        It’s already March and spring is just around the corner! The second marking period will come to an end, and report cards will be distributed to the students on March 16, 2018.  Parent Conference Night is on March 19, 2018.  Appointments are usually made by the classroom teachers.  If you would like to request a conference, please contact me.

      The third graders will be busy during the month of March. In reading, the students will continue to read informational texts.  Our focus is identifying the main idea(s) and supporting details, synthesizing, summarizing, and questioning the text.  The students are also responding, in writing, to open-ended questions.  Please continue to encourage your child to read at home for 20-30 minutes.  Reading at home truly makes a difference!  Also, please don't forget to have your child complete Mrs. Drenzek’s Reading Journey by the end of each month.

        In math, the students just finished Unit 5 “Understanding Area and Perimeter”.  They are now working on Unit 6 “Reasoning about 2-Dimentional Shapes”. In this unit the students will identify solid figures and describe their attributes.  They will also identify and classify polygons and angles in relation to right angles.

      The students are continuing to work towards mastery of multiplication and division facts from 0-12.  Please continue to help your child practice these math facts daily at home.Xtra Math is a great resource to utilize toward achieving multiplication and division fact mastery.

      Mackrille school will be hosting Health Habits Night on March 22, at 6:30 P.M.  There will be different activities in the gym where families can rotate through events to learn about healthy habits, food choices and exercise.
