I wish you could hear the conversations that take place in our classroom book clubs. You would indeed be impressed by how deeply your kiddos are thinking about the characters in their novels. Kudos to you, third graders!
Thanks for encouraging your child to do their nightly reading of their book club books. It makes for our morning book club meetings to be much more productive for everyone.
We are continuing to plug away at our geometry unit in math. Unfortunately we will be taking a brief break from that work in order to take the M-Step later next week. That's ok, though. We can't WAIT show off our skills on that M-Step.....bring it on!
Speaking of M-Step, we have done some practice work on it this week. I have tried to stress to the kids that what matters is simply doing your best. As always. Parents, if you're wondering, the best way to prepare your child for this assessment is to ensure they get a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast.
Next week Friday we will be having an exhibition of the third grade STEAM project. The students have been working to create a zoo habitat for specific animals they have researched. More information will be forthcoming. We look forward to seeing you!
Some upcoming dates to mark on your calendars:
