Butler, J

Welcome to Mrs. Butler's

3rd Grade Realm

Dear Families,

I have analyzed the scores from Lessons 6 through 10.  Beginning this week, there will be 4 Spelling groups (Group A, Group B, Group C, and Group D).  Students will be given a Pre-Test on their group words on Wednesday.  Students who score 100% on the Pre-Test will be given a test on their group's bonus words on Friday.  For those who do not score 100% on the Pre-Test, they will be given the same test again on Friday.  (All spelling lists will be posted here on our classroom website.)

This week, we will resume our regular ELA routine and students will be given the Weekly Test on Friday.

We will be having our next Social Studies Test on Wednesday, December 20, 2017, covering Chapter 3.  I have already posted the Test Review, but it won't be assigned until Monday, December 18, 2017.

It was great to see several of my students at last Friday's Kids Night Out event!  I hope everyone had a great time!

Santa Secret Shop will begin on Monday, December 11, 2017 and be open all week.  Our Class is scheduled to go on Wed., December 13, 2017.  Students will have the option to make purchases that day or browse.  This is another event sponsored by our PTO and parent volunteers are needed, if you are available.  (See the December Erving Newsletter.)

We will be having our Annual Classroom Christmas Party on Thursday, December 21st, beginning at 2:00.  I am looking for two parent volunteers who have an iChat form on file in the office, to help with the party.  If anyone is interested, please let me know below.  (If more than two parents volunteer, names will be drawn randomly.)  For students who have numbers in the range of 9-16, I've attached an extra page to this week's report, requesting party donations. 

I realize that this time of year tends to be very busy for everyone.  As a result, instead of sending home a Math Facts Practice Log for these 2 weeks, I've decided to give the students daily practice sheets to complete in school, based upon their current level.  I still encourage students to practice at home on a regular basis, but I won't be requiring a log for this week and next week.

Many thanks to all who donated crackers to be given to students who do not have a snack.  I am grateful.

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,
