I hope everyone had a nice weekend. In ELA this week students will be receiving a new list of spelling words to study. Students will be tested on their words on October 22. Next week the third grade students will be taking the AIR test in reading. We will be preparing for the test this week in class by practicing using former tests. During class this week we will be wrapping up our folktale unit by reading pourquoi tales. Also in ELA students will be working on paragraph writing and correcting run on sentences. In math students will continue to focus on addition and subtraction. We will be starting a new unit in social studies this week which focuses on our communities local history. In science we will be continuing with our unit on animal life cycles. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
