Classroom Happenings 4/8/19

Hi Families! I hope you had a wonderful time enjoying time together over spring break. With only nine weeks left of school, we will be working very hard to complete everything to make sure your students are ready for the fourth grade. We will be taking the M-Step on Tuesday, April 30 and Thursday, May 2. Wednesday and Friday will be make-up days for kids who may need extra time. Please avoid making any appointments on these days.

Math: We will finish up unit 6 this week and test on the unit next week. If there is any time available in your schedule to practice a few perimeter and area problems that would be so helpful to your child. Below is a link to a great site your child can do some practice problems on. Area and perimeter are listed under geometric measurement.

https://www.ixl.com/math/grade-3

Writing: We will be starting the process of writing biographies. First, we will learn how to take notes while we read a biography. Next, we will learn how to use those notes and write our own version of a biography about the person we have chosen to write about.

Spelling: We will not have a spelling unit this week because we will be using that time to work on answering and typing constructed response questions based on articles we will read. Yes, the kids will have to do similar tasks on the M-Step.

Social Studies: We will be starting our Michigan government unit this week.

Reading: We will be reading and taking notes about the person whom we have chosen to write a biography for.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. It is best to contact me via email. I check that frequently, so will be able to respond in a more timely manner. nflory@hpseagles.net

It seems that spring is here to stay. Yahoo! The sunshine and warmth were welcomed. Just a reminder that Friday is our last early release day. The kids will be dismissed at 12:15. My mom’s surgery went well. She is recovering in Minnesota with my dad and thank goodness the correct jaw. 

MathPlease have your child continue to practice facts on Mobymax every day for 5 minutes. We are continuing to review and quiz on all of the math areas we have covered this year. 

Writing:  The biography final drafts are underway and should be completed this week. A note will come home next week explaining the work that will need to be done to prepare your child for the Biography Museum we will be having on Monday, June 4.

Spelling: Unit 34 will focus on compound words such as: teaspoon, rattlesnake, watermellon

  

 This will be our last spelling unit. You can find your child’s word list on Spelling City:https: //www.spellingcity.com/users/MrsFlory207

Social Studies:  Thank you for helping your child study for the CDV test. They all did well! Social studies is now complete for the year. 

Science: The next science unit is WEATHER. We will take a look at clouds, winds, and types of severe weather. This is a pilot for science this year so there will not be any tests. 

Reading: Our final reading unit will be a social issues unit. The kids will be reading a chapter book called “The Jacket” and working through a packet that will show them how we think and act has an effect on the people we come in contact with every day. 

Have the Best Week Ever,

Mrs. Flory

We will begin Unit 7 (Fractions) this week. We will start by just understanding that a fraction is part of a whole and then move on to fraction chains, equivalent fractions and comparing fractions. Certainly, a lot to take in for these kiddos. Any help you can give at home with homework would be appreciated. 

Writing:  We will begin our research writing unit this week. The kids will be choosing one of the biographies we have been reading, taking notes on the person’s childhood, young adult, and later years and then be writing their own biography of that person. 

Spelling: Unit 29  includes long O and short O words spelled like the following: 

coin, toy,  now,  pound. You can find your child’s word list on Spelling City:
