can help in ANY way, please do so. I am very proud of all of the students for working so hard during IAR testing. Third graders and generally very nervous since it is their first experience with this type of test. They did great! While we are (hopefully) starting to see some warmer temperatures, please remember that students do go out for recess and need t be dressed appropriately for the weather. While it may feel like a heat wave compared to what we have had, students do need to be dressing appropriately for the weather.
All the kids write in their assignment notebooks daily. This is done to communicate assignments, reminders, etc. with you. Please go over your child’s assignment notebook and sign it each day. If you notice any materials not coming home, please notify me right away. We complete the assignment notebooks together and pack up materials together. If your child needs further assistance, I will arrange for them to check out with me each day.
Looking for fun, extra practice for your child at home? In class, the students have been introduced to Raz Kids (username mbussema0), XtraMath, Freckle, Prodigy, Edcite, Learning Farm and Typing.com. A brief description of what we will cover this week is below.
ELA--- This week we will be reading Stories of Migration. We will also be comparing adjectives. The spelling test and quiz for the story will be next week.
Math--- This week we will continue talking about perimeter and area. We will focus on same area, different perimeter. Students will also be working on a project in class on perimeter and area. We will spend some time reviewing and the test will be on Friday. Students should study math facts each night. If your child has not yet mastered all of their multiplication facts, each day they will take a 1-minute multiplication test. As they pass one, they will move on to the next. They will take multiplication tests in this order: 1, 2, 5, 10, 4, 11, 9, 3, 6, 7, 8, 12. Please check in with your child to see where they are.
Just as with multiplication, students will take a 1-minute division test each day until they have mastered them all. They will take division tests in this order: 1, 2, 10, 5, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12.
Once students have mastered both multiplication and division, they will begin taking rocket tests to review these facts. Science- We will wrap up our unit on life cycles this week. Hopefully your child has told you about the mealworms, caterpillars, and ladybugs in our room!
