Week #35 in Review!

CLASSROOM NEWS
Tuesday, May 31st I will be in the building but there will be a guest teacher in the room so that I can assess the students’ reading growth.  This is a new testing date due to a substitute shortage last week. The results will be marked on the final report card.

Loon Lake also had another Play Day on Mary 26th.  For part of the morning and the afternoon, the students played! I observed sharing, cooperation, problem solving, creativity, acting, supportive classmates, singing, laughing, and so much more!  Another success!

Field Day is this Friday, June 3rd!  Please have your 3rd grader wear his/her YELLOW t-shirt they received at the beginning of the year!

LANGUAGE ARTS
In class we are doing an author study about Beverly Clearly. I am reading Ramona Quimby, Age 8 to the class aloud.  Beverly Cleary is a well-loved author who has written books such as the Ramona Series, The Mouse and the Motorcycle, Dear Mr. Henshaw and many others! Each student got to select one of her books as a final assigned reading.  The children have until June 10th to complete the book and a comprehension task that involves character traits.



We are planning a Pen Pal Meet & Greet with our third grade Pen Pals from Wixom Elementary for Wednesday, June 1st.  The Wixom students will be coming to visit Loon Lake Elementary School after lunch and we will celebrate a year of writing and making new friendships!

Over the last few weeks the students will be writing focusing on creative writing pieces that use all of the types of writing they’ve learned this year.  They get a little more room to explore and use their creativity in writing. 

MATH
The 3rd graders finished i-Ready testing and the took the unit Unit 7 test on fractions and measurement last week.
