The Weeks of May 15-26th

Dear Parents,

I  hope all of the moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day! The poem your child  wrote for you was based on  a book I read to them called, Love That Dog, by Sharon Creech. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. There is a part that makes me tear up every time. The poem is filled with figurative language and hopefully captured clear ideas to show you how much your child loves you.

After the busy days of last week, this week looks like a regular pace.

Dates to Remember:

Students can enter the contest to design the Jog-a-thon tshirt and poster. The due date is June 2nd. Please submit all entries to the office. We brainstormed in class and started design ideas. Some students have finished their design and have turned it into the office already. Students can submit more than one entry. Good luck to all of the third graders. Last year several third grade ideas were used for the tshirt and poster.

Reading and Writing- The students are reading the classic book, Charlotte’s Web and writing about the themes, character traits, and reading comprehension questions.

The students are also reading 2 books from the author, Mike Thaler, the writer of the black lagoon stories. The students are writing their own black lagoon story.

Math- Perimeter and Area The students are comparing distance around an object and on the surface of objects.

Geography- Students are reviewing and studying the last 20 states on the east coast. All 50 states are known by their location on the map.

Have a wonderful week. Please email questions to me.

Thank you,

Lisa Castillo
