Welcome Back!

February 24, 2020

 Dear Families,

 

I hope you had a fantastic break!  I know I sure did!  Skiing, running, cooking, eating, sleeping in and hanging with friends and family filled my nine days of break to the brim!

 

So here we are, back at it and ready to rock!  Here's a little ditty about what's going down here in third grade:

 

Nordic Skiing:

 

We're moving from alpine skiing and snowboarding to some sweet classic Nordic skiing.  For the next three Wednesdays (starting next week) we will be bussing over to the Nordic Center for some quality time and instruction on the track from 9-11!  This is such a fun experience as it's just going to be our class together and you are welcome to join us!

 

The Nordic Center will be providing us with FREE gear!  But, please be sure your child has the following:

-sunglasses (or goggles can work too)  This is a MUST.  Being out in the snow for 2 hours requires protective eyewear.

-sunscreen

-layers

-a snack for their pocket (we love to eat snacks)

-appropriate socks 

-hats, gloves/mittens

-optional camel back for water

 

Math:

We're plugging away on our unit on fractions and multiplication.  Most of us have mastered rolling our threes and we're all on to rolling our sixes.  Woohoo!

 

How you can help at home:

Encourage your child to practice rolling their threes and sixes.  There is a print out in their home folder to help.  Also, encourage them to solve facts by rolling those numbers.  Have them show you how they can solve 6x8 by rolling.  

 

Reading:

We're digging deep into biographies and utilizing a double-entry journals to take notes on what we've learned and what we're wondering about these fantastic people. So far, we've studied Harriet Tubman, Harriet Quimby, Wilma Rudolph, and now Sonia Sotomayor. It's incredible what these people overcame in their lives and the greatness achieved because of it.  We're so inspired!

 

How you can help at home:

Discuss your own favorite biographies!  Do a deep dive on a person you are your child admire. I recently did one over break on Mister Rogers and was so inspired by his amazing capacity to be kind, loving and compassionate to all.

 

Writing:

We're finishing up our final drafts for biographies and implementing a sweet new tool: VOICE TYPING!  Sounds easy and fun, huh?  It is and it also helps us be very explicit about adding those periods since we have to voice them!

 

How you can help at home:

Ask your child to get into their Google Drive and have them show you!

 

That's all for now!  Some upcoming events that I don't have the dates for are:

 

-CMAS testing

-Conferences

 


Stay tuned.


Thanks for all you do!
