A few notes:
-Friday is Literacy Day Parade. Your child can wear a costume of one of their favorite characters. (more in Language Arts) Third grade does not participate in the parade, but we will be in the hallway, watching the younger students parade by. If your child wants to bring in extra drinks and/or treats, that is fine. I will have some kind of bag for everyone.
Also, if your child has not paid their $85.00, please see the note that they have with them.
Language Arts: We are reading “The Tree House” all week. A test will be given on Friday. I will have the students take home their book to provide extra practice in reading the story, if that is needed. We will focus on vocabulary and summary.
We will be spending a great deal of time on Friday, simply reading to celebrate our Literacy Parade!! Your children are very excited about this!!
Homework: Your child’s homework will focus around a character of their choice. They have a “Character Web” with them. They should choose a character (any character from a story they have read is fine), put the name of the character in the center of the web. They should them give a few word description in each of the boxes. They can add additional boxes if they wish.
On the back of this web sheet, they should describe their character, using complete sentences and referring to the web words that they used. Your child should write no fewer than 6 sentences. The web and sentence sheet should be turned in on Friday. For extra credit, they can draw a picture of their character (what they might be wearing on Friday.) They do not have to write about the character they might be on Friday. Any character is fine, but it would be a nice connection if they choose to focus on one character.
Also, your child should be becoming familiar with the Home Journal Books that are circulating. We have a total of three books. Please remember to ask your child about this. They will have extra writing homework about every other week. Please encourage your child to read through these journals. Thanks.
Math: We are having a quiz today on Unit 2. (pop quiz!) Unit 3, lessons 1-4 will be completed. Please look for the parent letter and unit 3 lesson 1 homework tonight.
Social Studies: We are working in our Map Essentials Book this week. Focus- using a “key” when looking for information in a map.
Science: Building and reading thermometers -ask your child after Tuesday and Thursday!!
Art: Colors and Feelings. Working again with oil pastels, we will express ourselves in our own way. We will also do some extra Halloween art.
Spanish: Please remember to have your child read in Spanish for practice throught out the week.
Have a great week!
