Welcome Miss Keech

Dear Room 8 Families,

 

 Miss Keech or Miss K has been in our classroom for two weeks. She is a wonderful young teacher. She is completing her last assignment in our room on her journey to becoming a teacher. She has started taking over teaching activities in the classroom. She will then have two weeks of solo teaching time. She will be with us until June. Please give her a warm welcome!

 

We have a busy couple of weeks leading to our spring break. Next week on Wednesday we have our walking field trip to the Peterson Nature Center. We leave at 8:20 am.and we will return before lunch. On Monday, April 9th we will have special class visitors. On Wednesday April 11th we will be having an award winning author visit to tell us about his stories. We will be hosting two day time assemblies and having a family reading night that same night. Then on Friday, April 13th we will be walking to Central Park for the Earth Day Arbor Day Celebration. Then we are dismissed early on the 13th for spring break.

 

We will finish working on opinion writing this week. This has been a difficult concept so spent several weeks on it.  In math we are learned about finding area of rectangles and now we are working on multiplication again. We take a multiplication test every Friday.  Ten students have successfully passed all their multiplication tests through 12. Practice every day please!  In social studies we finished learning about events that have helped shaped California. We read about the missions, the gold rush and the transcontinental railroad. In science we will be starting our new unit, Energy and Motion in April. We loved having the maker cart come on March 21st. We  did some fun hands on science activities. It was great. We started reading our new chapter book, Ragweed. A country mouse goes on an adventure to the city.  We are practicing our recorders too! Our music concert will be in May. Make sure that your child brings their recorder and music book every Thursday.

 

Our students have many opportunities for resources on line. I will be sending home progress reports for ST Math. Your child should be at 70% 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. 

 

Remember just send me a note or an email 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.
