I have been part of the Garfield family for many years now, first as a parent, then as a para educator, and now as a teacher. I love connecting with students and helping them feel valued and successful. This year, in addition to academics, our class is focusing on social skills like building empathy and accepting diversity so that we can make a difference in our world.     ---Rebecca Porter

MATH
We are learning strategies to perform 3-digit addition and subtraction problems. Ask your student about addition strategies like

give and take, splitting, stacking, or the number line.


READING
In reading we are reviewing important strategies like identifying the problem/solution and main idea/supporting details. We are working on finding text evidence to support our answers.

WRITING
We have started a narrative writing project about what it would be like to be stuck in a snow globe. (Brrrrr!)

SCIENCE
We just kicked off our biome study. Soon students will be researching a biome of their choice on the computer.

SOCIAL STUDIES
We are finishing up state report research. There is a great song called "Tour the States"you can play to help your student learn the states and capitols.

Mark Your Calendar
Our 3rd grade winter concert is on Thursday, December 6th at 6:30. Please meet us in the pod at 6:15.

Our class will be having a Winter celebration the last day before Winter break. I will be providing hot chocolate. If you would like to contribute mini marsh mellows, whip cream, candy canes, or another nut-free snack, the kids and I would appreciate it!
