    READING: In the last few weeks of school, we will be reading Scholastic News publications, which provides informational text reading that provokes thought and inquiry while reading our in-class chapter book read and listen will be The Mouse and the Motorcycle...fun FUn FUN!!!

     WRITING: We continue to make progress with continued practice of the mechanics of writing by utilizing daily editing, response to literature, and a variety of in class writing assignments. Our focus will be Opinion Writing. We will study the art of the "debate" to formulate opinions. With that in place, our opinion writing will develop. Looking forward to this writing unit of study, you know...3rd graders have opinions...right? :)

     MATH: We have completed all of our math units for 3rd grade! For the remaining weeks, we will review everything we have learned. Our last weekly multiplication/division timed test will be on Thursday 5/23..STUDY... and finish like a CHAMPION!

    SOCIAL STUDIES: Temecula History

     P.E.: In the second semester, we will have a PE specialist teaching our students all aspects of physical fitness. I will also be doing something daily to keep our fitness in check!  Our weekly PE minutes (100 minutes a week) will include Fitness and Conditioning outside on the blacktop and on the upper and lower fields (including aerobic conditioning on "ramp and stairs"), and also "Brain Breaks" and GoNoodle - and online mini-fitness program. A Brain Break is taken during the course of the day when there has been extended time sitting in one's seat. This allows the child to "energize" and give the brain a break. GoNoodle sessions are 10 minutes per session. They are perfect for our indoor-rainy-day schedules! Please Google GoNoodle to get a preview of the fun activities we participate in.
