Learning Update

Mystery Readers!

Last Minute Mystery Reader Opportunity for anytime this week!

In our classroom this week, we have the opportunity to participate in a student-favorite: Mystery Readers!

All week, we will host parents, grandparents, siblings, neighbors, etc. to bring in and read aloud a favorite picture book to the class. Students love when their family members are the Mystery Reader and all students benefit from an adult sharing their love of reading.

Because this is a mystery, all information must be kept TOP SECRET from your child, including the date you are coming and the picture book you will be reading.  To make it fun I will ask for five clues about yourself. These clues will be read to the class before your arrival to build suspense and keep the students guessing about who our Mystery Reader will be!

Please send me an email (cdenson@sis.org.cn) if you would like to schedule a time to come in and read to 3A this week.

Let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to seeing you in class this year!

Sincerely,

Mr. Denson

Learning Update

Mathematicians will begin to understand the concept of greater than and less than when comparing fractions. As they study and compare different fractions, students continue to reason about their size. They develop the understanding that the numerator or number of copies of the fractional unit does not necessarily determine the size of the fraction.

As writers this week we will be continuing to move through the writing process within our Narrative Nonfiction books.  Our writing community is using so much creativity within this unit to both teach and entertain their reader!  We can’t wait to share these with you once back from Spring break!

Readers will be celebrating book week by focusing on the love of reading, all that reading teaches us and the connections reading allows us to make.  Reading will be mixed into every aspect of the day with special author visits, mystery readers, activities at recess and read alouds in class.

As inquires we will continue to explore ways to take action by sharing our learning with each other. We will have an in-house gallery walk where students can show off their hard work and enjoy the work of their friends in all of third grade.

3C is taking action by supporting WWF with a bake sale!
