Week #20: We are continuing Unit 3 concepts, grammar and spelling for Language Arts this week. "What do we know about Earth and its neighbors?" will be the weekly theme. In Math we will be building 3rd grade concepts in Division. We continue with Chapter 7 lessons 4-7 .
Please ensure your child is reading a minimum of 30 minutes each day, this should continue throughout the school year. The de-codable stories are a great start, but I would like to see your student develop more challenging reading material, as the school year progresses.
Remember, the way to become a better reader is to read! Please encourage your child to read at home, and remember, third graders still like to be read too!

amount--the number of something
astronomy--the study of the stars, planets, asteroids and universe

Spelling for the week:
Please continue to try for perfect attendance this year!!! The school year is about half over now with 5 calendar months left. If your child still has perfect attendance they are heading to the finish line already.
Happy New Year to all, we are on the down hill slope with half the school year completed. Please continue to motivate your children at home, I'm lending my best effort here at school
