Scholastic Book Orders

Scholastic book orders will go home each month. Each purchase earns points for the classroom. I recently ordered 2 Chromebooks to have in the classroom with our bonus points from the books that have been ordered. This will allow the students to practice typing when they finish their work early, or work on publishing their writing. The online code is HKLNN if you would rather order online. Thank you for your support. 

Donations

If you would like to donate something to our classroom, we can always use the following:

  • Tissue,
  • Paper towels
  • Baby wipes
  • Clorox wipes
  • Toilet paper/paper towel tubes
  • Legos 
  • Colored popsicle sticks (the fat ones)
  • Velcro dots

Thank you in advance for your support!

 

Multiplication Facts

Third grade is where the students will be focusing on memorizing the multiplication facts. There will be timed tests twice a week to help students learn their facts quickly. By the end of third grade, everyone should know their multiplication facts from 0 to 12. Knowing the multiplication facts by heart will help the students in math, so please help your child learn their facts. Once they finish the multiplication through 12, they will begin division. We will make flash cards in class for the kids to practice with at home.

Dibels

We will be doing Dibels three times this year. We will be starting the BOY (beginning of year) Dibels pretty soon. Please make sure your child is reading out loud for 1 minute two times a day. Then have them tell you what they remember about the reading. They should be able to give at least 3 details in order. We will practice these skills in the classroom throughout the year as well. Thank you for your help.

Notes
Marvelous Me Poster

The first project that is due is a Marvelous Me poster. The students will have a week to create this poster at home. The poster is all about them. Each student will present his/her poster to the class on Monday, August 20th. The poster should have drawings, words, sentences, pictures, cutouts, etc. that describe the student and the things they like and that are important to them. Each child will receive directions in class on Tuesday, 8/14.

Current Assignments
Book Report

There will be a book report due at the end of each month starting in September. The first one is a cereal box book report. If you eat cereal, please save the box so your child will have one to use for the report. I will have extra cereal boxes if your family does not eat cereal. There will be directions posted here as soon as I give them to the students.

 

Reading is Important!

Please make sure your child is reading for at least 20 minutes a day. There will be a reading log sent home every week to track this reading. Reading helps your child with vocabulary, spelling, writing, comprehension, etc. If your child does not like to read, you could always try a family reading time where everyone sits down with a book and reads for 20 minutes without distractions like TV or devices.
