Mrs. Clark's 3rd Grade Classroom
We begin each day promptly at 8am! It is critical that your child arrives at school in plenty of time to eat breakfast (if applicable) and arrive in the classroom before 8am. The cafeteria begins serving breakfast at 7:20am each morning. Children are allowed to enter the classroom at 7:45am (school-wide policy).
Week Ending October 24th
Weekly Log: Logs are assigned on Mondays and are due at 8am on Fridays. Logs contain reading and math assignments that should be completed at home each evening. Late Logs will NOT be excepted unless the student is absent from school on the day the Log is due - no exceptions.
Language Arts: We will continue reading our novel, "Sarah, Plain and Tall" written by Patricia MacLachlan. We are reading this novel together working on various grammar, comprehension, and artistic activities as we read through the novel.
Spelling Tests are given every Thursday.
The school's Media Center is now open as well as my classroom library. Students are NOT allowed to take my classroom library books home but should take the books checked out from the Media Center home each evening. Students are required to take AR tests on books checked out from the Media Center. I am requiring the students to take and pass eight (8) AR tests at 80% or higher the second nine-weeks. I do allow (and insist) the students to use their books while taking AR tests to find evidence of their answers. Please read with your child each evening - and re-read books as this increases a child's reading fluency, reading comprehension, and overall success in life!!!!!
Math: We will begin our unit on Multiplication this week.
Science: We will continue investigating the Human Body - The Muscular System this week. The test for this unit will be on Thursday afternoon.
REMINDER: 'Excuse Notes' for absences, as well as bus/car rider changes, need to have handwritten notes in ink containing the following information: my name, date(s) of absence; full name of student; reason; and, parent signature.
