Grade 3'sI am working on getting students to be responsible about their planner/agenda.They are to show me right away if there is a message for me. They are to ask you to sign each night they read. They write in their spelling marks on the first day of the week. Their spelling list is to be placed in their front pocket on the first day of the week. Any homework written on the board is to be copied into their agenda if they haven't finished. You can help me by asking to see their agenda and by knowing that if I haven't signed that day, I did not see your child's agenda.
We are working on Mental Math- strategies for your child to know their basic facts without relying on their fingers. It is vitally important the students know their basic addition and subtraction facts to 20. Check out how your child does with this.
In Language Arts we are working on reading comprehension,finding word meanings from context clues, main idea, characters, setting. We are learning to look up vocabulsry words in a dictionary and select appropriate definitions to match our story.
In Science we are studying rocks and minerals and are currently looking at soil.
Library is on Thursdays.
Home Reading should be 15 minutes out loud to a parent each night or as close to it as your family can manage. Please listen for expression,stopping at punctuation and word recognition. Feel free to help with any words they have difficulty with and let me know if selections are too easy or too hard for your child.
If you need to contact me, call the school and leave a message or email me at Carmen.Reece@ghsd75.ca. Remember that sometimes I only have the chance to check my email at night -especially on supervision days -so make sure they are not time sensitive.
I have a couple of students with allergies that I'm aware of but please do let me know about any medical conditions/medications that your students have.
Spelling information is located on a link to the right hand side. I am 3B this year so 3AHome is a misprint and will direct you back to my main page.
