    Hello Families,

    It was so nice to meet with many of you this week during conferences.  Even with our short week, your students are staying busy!

    In reading, students are continuing to practice synthesizing information about a subtopic from more than one text.

    In writing, your third graders are elaborating their chapters in their information books with more supporting details (examples, anecdotes, descriptions, definitions, etc.)

    In math, our class is continuing to practice multiplication strategies.  Right now, we are examining different arithmetic patterns, which will help students check their work.  Please have your child continue to practice their math facts at home.

    Lastly, in social studies, students are researching in preparation for their culture projects!  During conferences, I mentioned our upcoming museum walk, which will be held on Dec. 18th from 10:15-11:15.  Parents who are approved to volunteer are welcome to attend this event!  Students will begin to create these projects in class next week.

    Hello Families,

    It’s almost Thanksgiving Break!  We are having a great week.  Students are having a lot of fun learning.  Some highlights this week are using Google Expeditions to learn about cultures in social studies and making our class Stone Soup in reading!

    In anticipation of report cards and conferences, I’ve attached a resource for you to best understand this process.

    Here are a few things I want to note:

    - Report cards will be available on Family Access on Monday, December 2nd. Report cards provide a snapshot on your child’s progress this year.  You may expect me to elaborate fully during our December conferences.


    - Fours on a report card are rare, as that would mean a student is consistently demonstrating skills above a third grade level. A three in any subject area is great and means a student is meeting third grade standards! Comments and our discussion at conferences will give you a more specific idea of what these numbers represent, your child’s strengths, and what they are still working on. 

    -Many students may receive a 2 in “Mathematical Practices.”  Part of this standard represents if your child is showing his/her thinking fully when problem solving.  Please do not be alarmed or concerned if your child receives a 2 in this area.  This is an “end-of-the-year standard” and because it’s only November, many students are still practicing how to show their thinking consistently in math.  I look forward to continuing to watch your students improve throughout the year!

    - I am looking forward to seeing you all at parent-teacher conferences! In our conference, I will share some of your child’s work and talk about their strengths and what they’re working on. If I have any academic concerns, I will have already contacted you.  I am excited to have a conversation with you about your child, so please feel free to share any questions you have or let me know if there are areas you’d like to talk more about.


    I am very Thankful to work with you and your students each day.  I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.  

    Best,

    Eve Winter

    Hello Families,

    In reading, students are learning how to use the main idea and supporting details to summarize a nonfiction text  In addition, during snack time, students are enjoying comparing and contrasting the different versions of Stone Soup.  Please have your children wait to bring in their vegetables on Tuesday, 26th.  If they bring the vegetables in early, I have no way to keep them fresh until next week.  Thank you!

    In writing, students are continuing to work on their information books.  They have created a table of contents and are beginning to write some of their chapters.  Students are thinking about topic sentences that could introduce their ideas.

    In math, your third graders are using number bonds to help them decompose as they multiply and divide.  Students are also learning about the function of parenthesis in equations and how to apply this skill when problem solving. 

    Lastly, in social studies, your children are really enjoying learning about each other’s cultures.  We are comparing and contrasting cultures and having a lot of fun!

    I would also like to note that report cards will be available on Family Access on Monday, December 2nd.  Report cards provide a snapshot on your child’s progress this year.  You may expect me to elaborate fully during our December conferences.  I also want you to be aware that many students may receive a 2 in “mathematical practices.”  This section represents if your child is showing his/her thinking fully when problem solving.  Please do not be alarmed or concerned if your child receives a 2 in this area.  This is an “end-of-the-year standard” and because it’s only November, many students are still practicing how to show their thinking consistently in math.  I look forward to continuing to watch your students improve throughout the year!

    Hello Families,

    Your students are continuing to work hard!

    In reading, your third graders are reviewing how to write different types of reading responses using evidence from the text.  They are doing a great job!

    In writing, we have now finished our personal narrative unit.  I am so impressed with your students’ work!  Next week we will begin a new unit about informational writing.  Over the weekend, if you would like to start brainstorming informational writing topics with your child, that would be extremely helpful.  Topics should be something your child already knows a lot about.  For example, an animal, a sport, a country, a holiday, a hobby, etc.

    In math, your students recently took their end-of-the-module assessment.  Next week we will begin Module 3, which focuses more on multiplication and division.  For the first few lessons, the students will revisit the commutative and distributive properties.  They will also learn how to represent the unknown in a story problem with a letter.

    Lastly, we have now begun a Social Studies unit that is all about cultures in North America!  Students are currently learning about different cultural universals (food, clothing, transportation, etc.). 

    If you are curious in viewing your children’s salmon PowerPoints from our previous science unit, you are welcome to view these on Seesaw!  In addition, your child recently posted their narratives on this site.  Students always get super excited when they see that their parents have viewed and complimented their work.  J

    Hello Families,

    We had a fabulous Harvest Party yesterday!  Thank you SO much to the parents who volunteered their time and resources to make this party happen.  The students had a blast!

    In reading, students are learning how to infer character traits and emotions in a story.  In addition, they are practicing finding evidence in a text to support their thinking.  As your child reads at home, you may encourage them to identify traits and emotions of their characters and explain their reasoning.

    In writing, students are working hard to finish typing their personal narratives.  Yesterday we took a break from writing narratives to write spooky stories!

    In math, your third graders are learning how to use to the vertical number line to help them round to the nearest ten and hundred.  Additionally, they are learning how to use the standard algorithm to add and subtract.  They will then use these two skills to help them estimate sums and differences in story problems.

    Lastly, in science, students are putting their finishing touches on their salmon PowerPoints.  We will soon have our salmon assessment and then begin our first social studies unit, which is all about cultures in North America!

