It’s hard to believe it is April already! The fourth nine weeks is now under way, and the third grade students are working hard in preparation for the upcoming LEAP test! In ELA, the students will be finishing the novel “Treasure Island” and doing lots of LEAP prep work. In Math, we will be reviewing skills already taught, and doing lots of LEAP prep work including taking practice LEAP tests. In Science, we are preparing to take the LEAP field test and wrapping up our unit on the water cycle, clouds, and weather. For Social Studies, we will continue our economics unit and work on LEAP practice sessions.
Look for a field trip notice to come home after spring break for a field trip to go see a play in May. We will not need any chaperones for this field trip.
We know our third graders have worked so hard this year, and they are ready for the LEAP test April 30-May 4. For that week, we are asking that you please make sure you child gets a good nights sleep, eat a nutritious breakfast, and arrives to school on time. Please also leave them in the morning with positive thoughts about how well you know they will do! We know they will succeed!
