A Peek at our Week
Reading with Mr. Wellen
Mr. Wellen teaches reading, spelling, and vocabulary. The students will receive spelling homework every week. It is important to make sure the homework gets completed because we will not cover spelling words during the week. We will be working on reading skills and strategies the majority of our week. The students will complete a spelling, vocabulary, and a Cold Read Test every week. Most of the time spelling and vocabulary tests will be on Thursday and Cold Read Tests on Friday!
Math with Miss Lappe
Grammar/Writing with Mrs. Nave: December 10th
This week in grammar we will be reviewing similes and moving on to introduce personification. This will require more time than usual, so there will be no grammar assessment this Friday. WE will have it on Wednesday or Thursday next week. In writing, students will be reading their narratives to the class and will be given one last opportunity to edit before grading.
Social Studies with Mrs. Jondro
Mrs. Jondro teaches Social Studies to all of 3rd grade. Each student will have a social studies text that they will use to learn about communities - past and present. Students will also be going through a Daily Geography program. Check the back of the weekly newsletter to see what geography skills they are learning each week. They will be quizzed over these skills on Fridays. You can also find a copy below if your newsletter gets misplaced.
