Quarter 3 Week 1

Welcome back 3B! I hope everyone had a relaxing and memory creating Winter break! I had a wonderful time with family, enjoyed a friend's wedding, and got a new puppy, named Puff! I can't wait to hear all of the stories from your vacation too!
Our new rescue puppy, Puff!

Upcoming Testing

Please be aware that MAP benchmark testing is coming up for third grade on Jan. 15th. Students should just come to school having had a good night's sleep and a nutritious breakfast to fuel their work! Please make every effort for your child to be on time and in attendance on that day so that they do not lose instructional time doing make-up testing!

Language Arts

We will begin The Trumpet of the Swan this week! Please send it in asap. Spelling will be normal, with a test on Friday. Writing and grammar will focus on informational writing. Writing will actually be a big focus this quarter as we learn to formalize our skills. Students will receive their stanza to memorize from The Adventures of Isabel. The recitations will be on Jan. 23rd.


We will start off this quarter learning quickly about probability. There will be a small quiz to check for understanding on Wednesday after math groups. Then we will begin our unit on Fractions!


This week we will be learning about Sound! Students will learn what causes sound and how sound travels.


We will start our Viking unit this week! Students will begin to learn where the Vikings came from and what they did.
