Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend.  Here is a look at our week ahead.

Math:  We will be working on solving two step word problems and looking for arithmetic patterns.  We will have a topic quiz on Tuesday over the last few lessons covered.  There will not be a study guide for this.

Science:  We will be starting our life science unit by studying variations in seeds.  We will investigate a variety of fruit seeds and compare and contrast them.

Reading:  We will be analyzing informational text by looking carefully at pictures and text to obtain information.

Writing:  We are working on writing in response to a reading prompt to prepare for MSTEP.

The MSTEP test is coming up soon.  Third grade will be taking it at the end of April.  Over these next few weeks we will be focusing a lot of attention on test taking skills and practice with math and reading practice pages.
