Our puppet production is well underway! We will be finishing them up this week. Our performance will be this Friday from 12:30-1:30 in the 3rd grade pod!
As for robotics, we will also be starting that this week. We will be having robotics for 8 weeks starting on January 22. The class will be only Mondays from 9:40-11:05. Parents are welcome to help, but she asks that you can commit to more than just a week or two as it takes some time to explain how to help the students and check off missions.
We are going to start working on parts of a story this week. We will also continue to work on finding the moral of the story. Moral and most important event are things that I would encourage you to continue to work on while reading at home. While we have switched to fluency reading for homework, it is still important that students are reading and discussing books at home. When working with kiddos during DRA testing, I noticed that the comprehension piece is the biggest struggling. We will continue to work on it in class as well!
We will be doing a "4 square" writing about weekends this week. This format helps students focus their writing and add details.
We will continue to work on the vowel team spelling and phonics pattern.
Our focus this week will continue to be counting coins. Have your child help you count some change this week!
Body systems will still be the focus this week. We will dive a little deeper into the respiratory system and then start the circulatory system.
Please remember that homework now goes home on Monday and is due the following Monday. There will no longer be book bags or reading logs, so please just make sure the packet comes to school on Monday in their place. :)
Have a great week!