    Next week is Spirit Week!  Please see below for the schedule.

    Hello Families,

    Our class is having a great week!  I have quite a few important notes to share with you.  Please be sure to read this entire email carefully, as some of it pertains to the salmon hatchery field trip next week.

    In reading, students are learning how to make meaningful predictions as they read.  Please have your child to continue to read at home each night.  You may ask them about their predictions.

    In writing, students are continuing to write personal narratives.  This week, we are focusing mainly on how to show, rather than tell what is happening in our stories.  Additionally, students are learning how to use checklists to help them edit as they write.

    In math, your third graders are continuing to learn strategies to help them learn their multiplication and division facts.  Specifically, students are learning how to model the unknown factor in arrays and tape diagrams.  I also want you to know that your students recently took a mid-module assessment.  Please do not expect mastery of the standards at this point. Remember it is the beginning of the year and mistakes are good and help us learn. Please praise your child for a great effort.  They are doing a great job!

    Next, in science, your students are studying a salmon’s life cycle.  Feel free to ask them about this at home.  

    We are really looking forward to our field trip on Thursday, October 3rd!  Our class will be eating lunch in the classroom before we leave.  Please have your child pack a lunch on this day Thank you!

    Lastly, our class is still in need of a photographer.  Please use the link if you are interested. Thank you in advance!https://discovery.ourschoolpages.com/Packet/YearbookVolunteer/VolunteeringPacketPage/1

    Dear Families,

    Happy Friday! Our class is having another great week in third grade!

    This week in reading we are focusing on strategies that will help us make “movies in our mind” as we read.  Please have your child continue to read every night at home.  

    In writing, we are winding down our launching writer's workshop unit.  Next week, we will begin our personal narrative unit!  At home, you may start brainstorming with your child a short-moment story that has happened to them in the past. Common ideas include: the time I broke my arm, the time I went on my first roller coaster, the time I got a pet dog, etc.

    In math we are learning about the commutative and distributive property of multiplication.  Additionally, our class is learning how to use arrays and skip counting to solve multiplication and division equations. Please have your child practice their math facts at home, particularly their twos and threes multiplication facts.

    In science, students are learning about a salmon’s anatomy.  We are getting very excited for our upcoming field trip! Please be sure to return your permission slip as soon as possible, if you have not already.

    Lastly, we have begun to use Seesaw!  The students are really enjoying it.  Please feel free to “like” or comment on your students’ work.  Some of you have already done this and the students are so proud to see that their parents are noticing their efforts in class.  If you need any help navigating Seesaw, please let me know.

    I also want to give a friendly reminder to send your child to school with headphones in a labeled Ziploc bag.

    Dear Families,

    It was so nice to see many of you at Curriculum Night last night!  If you were unable to attend, you can expect your child to take home some important papers from last night.  Please be sure to read this entire email, as it is filled with important information.

    One of the papers you will see is a QR code inviting you to join our Seesaw class.  Our class will eventually use Seesaw to share work and pictures that we are doing in class.  Parents will only be able to view pictures posted of their own child.  Please use the QR code or the website to join our Seesaw class.  Let me know if you have any questions.

    Another paper that was given yesterday was a permissions slip to our salmon hatchery field trip, which will be on October 3rd.  Please let me know if you are interested in chaperoning.  Chaperones must first submit background checks. Permission slips may be returned to school no later than September 20th

    In reading, students are continuing to learn the routines of reader’s workshop.  They are also learning about selecting a “just-right book” (one that is not too challenging, but not too easy).  They are doing a great job practicing strategies for staying engaged with their books.

    In writing, students are working hard to build their writing stamina.  For this week and next week, students will continue to learn about routines during writing time and how to use our various writing tools.

    In math, we have begun our first module, which is all about multiplication!  Students are learning about different ways to represent multiplication and division problems.  This we will be something we will continue to work on throughout the year. 

    Lastly, in science, your students are learning about salmon!  So far, your third graders are examining and recording the differences between male and female Coho salmon.  Later this week, they will learn about the salmon’s anatomy.

    I also want to give a friendly reminder to please have your child bring in headphones in a labeled Ziploc bag.  They will need these for computer time, which will begin soon.

    Upcoming Events:
    Salmon Hatchery Field Trip—October 3rd
    Teacher Work Day—No Students—October 14th

    As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

    Best,

    Hello Families,

    I’m really enjoying working with and getting to know your students.  We have an awesome class and are accomplishing a lot each day!

    In reading, students are learning the routines of reader’s workshop.  Students are welcome to bring a book from home to read at school if they would like!

    In writing, students are working hard to build their writing stamina.  For this week and next week, students will mostly be learning about routines during writing time and how to use our various writing tools.

    In math, your third graders are learning how to have a growth mindset and how to do various math routines.  We will start Module 1 next week, which will be all about multiplication!

    If you plan to volunteer at our school this year, please be sure to fill out the volunteer application form.  We will have our first field trip to the Salmon Hatchery on Thursday, October 3rd.  If you are interested in chaperoning the field trip, you must first have your application completed and reviewed.  This can take several weeks to process.  Please see the attachment for directions on how to do this.  I will provide more information about volunteering and the field trip during Curriculum Night.

    Lastly, we will soon begin to use technology in our class! Please have your child bring in headphones in a labeled Ziploc bag sometime next week.  They will need these for when we use laptops.
    I look forward to seeing many of you at Curriculum Night next week! If you are unable to attend, please let me know so that I can send home information and forms with your child.

    Upcoming Events:
    Curriculum Night—Sept. 11th (6:00-7:00pm)
    Salmon Hatchery Field Trip—October 3rd 

    Best,
