Daddy daughter dance- February 10th (this Saturday) in the BCE cafeteria
Math- This week we are starting our unit on shapes. Students will have learned a lot about shapes in 2nd grade, but we are going to dive deep into what classifies quadrilaterals, polygons, parallelograms, and 3D shapes.
Language arts-In language arts this week we get to visit the book fair twice! Once today to make a wish list and again tomorrow to make a purchase if they brought money. We are also starting our unit on procedural writing so we will focus a lot of "how to" do things this week along with our continued study of nonfiction.
Spelling- This week is the suffixes -er and -est for comparative and superlatives. Remember, when the word has a short vowel you double the last consonant before adding the suffix, and if it ends in y, you change the y to an i before adding the suffix.
Science- We are making our solar system models and researching individual planets.
