Besides getting outside to play in the wonderful weather that is expected, please have your child spend time on Xtra Math and on practicing his/her typing skills. Both programs can be found under the Clever login.
Math tests are coming home today. Please remember there are fact family sheets that can be printed out and cut apart that can be used to help your child learn his/her multiplication facts.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Today we are beginning a new module with a focus on place value and problem solving with units of measurement. Attached is the Topic A – Time Measurement and Problem Solving parent help sheet for lessons 1 – 5.
Please review at home how to read an analog clock with your child as he/she continues to work on learning multiplication facts. Fact family multiplication and division cards are attached to the message that you can print if you wish to help your child in the endeavor.
My name is Shadia Hamka I am one of the parents at Howard Elementary
Last week I received a flyer from a teacher about a cause they are working towards. As many may recall there was a young girl who passed away last year at one of the elementary schools. The school is working on creating a bench/seat in her memory. In order to make this happen they are asking for the following items to be collected (all listed in the flyer).
I thought it would be a great idea that we work together as a Howard Family and help work toward this cause. So, I am reaching out to all of the teachers in hopes that you can help me in sharing the information. All I would need is for the flyer to be posted on each of your blogs and in turn we will hopefully be able to work together in collecting the items (the flyer is attached to the email as a jpeg). Although there was not a deadline posted I was told it will be once they reach 3,000 tons. So maybe we can work on collecting the items for at least a couple of weeks and I will work to have a place for them to be stored where I can come to collect them weekly.
I thank each and everyone of you in advance and really appreciate the help!
Math Module 1 test will be given for all 3rd grade classes on Monday, October 14.
To help get into the Halloween spirit and get practice solving two step story problems, I asked the students to create their own problem. He/She will be bringing home a sheet of paper with written directions. There are three parts that are needed, a written story problem, a model (tape diagram, number bond, array, groups), and a number sentence. Students can refer to last night’s homework and Learn pages 121, 124, and 127 for ideas.
Tonight’s homework will be a draft. The final project will be created in school.
We are quickly approaching the end of the first module in math. The test will be given either Friday or Monday based on the needs of the students. Parent letters are available under math resources. Please also have your child to continue to work through all the lessons for module 1 on Zearn.
Thank you for your assistance,

I just caught up on grading all recent tests and quizzes. Please review MI Star for grades and any missing assignments.
While grading, I had some good laughs at the cute comments and pictures the kids drew. :). They are a fun bunch to work with. Thank you for all you do to help them get ready for school each and every day.
