June 2

Thank you to all our parents who were able to join us at John Ball Zoo! We had a fantastic day, and I’m so proud of the way the 3rd graders presented their flex habitat projects!

Photos are at the end of this post.

We have finished all of our district assessments, as well as MSTEP. Our class had great perseverance! I will be sending copies of your child’s district assessments, including their Just Right reading levels, so you can see how your child has progressed over their 3rd grade year.

In class, we have been finishing our last mini units in math. We have focused on addition and subtraction with regrouping, mental math and rounding, multiplication by multiples of 10, and two-step word problems involving all operations. There is a short section in the math book that gives a sneak peak at 4th grade math. I will send it home before the last day of school as a tool to use in the summer.

We are working on our final unit of science: Earth and Me. As you can see from Seesaw, we ware exploring Earth materials: rocks, minerals, and soil. We will be learning how rocks are formed and what they are made of.

In writing, we are completing our All About books on our animals we researched. These next few days, you might see your child come home with writing homework. We are working hard to get them finished by the end of the school year!
