Today is 5-7-12. What an easy number sentence! Add a plus sign and an equal sign and you are done.
In Math, we will be reviewing lots of topics such as rounding, estimating, computation, fractions, decimals, time and money. We continue to work very hard on math vocabulary and concepts including probability and measurement. Everything you pick up in your kitchen should have a metric and U.S. customary weight. Please hand it to your child to feel and read the amount. The Spring MAPS testing is happening this week so I want the students to remember what they know!
The SOCIAL STUDIES assignment to choose an important person in U.S. History and research the questions each student wrote is big this week. Your help would be greatly appreciated because the goal is to learn how to do research, especially which internet sites to trust, and also how to look up information in books. Your son should be reading as much as possible about his choice and then write a biography in his own words. The three paragraph (or more) essay is due Wednesday, May 16.
Third Grade SPANISH projects are coming due! I hope it’s been fun to find an animal from a Spanish Speaking Country and make its habitat.
We are reading Charlotte’s Web and enjoying the beautiful language and finding there are so many things to think about.
Many important dates coming up — Field Trip to Kenwood Academy on Tuesday, May 15. We will walk to the last concert which is from 12:00 to 1:00. Please feel free to join us. It’s great, FREE, live entertainment.
All for now, but please stay tuned because there’s a LOT happening now.
Thanks, as always, for your help and support.
P.S. LOOK at the pictures of the 3rd grade play rehearsal on last week’s post.
