One more week of Parent/Teacher Conferences, early dismissal this week.
The Walk-a-Thon is on Saturday, March 23rd. The class with the most participation gets a pizza party, so mark your calendar! There is a drink & snack donation for the Walk-a-Thon happening now! You can drop-off your drink/snack donations in the wagon by the office.
If you are trying to log into Zearn or Jiji, first your student needs to log in to Google Chrome with their whole school email and password. Then to get to the Noddin symbaloo page go to: https://www.symbaloo.com/embed/usdnoddin1
Language Arts: The students have been reading a lot of non-fiction texts, books, and articles. The students will be working on informational writing this trimester. They should have shown you their Google Slide Presentation about a person, animal, or topic they picked.
Your child should be reading at home for at least 20 minutes every day after school. Please check that they are reading one whole book before starting a new one. When they finish a book at home, then they should let me know so they can take an AR quiz at school. Please check in with them to be sure they are reading and understanding their at-home chapter book. Ask them about the main character, the setting, and/or what’s happening in the story.
Your student can login to Lexia (Core 5 on symbaloo) at home to practice their grammar and reading skills.
Math: The students are working in Module 5. This Module covers fractions. They will be recognizing equivalent fractions, comparing them, and putting them on number lines. They will also be adding fractions with the same denominators.
If your child has not yet memorized the times tables up to the 12s, please practice the times and division facts until they become automatic. This will be very important for 4th grade. I cannot stress the importance of this enough.
They can log into Zearn or Jiji at home. Zearn has videos, games, and practice that follow the Eureka math curriculum. They can also do Prodigy at home too.
Science: The students will be learning about potential and kinetic energy, and forces.
Social Studies: The students will be learning about the Bay Area, symbols of America, and history of California.
