September 21

Posted by Rochelle Schultz on 9/21/2021


September is almost over! The leaves are starting to change color and there is a crispness in the air. I hope all are doing well. We are still working toward getting used to the classroom routine and being in school full time. 

Homework goes home most nights. Everyone is busy with after school activities. Some kids are having difficulty juggling homework and after school sports or events. Let me know how I can help with these new adjustments. 


A few kids are still without earbuds or headphones. If you need assistance with getting a pair, let us know. They are very important especially during testing. 


READING RESPONSE -Every week, I will assign a new board. The first two questions at the top are required. Do the required ones on Day 1. Then, pick two from the bottom. Do one on Day 2 and the other on Day 3. That’s all you do for the week. Do the responses on a Google Doc or on paper and take a picture, then attach it. TURN IT IN.


This week, we are working on telling time to the nearest minute and lapse time.This has been very hard for most students. Please help your child tell time on an analogue clock. This will help greatly.


Spelling is going to look different this year. Third grade will focus on the spelling rules and the application of the rule so that encoding and decoding of words are more fluent. This week's rule is for "C" or "K". You will not see a list come home. all studying will happen in class. 

Watch Dogs

We are looking forward to having Watchdogs in the building again. I usually have the Watchdog work on building catapults with the students. Please send in milk bottle caps throughout the year. We will need them for one of our builds.
