March 23, 2018

Hello from 3-AC!

Thank you to all of you for signing up for conferences, I will see you next Monday or Tuesday! Please remember there is no school on those days, school will resume on Wednesday, March 28th, and then there will be Spring Break from April 2-6.

Next week is Spirit Week:

Wednesday, March 28
NEON DAY – dress in bright neon colors
Thursday, March 29
Homeroom Battle of the Themes –
3-AC will wear all white (Storm Troopers) and Mrs. Costa will wear all black (Darth Vader) 
Friday, March 30
House Color Challenge –
Wear your house color shirt
Reading:  We have been comparing and contrasting non-fiction animal books by writing the topic, main idea and details for a chosen section. First, we practiced together, then in partners, then the students completed the process independently. Recently we started comparing and contrasting fiction stories by the same author.
Writing: 3-AC have begun a new unit, Literary Non-Fiction stories, where students plan out a fiction story using the story elements, and then insert facts about that topic. The goal is to eventually create a digital story book, like the ones shared with us this morning by 9-10th grade students from the High School.
Math: We have been practicing drawing pictures, writing numbers, number lines and explaining fractions. Next week on Thursday we will get into the kitchen to use our fraction skills and bake some goodies!
Social Studies: We are wrapping up our culture unit with our inquiry projects, and are beginning our Space and Place unit soon.
