Week #17 in Review!

CLASSROOM NEWS
Last week was awesome!  Everyone got back into the routine and did an great job representing Loon Lake during our field trip to Lansing last Friday.  I will be sending out a slide show later this week with all the photos I took on the field trip.


Congratulations to Lincoln S. who was awarded the PBIS award for being the most resilient student for the month of December!


Thank you for all of you who sent in Lysol Wipes and foaming soap.  We really go through these items quickly because we are diligent hand washers and like to keep surfaces clean.  So, any time you can please feel free to send in a canister of wipes or foaming hand soap.
 Thank you, thank you!

On Thursday, January 14 at 6:00 pm, Loon Lake will be hosting the 2nd annual family game night. Last year, one of the biggest hits was playing Pictionary on the new interactive boards. Join us for some family fun!

LANGUAGE ARTS
Our book clubs will be focusing on non-fiction texts for this next round of reading.  Looking at nonfiction text features and understanding the differences between nonfiction and other types of written texts. 
 

In writing the students will be learning how to use a more focused approach to a topic and really zero-in on specific details.  They will continue to use prior knowledge to help guide them while researching and writing.
 







MATH
Unit 4 is all about geometry and measurement.  Click HERE for the Parent Letter that explains more AND has answers to the Home Links!

The third graders also had an opportunity to use the Chromebooks to work on Moby Max and X-TRA Math skills this week.


SCIENCE
The science BA is scheduled for Wednesday, January 13th.  The third graders brought home study materials.  I will be going over this review in class with the students.  Students had some time in class but most was to be completed over the past week at home in order to study.  
The study guide is due the 13th.

MICHIGAN STUDIES

We began Unit 3 on the History of Michigan.  Ask your third grader what a historian is and what questions they often ask.
