Week Ahead – 10/28 – 11/1

Hello families, I hope you had a nice weekend! This week is a busy one for our classroom and here at Miller. Wednesday students will attend the Pumpkin Patch and Petting Farm. For our PBIS reward, students will enjoy a magic show. Wednesday night is Miller Boo Bash from 5-6:30 pm. Friday will be a half day for students with an 11:45 am dismissal. This is the last week in the card marking period. It’s hard to believe a quarter of the year is done. This week we will be wrapping up many of our units and finalizing report cards. Parent teacher conferences are fast approaching, and I will be sending out reminder notices of the time and date of your conference that you signed up for at Open House. Those will be coming home by the end of the week. If you have not sent back the parent consent form for the healthy living class that all third graders will be participating in, please get that turned in by Wednesday at the latest. That is when our next class is, and if your child does not have a signed consent form on file, he or she will not be able to participate. Here is our focus for the week:

Math: The module 1 test will be on Tuesday. We will begin our next module on measurement and focus on telling time. Please practice reading clocks with your child and asking him or her questions about time. For example, how long will something take or how much time is it between two activities.

Science: We will be taking our science test on Thursday. Study guide for this test will come home on Tuesday.

Social Studies: The geography unit test will be on Tuesday. We will review the study guide today. I am confident that students are prepared for this test. Please study with your child as well to prepare them even more. This will be an online test.

Reading: We will be comparing and contrasting informational texts by finding the main ideas and key details.

Writing: Students will finish typing their personal narratives and show what they know about writing personal narratives by writing a scary story.

  1. Study for math test 
  2. Finish social studies study guide – Test Tuesday! 
  3. Read 20 minutes

Week Ahead – October 21 – 25

Hello Families! I hope everyone enjoyed this beautiful weekend! It will be a little chillier throughout the week, so please make sure your children are dressed for the weather. This week we have our firehouse field trip Monday afternoon. We will be leaving right after lunch. On Wednesday morning we will be participating in a healthy living workshop. This is our first week out of six where kids will learn about healthy eating choices. It will take place every Wednesday. Make sure to ask your children what they’re learning and see how you might be able to incorporate some of those things in your home. Here is what we will be focusing on this week.

Math: We will be solving multiplication and division story problems. Students will get an end of module review by the end of the week. The module one test will be on Monday, October 28.

Science: Our test will be next week. Look for the study guide to come home Wednesday. The answer key to the study guide will be posted on my blog if you’d like to help your child study.

Social Studies: We will be continuing our study of the geography of Michigan. By the end of the week students will get a study guide. There will be a test next week.

Reading: Our focus continues to be on informational text. We will focus on finding the main ideas and supporting details.

Writing: This week we will start typing our personal narratives for publication.
