3rd Grade – Holloway

December Newsletter

Oh the weather outside is frightful! But in third grade it’s delightful!

This month we will be digging more into multiplication! We’ll be learning and memorizing the 3, 5 and 10 multiplication facts. In Science we will finish out unit on the solar system!  The kids have had fun learning about the planets and what makes each one unique along with constellations, moon phases and solar eclipses. We will also finish up our unit on narrative writing. We have been consistently meeting in our leveled groups and I’m noticing some students using their new skills when describing the main ideas of a story.

We will have a holiday party on Wednesday, December 20th in the afternoon. More details will come home as the date approaches.

And if you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it one hundred but it needs to be repeated: we will have outside recess as long as the temperature is above 10*F. So, PLEASE send your child with adequate outside clothing (hats, gloves, boots, etc.) and  PLEASE LABEL your child’s items.
