Both vocabulary knowledge and understanding of the text will be assessed on the first Friday. The second week will focus on spelling, grammar, and writing skills. Spelling words and grammar will be assessed on the second Friday of our story. In addition, students will explore phonetic patterns each week. Please note that vocabulary words are listed in the graphic below.

 

Weekly Reading Assignment

This homework assignment was sent home on Friday, October 15th. Please stress the skills of reading the story and looking back in the story to answer the questions. Thank you!

Third Grade Homework due 10/28/2021


Halloween Celebration

Parade

Time to get those costumes on the kids and come on down to Arno on Oct. 29 at 10:00 for our annual Halloween Parade.  Our route will take us out of the 5th grade doors that morning, making a loop on the inside perimeter of the playground.  Please join us around the outside perimeter of the playground for the best seats, unfortunately we will not be allowing classroom visits that day.  It is a district PD day with an 11:30 dismissal that morning.

Classroom Treat

As usual, your child should pack a healthy snack to enjoy during our daily snack time. Students may choose to also bring in a prepackaged treat/candy for their classmates to take home. Each class has 26 students.


Chromebooks

Students have been given their district provided chromebooks. These chromebooks should be charged and ready to go for the next day! It is very difficult to charge all 25 chromebooks in the classroom since we are limited on outlets, and spacing.

Please make sure that the chromebooks are put back in their backpacks to bring back to school EACH DAY! Coming to school without the chromebook makes in-class activities difficult to complete if the students do not have the necessary materials. We do have 2 classroom Chromebooks that can be used in an emergency! But something to keep in mind: if 4 students forget their chromebook, 2 isn’t enough to solve the problem! Please help your child remember the necessary materials while they get back into a routine!


PBIS Monthly Reward

The October PBIS Monthly Reward is HAT DAY on Thursday, October 28th. Students who had 6 or fewer color changes and did not visit the office for behavior will be allowed to wear a hat to school on Thursday!


Parent Connect

Did you know that you can  check to see if they are turning in work and view your child’s grades through Parent Connect?  It is a great way to check and make sure that when you child tells you they don’t have any homework – they really don’t have any homework!  If you need PIN and password, contact Mrs. Cathy Anderson in the school office!

Info on Parent Connect from the district website:

  • You must have a PIN and Password to log into ParentConnection.
  • ParentConnection is a web program that allows parents to view information about their child.
  • To receive a PIN and passwords for ParentConnection contact your child’s school.
  • If you have more than one account to view your children, please contact the school office.
  • Make sure to insert your email after logging into ParentConnection.  Inserting your email will allow you to access the automated password reminder system

We will be updating the grades in the gradebook throughout the week. Please be sure to check in and see how your child is doing with the content and work completion.

If you find your child is struggling with work completion or any particular skill, feel free to take advantage of FREE tutoring. Further information is given in the flyer below.

ReflexMath

Please remember that mastery of multiplication and division facts is the goal for the end of third grade. The report card will be marked accordingly. Students should be completing a session of ReflexMath daily. We try to fit it in during the school day, but this is not always possible. Please remind your child after school in case it hasn’t been completed yet for the day. So far, here are the classroom stats:

 

Congratulations goes out to Vera G! She mastered all of her addition and subtraction facts this past week. She will move on to multiplication and division. Keep up the great work, Vera!


Masks

Please remind your child to pack an extra mask or 2 in his/her backpack. We do have extras in the classrooms but we have been going through them very quickly. If you would like to donate  masks to our classrooms, we would very grateful. Thank you for your help!


Summer Reading Program Participants

Kudos to our third grade Summer Reading Program participants. They will receive McDonald’s lunch with Mr. Zielinski!

Weekly Reading Assignment

Part of being in the upper elementary is getting more responsibilities.  So, this Friday, October 8th students will be having “Homework”. This typically will be a short story with five multiple choice questions.  It may vary down the road.  Please feel free to review and/or assist your child with this assignment.  If you could stress “looking back” as one of the strategies to help your child, that would be great! It will be corrected on the following Friday so if they want to turn it in earlier, that’s fine.

