Notes from the teacher:

√ This will be a review week for Reading Unit 1; see Home Fun packets for spelling list.
√ As a whole, the class did poorly on last week on the reading story. Please review the reading story this week with your child- we will be retesting on “My Rows and Piles of Coins” on Friday. The book will be coming home on Tuesday and Thursday as usual.

 Social studies 

o We are continuing to study economic topics: supply/demand, import/export, natural/capital/human resources, etc.


o Describe functions of plant parts
o Look for a study guide this week; test on Friday

o Describe character traits and setting
o “My Rows and Piles of Coins” re-test on Friday.

 A.R. Party 

Your child has the opportunity to attend an Accelerated Reader celebration at the end of October. To attend, they must have 6 AR points. Most of the shorter third grade books count for half a point. Please encourage your child to read every night. They can check out a new book daily!
