Thank you for all the birthday wishes this past Friday for my birthday! The children were very sweet and I felt pretty special (and old).
This Friday (March 31) we will be having a read-in! Bring a beach towel and a buddy (small stuffed animal). Students can wear PJs and/or comfy clothes.
The MACUL conference I attended at Cobo Hall last week was so educational and exciting! I’m hoping to try a few new ideas out before the end of the year! Thank you so much PTA!
We are half way through Charlotte’s Web. This is a classic story and the children love the facts that Fern (the little girl) can speak to the animals on the farm. We will be comparing this book to the movie once it had been completed. We will continue reading both fiction and non-fiction texts during independent reading.
As part of "March is Reading Month" we had a guest reader! Mr. Paddock is the principal of Sarah Banks Middle School. And, last Friday was a word game day. It was a lot of fun!
In writing, the students have been practicing how to restate and have proper punctuation, spelling etc. Soon, we will be working with informational writing but in the form of persuasive writing.
UNIT 6 mostly pertains to learning/reviewing more operations to help build fact fluency and use multiple strategies to solve multi-step/multi-operation problems. Click HERE for the parent note to learn more and get home-link answers.
Homework is given every Tuesday and Thursday. Each home-link is a review of a concept the students have learned in class. We encourage parents to help with the home-links as well as ask the students questions.
Last week the scientist explored condensation and evaporation. We are wrapping up this unit. The study materials went home last week. The review is due Monday, March 27th. We will go over the material in class as well as play a KAHOOT!
The BA is scheduled for Thursday, March 30th.
Unit 3 on Michigan History is intense with a lot of information. We have moved onto how Michigan became a state. Ask your 3rd grader about the Boy Governor, Stevens T. Mason! The students have a lot of material in their MI Studies pockets of their binders. Any time is a good time to review and go over material again.