Social Studies

Our third grade social studies curriculum involves the study of Michigan.  To enhance our learning, we will have the Metro Parks of Michigan come out to present to our students.  The programs “People of the Three Fires,” “French Voyageurs,” and “Timber!” fit well into our curriculum and are very appropriate for third graders.  Through their mobile learning center, all of these programs are available to come to our school so that we do not have to pay the transportation expense.  The presenters bring materials that enhance the learning for the theme.

The cost for all three presentations will be a total of $5 per child.  There is no permission slip or chaperones necessary because we are not leaving the school grounds.

The Huron-Clinton Mobile Learning Center will be here on October 28th for the “People of the Three Fires” presentation, November 30th for the “French Voyageurs” presentation, and December 16th for “Timber!”. Please turn in $5 by October 4th so we can secure our reserved dates.

A special thank you to the Allen Park Presbyterian Church for a donation to bring down the cost of the presentations.


Message from the Lunch Lady…

We are experiencing a lot of students coming in with their own lunches, but no drinks. Please remember to put money into their child’s account (link below) if they want to purchase a milk or a juice. Milk and juice is only free to those who are ordering full lunches. Thank you.

We would also like to remind our families to fill out the free and reduced lunch applications- even though it’s free for all students this year, the number of approved applications help determine how much Title I (federal dollars for at risk) the building receives. We have included the link you need below.

Free and Reduced Application


Arno Fun Run

The Arno Fun Run will take place on Friday, September 24th. Each class will run on the blacktop during their designated time. The third grade is scheduled as follows: Mrs. Kalis at 1:20-1:35, Mrs. Guyot at 1:35-1:50, and Mrs. Warneck at 1:50-2:05. If you would like to volunteer to help with this even, please click on the link below to sign up. Please remind your child to wear tennis shoes and dress accordingly on the day of our event. Water bottles containing plain water are strongly encouraged.

PBIS Expectations

Within the whirlwind of the first week of school, we discussed and practiced our PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) expectations for the office, classroom, hallway, bathrooms, playground, and cafeteria. The students came up with many examples, as well as non-examples, of expected behavior at all of these locations. We are confident that our third graders will continue to be respectful, responsible, and safe throughout the coming months. Students who continue with great behavior throughout the year will be rewarded weekly and monthly.


Math in Focus Chapter 1: Numbers to 10,000

Students have learned how to count, read, and write numbers up to 1,000 in Grade 2. In this chapter, students will learn how to count, read, and write numbers up to 10,000. Base-ten blocks are used to develop the association the physical representation of the number, the number symbol, and the number word. Base-ten blocks also support students in counting by ones, ten, hundreds, and thousands.

Students are shown concrete representations with place-value charts and strips showing thousands, hundreds, tens, and ones for numbers to 10,000. Given any 4-digit number, students will identify the place value of each digit in the number, and express the number in standard, word, and expanded forms. Students are encouraged to compare and verbally describe sets of numbers using the terms least and greatest. Using these skills, they will write numbers in increasing or decreasing order. Finally, students will apply the number and place-value concepts to identify and complete number patterns and find missing numbers on a number line.


English Language Arts

In third grade we will use an anchor text for 2 weeks. In the first week, students will use the text to build vocabulary knowledge as well as utilize comprehension strategies. Both vocabulary knowledge and understanding of the text will be assessed on the first Friday. The second week will focus on spelling, grammar, and writing skills.

Weekly Reminders

  1. Students should bring charged chromebooks to school each day.
  2. Water bottles are helpful to stay hydrated. These should only contain plain water.
  3. Wear rubber-soled tennis shoes on gym days in order to participate.
  4. Students may bring a small snack to enjoy before recess. The snack should be one portion due to limited eating time.
  5. If it is supposed to sprinkle or light rain, we will still be going outside. Your child may want to bring an umbrella or wear a rain coat on these days.

Third Grade Beats the Heat!

It was 90 degrees on Tuesday! Therefore, the students had the opportunity to cool down at recess with freeze pops and/or a spray from the hose!

       


Boccabella Park

On Tuesday, June 8th, the third graders will be walking back and forth to Boccabella Park. Students will have the opportunity to play and be kids! We will eat snack and lunch at school. We will not be eating at Boccabella Park. However, every student will need to bring a water bottle labeled with his/her name. Thank you!
