Week of Oct. 17, 2011
This week we will have our conferences. I will try my best to adhere to the schedule. Thanks in advance for you flexibility and patience.
This week in math, we will continue subtracting two and three digit numbers that involve zeros ( 403-235).
Math facts keep improving. Thanks for all your help.
Your child is in the final stage of publishing their personal narrative and social studies projects.
In the weeks ahead, we will concentrate on reading nonfiction text and determining importance. I will be encouraging your child to “interact” with the text by recording connections, predictions, learned information on sticky notes or recording their thinking on the side of the passage. This is an important skill for our STAAR test.
Please encourage your child to read and record their reading in their reader’s response log/ notebook. We must build their stamina as readers. Thanks for all you do.
We will soon get a new white folder for the beginning of our new grading period. Excited about the new folders. J
I have emailed all of you your scheduled times. If you have not yet scheduled a time, please email me your preference.
Your third graders are working hard practicing for the play. The play will be on November 10, 2011.
Looking forward to our conversations.
