                                          HELLO and WELCOME TO 3-2!!

I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather on the weekend. I enjoyed meeting all the parents who came to Open School Night. I look forward to working with you this year to make your child a happy and successful 3rd grader! We have a full week ahead. We started the times tables and the class copied the 2x tables on cards so they can practice like flash cards. We will continue with multiplication and learn about the concept of division in math and have a test Friday. We will continue force, mass, and friction in science and do a little experiment on force. In religion, we will finish learning about Jesus as a child and young adult and then learn about the parts of the Bible. We will start social studies, or SS, and learn about communities and maps. We will attempt to start Reading Centers this week. There will be 4 reading groups and 4 different centers over 2 periods. We will be reading a fiction story about a moose on trial named "Cardigan Jones". The children will learn about sequence of events with the story. They will be taking home leveled readers and a reading comprehension sheet on most Thursdays. In writing, we will be finishing the autobiographies and continue working on Biopoems and start writing about Autumn.

religion review sheet is under "resources"

We will be doing a book project for October using the genre of mystery. You can find the instructions for the project under "Resources" in the side bar of this website. We do all the writing in class. Just decorating and the box design is done at home. It will be due Oct. 23rd.

For Music: Please bring in a large can from coffee, iced tea, hot chocolate, oatmeal, etc. They will be making drums in music.

Mrs. Urso, our Guidance Counselor, will be in our class on Thursday to discuss friendships in third grade and bullying. She will come in about 5 times this year.

******Homework will be posted under the "Homework" sidebar on the left box*****A notice  will also be posted under resources side bar.

If your child is staying after school for an activity or going home differently than normal, you need to send in a note letting me know this each time. If your child is going to Aftercare on certain days for the whole year, I just need one note. If a child is ABSENT, I also legally need a note explaining the absence so I can put it in my attendance log.
