3rd Grade News: 3/26

Hello families!
We hope that you are doing well.  Happy Spring!  Don’t forget that next Friday, April 2 there will be no school.  Report cards will be issued on Tuesday, March 31.  Finally, don’t forget about the Spring Auction as well!  Information can be found on the PPE website.
Here is what we’ll be up to next week.
  • In ELA we will continue our work on writing.  We are studying three types of writing–writing to Persuade, writing to Inform, and writing to Entertain (we use the acronym PIE to remember).  This week our focus will be on writing to inform.  Students will work on a few writing pieces to learn how to write to inform.  We will also be working on some TNReady prep.  We are gearing up for the big test at the end of April.
  • In Math we will continue to work on elapsed time.  We will be working on some challenging tasks and stretching our minds with time.  Have you child help you figure out time-related problems.  For example, if you get home at 3:33, play outside for 42 minutes, watch TV for 15, then do homework for 37 minutes, when will you be finished and ready for dinner?
  • In Science we will begin reviewing this year’s topics.
As always, let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
