HMath: We are winding down multiplication. We will have our final timed multiplication test this Friday, Jan 29th. Based on how far they have learned their multiplication tables, they have earned different toppings for ice cream sundaes. We will have our Multiplication Celebration on Friday, Feb 12th. Please let our room moms know if you can help by supplying us with ice cream and toppings. Thank you in advance.
Please have your child continue to practice all their multiplication facts. They need to be fluent to 10x10 before the end of the year. We will be using multiplication through out the year, but we will no longer be practicing facts in class.
This week we will begin division. This is an area where quick recall of mult facts is very important.
HW: 261 - 262 from their workbook
Spelling: We are on Sort #18 with -ed endings and -ing endings. Spelling City has all the sorts available for your child to practice their spelling words each week.
Reading: Students have been given homework in RAZ kids for reading. They should be taking a quiz after reading to help with comprehension. If they need to be moved up a level, please let us know. This homework counts towards Homework Club participation.
Our reading in class has been based on Social Studies and Science information. We will also be exploring some winter themed reading as well.
Social Studies: We have begun to study Mary McLeod Bethune. So far we have just introduced her with power points and group discussion. Students will begin to do on-line Pebble Go independent research to learn about how she diligently (vocabulary word) worked for equal rights and freedom for education.
Science: We will have our test over Georgia regions of Coastal Plains and Ocean on Friday. A study guide came home last week. NOTE: We created a Quizlet study guide based on the specifics that they need to know for the test. It can be located by going to the 3rd Grade Resources Tab and clicking on the orange Q at the bottom left. Students can flash card themselves as well as take practice tests. We will be sending home actual flash cards for them to make as well.
