We had an awesome week in 3A! Next week is the beginning of Terra Nova testing. We will be starting on Monday and testing every morning for about the next 2 weeks. We try to only do about an hour or so a day so its not so much of a shock to our 3rd graders. Please help them have a good night of sleep each night and also some kind of breakfast. If you want they can bring a snack each day to have in between testing. I told the students that it had to be a snack and not a meal. Something that can be eaten in 5 minutes or so. We are also responsible for the Mass next Wednesday, Sept. 25th at 8:30. All the students in 3A have a part in the Mass. If you can make it we would love to see you there. If your child has a reading part I gave them the reading to practice over the weekend earlier this week. We will practice as a class on Tuesday in the church to also prepare.
What We Did This Week:
We had a fantastic week in 3A! The students worked really hard this week on their English, Social Studies, Reading, and Spelling tests. We also went down to the computer lab to take the Star Math test. We will take this test 2 other times this year to see our growth in Math. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Let us know if you have any questions.

We had a marvelous week in 3A! We finished talking about stations/centers in 3A so the students will be starting them when they are finished with their work. Some examples are stem bins, puzzles, math and reading power pen quizzes, file folder games, art, cursive, word work, and Lego’s. The students are really excited to start these stations when they complete their work. Some had a chance to try them a few times this week. This week we had a chance to go to the computer lab and take the Star Reading Assessment. We will take this test 2 more times later on this year to see how we have grown in reading.
I have started to put grades online now. Some subjects like Art, Cursive, and Religion won’t have any grades till the quarter is almost done. Remember if your child would like to fix an assignment that they have not yet already corrected at school they may correct it and send it back to school to get a 80 percent. They can’t do fix quizzes or test. To check grades online you go to powerschool on the school website to log in.
Next Monday the 3A students will be bringing home a test note for social studies on Monday. They will have a review with it to use to study. The test will be on Wednesday, Sept. 11th over 7 continents, oceans, hemispheres, equator, and prime meridian in case anyone wants to get an early start on studying. Please help them study and sign the test note and return it on Tuesday to school. Only the test note needs to come back signed. Please keep the study guide at home to also study on Tuesday night.
Just a reminder that we will be doing the same story next week along with the same spelling words. In case you have misplaced the spelling list I have listed the words below for you. I hope everyone has a great weekend and I know I am hoping for another Husker win. Let me know if you have any question.
