Weekly Wrap Up

Our study of geometry is underway! Along with doing their regular math homework and studying math facts, your child should also be spending some time studying their math vocab. There’s a great online resource for this that I just learned about, and shared with the children: Quizlet. The third grade teachers at Wheeler have put all of the vocab words on there, and there are electronic flashcards, games, and quizzes available. We’ll have a quick vocab quiz next week to see how they’re doing.

Please keep an eye on the amount of candy and super sugary treats your child brings to school. A healthier snack is better able to keep him/her focused and learning through the morning than a sugary one. A little treat at lunch is great if you want, but too much sugar may wind them up and make it harder to settle and concentrate on their afternoon reading.

Here's what we'll be learning about next week:

  • Reader’s Workshop: Talking about fiction books we read
  • Writer’s Workshop: Persuasive writing
  • Spelling: Unit 26 - Words home on Monday, test on Friday
  • Math: Topic 11 - Geometry
  • Science: Habitats - Finish posters and present
Please remember that my door is always open if you have any questions or concerns. Together we are partners in your child’s education!
