Teacher Georgiana Lemmons - Third Grade  (Send e-mail)

December 10-14

Are you available Friday, December 21? Are you looking for something fun to do? We need a few more parents to help us with our Winter Party. Please email me if you are available.

Math
We will be having our End of Module Assessment on Wednesday, December 19. Instead of practice exit slips coming home, we have been highlighting/starring important problems in our workbook. A list of skills to practice will be coming home this week.

Please encourage your child to stay up to date on Zearn. Their math comprehension will increase the more they practice the lessons. Please note the lessons we are on in school and check the lesson your child is on. I will send an email reminder if your child falls too far behind on lessons. Please let me know if your child is having difficulty accessing a computer at home.

Multiplication Facts
Our focus is the 2 & 3 facts for the next 2 weeks. Multiplication cards will be coming home tomorrow. Please check to make sure your child is labeling the cards correctly and remind them to practice daily.

Reading
The students will bring home their biography book choices for the Third Grade Wax Museum Project. The students will read a biography, write a speech including important facts about their person, dress up like their person and then present it at the “Wax Museum” (speaking in a one to one setting) in January. More information will come home regarding the wax museum next week.

This week's skills are comparing and contrasting articles as well as using context clues to determine the meaning of unknown words.

Writing
We are finishing our informational chapter books.

Science
Our unit for 2nd quarter is Forces and Motion. This week we will look at the effects of friction and gravity on motion.
