We have a busy week ahead of us. We will wrap up our word problem unit in math. Next week, we will begin our unit on measurement. We will begin by reviewing telling time to the hour, quarter hour and five minute increment. According to the Common Core, third graders have to learn how to tell time to the minute. Please begin reviewing telling time skills with your student. They will also be responsible for knowing time telling vocabulary such as quarter after, half past, quarter to/of, noon, midnight, AM and PM. Once we are comfortable with telling time, we will begin with elapsed time.
Next week is our rescheduled field trip to the Science Museum. Some parents showed interesting in wanting to be chaperones. Please send me a note or an email if you are still interesting in joining us. Our field trip will be on January 14. Chaperones are asked to drive themselves to the museum due to limited bus seating availability.
I sent home two Scholastic Book orders on Thursday. Please take a moment to review the orders with your child. These two have particularly good books for the boys and girls of Room 2 to read. If you choose to order, please order online. I also sent home a reminder letter about how to order online. You can also click on the picture link right on my classroom homepage. If you order online, you do not have to pay for shipping. I do not mind filling out the order form and sending a check in, however, there is a minimal amount you have to order to qualify for free shipping. Thank you for your understanding!
Please look at our webpage; I updated some class notes, student work and photographs.
