This is our last week for learning procedures and basics of learning before really getting into third grade material in Language Arts and Writing. We begin our Chapter 2 in Math: Addition and get to finally visit our labs on Friday.
For homework, students will be taking 3 minute timed tests in Math on basic addition. If they don't finish, that is okay, the point is to get the facts down and practice. One should be done each day. They will also be getting Paragraph of the Week, one page each night. However, since it is a short week, combine Tuesday and Wednesday sheets into one day (Wednesday).
This week we will be choosing our student council members. This is a year long commitment. Students that want to run need to talk with their parents about their decision and write 1 paragraph about why they want to do the job, parents please sign the bottom so I know you are aware of their decision.
Finally, a thanks to those who braved the heat to come out for Back to School night. It was great to meet you and start the year off right. I hope I was able to answer all questions and make you feel comfortable about the coming year.
