Newsletter -Friday, September 16th

Thank you again, for taking the time to attend Curriculum Night.  I can’t tell you how nice it was to present in person, and not to a computer on Zoom!  This week the students have been getting used to their routines and easing into the workload and expectations of third grade.  Please remember to look at your child’s agenda every evening and ensure their binder goes back and forth every day.

I’m going to try this week and in the future to post the newsletters here on the classroom webpage.  I’ll send a link every week to remind you to check them but this way we can look back and they are all in one place!*

-Please make sure your child has a pair of working headphones at school.  I had several extras but we seem to still be short a few pairs.

-MAP testing begins next week.  We will be testing Tuesday and Thursday so please refrain from making appointments those mornings.  (There will be no homework prior to the testing to ensure rest and for a break.)

-First field trip -Whatcom Farm Circle scheduled for the afternoon of October 25th.  We will need drivers so mark your calendars.  Permission slips to come home early October.

-Please check Seesaw for photos of the week and tips for homework.


Literacy -Cursive letters d and g, open syllables, writing a variety of responses to independent reading, and publishing All About Me poems.  (There are 15 days of “routines and expectations” that we move through before getting into the first unit in our reading program.)

Math -Review addition facts, place value, rounding to the nearest ten and hundred.

Social Studies –Compass rose, cardinal and intermediate directions.

Science -STEM -If I Built a School, Fossil introduction.

Religion -Mass -Introductory rights, Liturgy of the Word, and mass responses.

Art (Mrs. Santos) – Feelings Shape Drawing.  Inspired by the book Exactly You! The Shape of Your Feelings, the third-grade students turn their own feelings into two-dimensional geometric and organic shapes in no time.


I hope to see you at the Harvest Festival/Spaghetti Dinner this Saturday!
