*Early dismissal Wednesday January 15 @ 1:30
*No School Monday January 20 MLK Birthday
*Scholastic book orders due Friday Jan. 24 (Class code: LJ37L)
Week of January 13-17
Starting Monday January 6, we will be changing from doing a Reading/Spelling lesson in 5 days to using 7 days. This means that instead of starting a new lesson on Monday and having Spelling and Reading tests on Friday each week, these tests will be given 7 school days after introduction. For example: We are starting Lesson 11 on January 6, so we will be working on this lesson for the next 7 days, and the test will be given on January 14. I will keep this updated.
Reading/Language Arts "Week" January 15-24
Essential question: Why is it important to grow food crops?
Spelling: (Pretest will be given on Wed, Jan. 15 and posttest will be given on Fri. Jan 24.)
hole, whole, its, it's, hear, here, won, one, our, hour, their, there, fur, fir
Review words: road, rode Challenge words: peace, piece
Math: Chapter 6 Patterns in the Multiplication Table
Essential question: What is the importance of patterns in learning multiplication and division?
Science/Social Studies: We will begin a Social Studies unit called People Move from Place to Place. It will focus on why communities change over time. Scholastic News will continue to be used as well.
Handwriting: Students will be working on D’Nelian cursive writing. We will integrate cursive into our assignments later in the year. Students are encouraged to practice daily.
Students should have enough time to complete most assignments in class. Schedules, this year, have been set up to allow more time to complete assignments while at school. If your child is bringing home a lot of work every day, they may not be using class time wisely. If you have a concern, please contact me!

Each student begins the day on the green “Ready to Learn” card. Students following the rules will keep his/her magnet on the green card or move up to the blue or purple cards. These are the two positive behavior cards above “Ready to Learn”. If a student ends up on a positive behavior card, they will receive an incentive. A student who does not follow the rules may be asked to move his/her magnet to the yellow “Think about it” card. This is only a warning. It gives the student a chance to reflect and change his/her behavior. If improvement is made the student will be able to move his/her magnet in a positive direction!
On the other hand, if the student’s behavior does not improve, he/she will be asked to move his/her magnet to the orange “Make Better Choices” card. Any time a student goes to the orange card there will be a consequence, normally a missed recess. Students on the orange card may "move up" if behavior changes.
Continued negative behavior could result in a student moving his/her magnet to the red or "Parent Contact" card. Red card consequences include loss of a recess and a note, phone call, or email to the parent.
Students who show positive behavior will be rewarded and encouraged for their behavior. Each third grade teacher will offer special rewards to their students for positive behavior. There will also be monthly rewards, quarterly rewards, school-wide rewards, and unannounced rewards for students who are showing positive behavior. We want all students to choose to be safe, be respectful, and be responsible.
