BLUEBIRD RANCH Update

BLUEBIRD RANCH
3rd Grade
Room B8
2017-2018
 
CAASPP testing will continue through next week.  During testing, it is helpful to make sure your child receives plenty of sleep and eats a healthy breakfast before school.  Thank you! 
 
Students are working on completing four book reports by May 18th.  Students that complete all four book reports will get to participate in a class lunch bunch!  Students will get to eat together in the classroom to celebrate their efforts.  Many students have all ready completed the required book reports.  Thanks for your support in helping them reach this goal!
 
In math, students have just finished Unit 7 (Fractions).  Please continue to encourage your child to continue to practice their multiplication/division facts as often as possible.
 
In social studies, students are learning about the famous landmarks and symbols of the United States and California.  It is a fun unit and students love to learn all about this topic.
 
In science, students just finished learning about programming patterns in PLTW.  Students have enjoyed working with an app called Hopscotch and the website Scratch.  It is amazing how quickly third graders pick up programming skills!
 
In reading, students are continuing with the new reading series, Benchmark Advance.  Students are continually reading non-fiction and fiction passages throughout the series.  We will continue learning how to annotate the text and identify main idea, key details, and cause and effect.   
 
Students have enjoyed learning how to use the Chromebooks and have been working in Google Classroom for Bluebird Ranch.  Students sometimes take short quizzes through Google Classroom.  Parent can see the results of their child's quiz.  Just ask your child how to sign on to their portal and they can show you what they've been working on.  They thoroughly enjoy this experience as it builds their computer skills and helps develop typing skills. 
 
Please click on Links for information regarding on-line resources, such as textbooks.  Also, the workbook pages are on-line so if your child accidentally forgets to tear out their homework page you may access this information via the link.
 
If you need to contact me please email me at kspringsteen@wvusd.k12.ca.us.
 
Please remember that the students will have district P.E. every Monday.  Students should wear appropriate shoes and clothes to be ready to participate in P.E. 
 
Thank you for ensuring that your child completes their nightly homework.  As a class, we complete the homework log together each day and it is to go home in their homework folder and come back to school the next day.  

 
Sincerely,

Mrs. Springsteen
