WELCOME TO MAY!

The school year is almost over!  We have finished our math book.  We will continue to work on pages in the SBAC practice work book and I will pre-teach some 4th grade concepts.  We will continue studying WEATHER in both our reading and science program.  Currently, students are doing an in class research project related to weather.  When finished, they will have to present what was learned to the class.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------_

FYI SBAC results will be sent to families over the summer.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The ELA portion of the SBAC testing is over.  Next week students will take the math portion of SBAC.  You can use the math classroom/homework workbooks to review for the upcoming math tests.  Both math books were sent home on Wednesday.  

My classroom schedule for the next week will be different.  This is partially due to preparing students for SBAC and then taking the actual SBAC tests

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Third grade plans of having FIELD DAY on the last day of school June 6th.  I'm hoping to get two parent volunteers to help out on this day from around 8:45 - 12 noon.  You will run one of our stations that we have set up where students will be playing a fun game.  All stations are outdoors.  Example stations might be...Ring toss, sponge squeeze, bean bag relay, food necklaces, gummy bear whip cream eating.  Students will rotate from station to station in groups.  Each group will be at a station for about 10 minutes before they rotate to the next station.  Your job will be to stay at your station and get things going.  EMAIL ME IF YOU CAN VOLUNTEER.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------WE NOW HAVE TWO PARENT VOLUNTEER FOR FIELD DAY.  More are welcome to attend.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

During the next few weeks I will be giving some of my own assessments to cover standards that are on the report card.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FYI LAST DAY OF SCHOOL IS JUNE 6TH.  Please notify the office if you plan on leaving before that date.

If you are interested in seeing what the SBAC practice test looks like, here is a link.  Remember, the test isn't until May so you have plenty of time to view this practice test.  I will leave this link here until students take the actual test....

Once you get to the site, click on the green student test.  Leave both options to ON, and then follow the rest of the steps.

Here is a link you can use to see some of the tools students will need to get familiar with before taking the SBAC test...

BENCHMARK.  We continue our unit on WEATHER (same as what we are studying in science).  The spelling and vocabulary words for all 3 weeks are in this week's Friday folder.

Additional support for the unit on weather can be found on Google Classroom under Topics/ Benchmark.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UNIT 7 MATH TEST WILL BE GIVEN ON WED. MAY 18th.  You can find a practice test on THINKCENTRAL that is almost identical to the real test.

We continue our last unit in math on Fractions.  This unit will cover understanding fractions, numerator/denominator, locating fractions on a number line, comparing fractions, equivalent fractions, irregular fractions.

Additional support on fractions can be found on KhanAcademy and Iready.

FYI- I will be giving weekly timed multiplication/division facts tests. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next in history we will go over pages 162 - 169 (two weeks).  This unit is on Protecting the Environment.  Vocabulary words to study are: climate change

HISTORY BOOKS CAN BE TAKEN HOME AT ANY TIME AS LONG AS THEY ARE RETURNED THE NEXT DAY. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We continue our last unit on WEATHER.

In this unit, students investigate and make predictions about the weather through careful observation of the clouds and wind. Students also learn to differentiate between weather and climate and use models to reveal global climate patterns.

Our next Mystery Science video will be,  HOW CAN WE PREDICT WHEN IT'S GOING TO STORM

You can watch this on Google Classroom under Topics, Science, Weather

Some standards that will be covered are...(YOU CAN CLICK ON LINK)
