Dear C-3 families,

 
Happy Friday!  
 
This week our class: finished reading Charlotte's Web, completed our Charlotte's Web journals, and read through a Reader's Theater version of Charlotte's Web.  Next week, we will be making our paper-mache Wilburs. Please make sure your child turns in their stuffed paper bag by Monday so we can prep it for our paper-mache project.  Thank you!
 
Math - We've had an exciting couple days of math celebrations: Kangaroo Math on Thursday and the third grade Math-a-thon today.  The students did very well!  Please sign and return the math test in your child's Friday Folder.  Our Math Topic 15 (Liquid Volume and Mass) test will on Tuesday.  A practice test will go home Monday. 
 
We start our reading and science unit on Weather and Climate next week.  This is always an exciting learning time for the class.  Be ready to hear your child talk endlessly about the types of clouds they see in the sky and the weather they predict.  You will surely have some fun and interesting conversations.
 
Spelling: affect, certain, computers, Connecticut, covered, crucial, fierce, recommended
 
Vocabulary: climate, elevation, measure, weather, temperature, cumulus, nimbus

Next Friday is a minimum day schedule (8:25-12:30).  The following week is Spring Break!  
 
As always, please do not hesitate to email me with any questions or comments.  Enjoy your weekend!
