3rd Grade – Ymker

January Newsletter

What we are learning in January!

Math– We will be continuing our unit on geometry including 2-D and 3-D shapes. We will also begin to look at perimeter and area

Reading/Writing – We will be writing reports on a famous author. Also, we will be working more on proper punctuation in our writing.

Science– We will be continuing our study of our solar system

Social Studies– We will be finishing our unit on government and beginning to create timelines.

To prepare for the NWEA winter test please help ensure that your student gets plenty of sleep the night before their test. Also, help by making sure that they arrive to school on time as we may be testing first thing in the morning.

Just a quick reminder about snow gear here at Forest…  Now that the weather is starting to get colder, we want to remind you and your student to start sending snow gear to school; such as hats, gloves, snow pants, boots, scarves, and winter jackets.  Please make sure that you label all of your student’s belongings and send them with an extra pair of shoes or boots to wear when there is snow or mud on the ground. We will continue to go outside unless the temperature is too cold or it is raining.  If your student does not wear boots when there is snow on the ground, they will be required to play on the pavement during recess.
