Weekly Report

    Dear Parents,

    I hope you had a great weekend!  I apologize for the delay of the weekly report.  My internet at home was down until late last night.  Here are a few reminders for the upcoming week.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Enjoy your week!

    • Please make sure your child has a charged laptop and brings it to school every day.  We are running into instances where laptops are not charged, and students cannot complete given assignments.  
    • Homework completion is must in third grade. Homework counts as 10% of your child’s grade.  Please ensure that your child is completing his/her assigned homework each night. 

    Below you will find information about our classroom/school happenings as well as what students will be working on this week.  

                                                      Here is what we are working on this week:

    Math: This week we will finish with data. Students will have a test on Friday.  Students will continue to have weekly multiplication fact tests until they have mastered all facts.   PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY ARE STUDYING THESE NIGHLTY!  Also, please make sure that your child is completing homework nightly.  All math homework should have work shown.  Homework that is missing work will result in a loss of 10 points. 

    Reading:  Our focus this week in reading is literal and nonliteral language.  Students will determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, identifying words that impact the meaning in a text.  Just a reminder that students should be reading and answering their assigned chapter book questions each night for homework.  All reading responses MUST be in complete sentences with the question restated in their answer to avoid a loss of 10 points. 

    Science:   We will continue with our unit on forces and motion.  Students will learn that motion and force result in the direction and speed of an object.  Students will learn what is needed in order to do work; how force affects objects; and how levers are used for lifting. 

    Word Study:  Spelling words this week are short i, o, and u sounds.  Please make sure your child is studying his/her spelling words nightly in preparation for our spelling test on Friday. Concepts this week are similes; metaphors, and idioms. 

    Writing: Students are typing their five-paragraph essay this week.
