Good afternoon,

This week's spelling list is an abridged one to teach your child spelling homework procedures.

Monday- sort the words into categories
Tuesday- Select 5 words to write a sentence
Wednesday-  Write a rhyming word for each word
Thursday-Please call out the words to your child.  They will spell them and sort them into spelling patterns. 
Friday-Spelling test.

This week in reading we are concentrating on reading realistic fiction.  They are working on making connections ( text to text, text to self and text to world) .  In Science we are reviewing the scientific method.  In social studies, we are reviewing the importance of being a good citizen and how they contribute to society.  Next week, we will begin to review the states studied in first grade.  Please refer to the list of states in the homework folder.   In math, we are introducing rounding numbers
 and reviewing how to write numbers in the standard and expanded forms.  Thanks for all you support.

Welcome to Third Grade.  We had a great first day!  This week we are working on establishing routines and procedures in our classroom .  In math and reading, we are establishing procedures for creating our workshop approaches.  Your children will reflect on their reading and math activities.   In science, we are learning how to be safe scientists. Thanks for welcoming me to MDE.  Follow me in order to get the latest classroom information.  My goal is the update the blog once a week. Thanks for all you do to support your child's learning experience.  We truly are a great partnership,   Ana
