Butler, J

Welcome to Mrs. Butler's

3rd Grade Realm

Dear Families,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Spring break!  Even though the temperatures were on the chilly side and I didn't expect to see snow, it was a good time for all of us to recharge our batteries and move forward.  (To me, this year is going really fast!)

In May, students will be given the M-Step test from the State of Michigan Education Dept.  Third grade students will be assessed in ELA and Math.  We will review the skills that we have worked on throughout the year, both in class and with homework. 

Update about Weekly Homework

  • Students have been given new Reading Logs for the Month of April.The first one is due next Monday, April 16, 2018.
  • I will no longer be giving students Home Math Logs.(Please continue to practice multiplication and division facts at home regularly, and we will also practice in class.)Instead, I will be giving Weekly Writing Assignments.
  • This Week's Writing Assignment is to write an opinion piece.I am attaching specific directions for this assignment to this Week's Progress Report.  (I also added to this website.  You can find it at the bottom of the English Language Arts link on the left)

In Social Studies, we will be working on Chapter 5, starting at Lesson 5.

In Science, we completed our unit about Weather.  We are starting a unit about Habitats, Environments, and Survival.

Erving will be collecting Box Tops for Education all year long.  Students can bring them into class at anytime.   Thank you for your support! 

My best,

Mrs. J. Butler
