Happy New Year! 2018

Dear Room 8 Families,

 

The holidays are over and winter is here. I hope all of you enjoyed our break and spent time with family. Reminder to dress warmly on cold days. Hopefully we can keep the flu season away from our classroom.

 

 We are still hard at work on sentence structure and rules for writing a clear paragraph with details, introduction and conclusion. Most  of us have completed our first informational writing on California Native American Tribes.Our next writing assignment will be opinion writing, Everyone gave their hobby speech before break. I am very proud of the hard work and courage everyone had to stand up in front of their classmates. In math we started our new math book, beginning with Module 7. We will be working on multiplication and moving into three digit addition. I want to remind everyone to get flash cards for home. We take a multiplication test every Friday.  Three students have successfully passed all their multiplication tests through 12. Practice every day please! In social studies we are learning about the Native Americans who lived in California . In science we started with our studies of the Earth, Moon and Sun.  We love our new chapter book, Stone Fox.  Ask us how Grandpa communicates with Willy.

 

Our students have many opportunities for resources on line. Before break I will send home progress reports so the children can work on ST Math. For January your child should be at 45% completion. This is part of their homework.  We have ST Math, RAZ Kids, Typing Agent and Footsteps to Brilliance. Codes have been sent home for all programs. All these programs are valuable resources and will make third grade more successful. Typing agent needs to be used on a computer or a tablet with a keyboard.  I will continue to check each week to make sure students are trying these sites at home. 

 

Always look at your child's homework to see updates in the Butler Banner section. Our next day off from school is Monday, January 15th for Martin Luther King's Birthday Observance.

 

Remember just send me a note if you ever have any questions or concerns

Multiplication Fact Struggles

Every  Friday we have a multiplication fact test.This is a timed test, so speed and accuracy are important.  Every night students should be practicing their multiplication facts. We must know these to be successful in third grade.  

 

I will send home songs to help the students remember the facts.

 

The idea of drilling and memorizing the facts is the best way to get those facts to to stay in our brains.

Practice, Practice, Practice!

Read every night, sign up for a  library card or visit a book store. I will update everyone's RAZ Kids reading levels as students progress. Practice your math facts! Flash cards are quick and easy to make, unless you bought them. Fact Monster  (factmonster.com) is a great resource too! ST Math should be played every night also. We have Footsteps to Brilliance as well as Typing agent to help.

Snacks Needed Please

We love snacks for recess with all our fun learning activities. We get hungry by recess.  Crackers, goldfish, pretzels are all healthy choices.
