Next Week

Hello families,

Next week is the last week before the end of the card marking. We will be taking the Science test on Weather and Climate on Thursday. The study guide came home today, please have them read it once a day over the weekend. I have another study guide that I created for the water cycle quiz. I will give that (study guide) to them on Monday.

In math, we are halfway through our next unit, Module 3. We will take the mid-module assessment on Wednesday. The review will come home on Tuesday for practice. The last module on measurement was a challenging one for most students. We will continue to work on these skills to prepare for the NWEA, math portion and M-STEP.

We will continue to work on our social studies projects and present them to the class. Our next unit, is on the Growth of Michigan.

The NWEA Reading Assessment will be given on Wednesday and Thursday. So far, all students have made growth on the language portion. Way to go …. 3rd graders!

In writing, we have been working on opinion/persuasive pieces. The students will be writing their last piece on whether they prefer a dog or a cat as a pet. Next card marking, we will focus on informational writing.

Enjoying your children,

Mrs. Jennifer Venis

A Heartfelt Thank You

Dear Families,

I feel so blessed to have your children in my class. I thank you for sharing them with me. A big shout out to YOU… a very generous group of parents! Enjoy time off with your friends and family. I wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year.

The students have a challenge: to go on Zearn, (math) espark (reading) and prepdog.org (NWEA practice). The students with the most minutes wins a prize… if the whole class goes on… they will earn a party.

Stay Warm and Take Care,

Mrs. Venis
