3rd Grade – Lemley

February Newsletter

Reminders:
Please make sure your student comes to school prepared for outside recess.  We will be going out any day  when the temperature is above 10 degrees. Having  boots for outside and a pair of shoes for inside is essential for keeping our building safe and clean.

Math:
Please make sure to work with your child on their multiplication facts.  We still have many third graders who have not mastered them.

Reading:
An important part of our reading curriculum is spelling.  We are practicing our spelling during our Daily Five times, but this is not enough.  Students should be bringing their lists home daily and preparing for the pre-test on Thursday and the final test on Friday.

Science & Social/Studies:
In science we will be working with elements and compounds, and then moving into physical and chemical changes.  We will also be finishing up our study of Michigan.

Writing:
We are working on our next writing composition  this month.  Students will be working on an opinion piece.  This will encourage our writers  to form and opinion and back it up with evidence.

Misc.
Our Valentine’s Day party will be held on Feb. 14th.  Students may bring Valentines to exchange.
