December Newsletter
Can you believe that we are already in the month of December?  This school year is flying by!  This month will be filled with holiday cheer, magic, and hopefully some snow!    
We will begin our next novel study on Little House in the Big Woods.  We will learn about how life in the 1800's is different from our lives now.  We will continue to discuss story elements and learn new vocabulary words.  The Ingalls family will soon feel like our own family!
In math we will begin learning multiplication!  Arrays, repeated addition, and memorization will help every student begin on the road to becoming a multiplication master!  
In writing we will take our knowledge of sentences and use it to begin writing paragraphs.  We will use the Step-Up to writing stoplight method to begin our paragraph creations.  Ask your child about topic sentences, reasons, details, and conclusions.  
Our social studies adventure will take us to Scandinavia, where we will go A-Viking.  We will be immersed in the Viking culture and learn their language, ways of life, and religious beliefs.  
The spelling lists can be found on the 3rd grade classroom page.  Please refer there to find the list if your child forgets his/hers at school.  Also, this is where you will find the date of the review test.
