Hello wonderful 3rd grade families!
    Where has the 3rd 9 weeks gone? February went by in a flash! We have 2 weeks until Spring Break with a lot of learning still happening.
 We are working on Text and Graphic features within nonfiction text, why authors included them in the text, and how they help us as readers.  Our test will be Monday 2/26. There is a study guide available on my study guide/parent letter page. We have already started working on our next reading skill of finding main idea/details in non-fiction test. That test is scheduled for Wednesday 3/7. We will continue to practice skills such as using context clues to figure out what unfamiliar words mean.  We will also be using what we have practiced about sequencing and summarizing, character relationships and the changes they undergo to now help us make inferences about characters.  We are using the details from the text, combined with what we already know, to help us draw conclusions. 
 
For Social Studies the students will be reading nonfiction texts such as biographies, and learning about famous American heroes, inventors, politicians, scholars, etc.  As we learn about these important people that changed history, we will be using text and graphic features to help us research. We will be working with partners in class to create "Wanted" posters on an important/famous person the week of 2/26-3/2. A Bio in a Bag project will be assigned the week of 2/26. It will be due no later than Wednesday 3/7.
 As always, we will continue to spend time discussing classroom and school expectations, and what it means to have GREAT EXPECTATIONS in our school.

STAAR Parent Letter from our Counselor

Hello Parents

Our 3rd and 4th grade students will take the STAAR Math test on Monday May 14th and the STAAR Reading test on Tuesday May 15th. Our students have been working hard all year and we are confident they will do great!

A few reminders for testing days

-No backpacks. Please leave backpacks at home. Students will not need their backpack on test days. 

-No cell phones or smart watches. Please do not send cell phones or smart watches to school with your student on test day. If your student needs to have a cell phone, it must be turned off and will be held, by the teacher, until the end of the day.

-Please send a sack lunch with your student or they may purchase a sack lunch from the cafeteria on testing days.

-Please be sure your student gets a good night’s sleep, eats breakfast, and arrives to school ON TIME. Breakfast will be available in the cafeteria on testing days.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to 2 great days of testing where we expect that our 3rd and 4th grade students will shine and show what they know with great success!
