Hello Third Grade Families,

Another busy week! Spring pictures, Dr. Suess's birthday, emergency drills, and new seating. We definitely had lots of action! Students did a great job practicing safety this week with the earthquake, fire, and lockdown drills. I am very proud of them! We celebrated Dr. Seuss today with pajamas and lots of Suess reading. In case you haven't heard, we have started a flexible seating arrangement in Room 21. Students no longer have the traditional assigned desks and are now able to move around and select seating they feel works best for them. This is still very new, but so far kids really love the open feel and choice. 
Field trip to the farm is next Wednesday! We will be boarding buses around 8:45 AM and returning around 11:00 AM. We will be back in time for lunch. Be sure to check the weather and have kiddos dress accordingly. If you are interested in coming with us let me know! 

Math- We are busy working on area and perimeter! This has been really fun. Some students have really found ways to challenge themselves with complex shapes. We are continuing to work on story problems as well, keep practicing at home with real world scenarios (example: flooring for area and fencing for perimeter).

Reading- This week in literacy we finished up our book clubs and completed book reports. We also did a mini-project where student partners took turns teaching grammar concepts.

Writing- How-to projects and speeches are complete! Wow! Students have made so much growth in their presenting skills. It was so fun seeing them as teachers. :)

Social Studies- We learned about the five regions of Oregon and explored our coastal region. We learned some of the natural resources, industries, and attractions found in the region. Next week the valley!
