3rd Grade – Lemley

December Newsletter

We do not assign homework in the third grade, however practicing flash cards  in multiplication and studying our spelling words  need  practicing at home.

Please make sure to work with your child on their multiplication facts.  We have made flash cards of all of the facts 0-12.

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
We will begin our study of the Solar System this month in Science.  This is a great time for our students to learn about this great world in which we live.  Social Studies will continue with the study of Michigan.

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.

Our school dance will be held on Dec. 2nd at the lake View Middle  School. We hope to see everyone there.
