Classroom Community

Hi there goal-oriented students and parents,

It was great getting to meet you this past week. The short time we have spent together has made me excited for the year ahead. To get to know each other we are working to set goals, review concepts, and set expectations.

Throughout this process we have been entering into our social studies curriculum with the idea of communities. We discussed what our third grade and class communities need in order to function.

We also reviewed some place value concepts with interactive games. The rest of our time was spent doing assessments that help me best meet the needs of our community.

Next week:

  • Social Studies: Classroom community problem solving
  • Math: Place Value 
  • Writing: What makes a sentence
  • Spelling: Core words 
  • Reading: Basic Reading Skills
