Teacher Info


Nicole Stauffacher - Third Grade  (Send e-mail)

Dear Parents/Guardians,
This week students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by FastBridge Learning. FastBridge is District 157-Cís new screening instrument that will take the place of AIMSweb. Similarly to AIMSweb, this assessment will be provided in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals and which students may require intervention. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. The district will be providing training to all teachers on score interpretation. More information will be forthcoming to parents. I look forward to working with your child this school year.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Stauffacher

We will use "Ellen Ochoa" as our text to revisit character traits and character motivation in a story. We also will be working on identifying text features in non-fiction books.

This week the students will be working with finding the quotient of a division problem. They will also be working with skip counting of 4's, and will continue to work with multiplication using various methods, including the tape diagram. We will spend extra time focusing on labeling a tape diagram appropriately.
