Our LAST MAP test is tomorrow! It is the math assessment! Please encourage your child to be diligent and take his/her time! I know these are long, but they can do it! If they get to a hard one, remind them to just figure out what they do know! They have worked very hard on these and done great! I try to keep it calm and stress less, but sometimes the students are just so hard on themselves!
Friday we will be have a special RBES Rocket Relay at 1:30pm. This will be our own school wide Relay for Life! Each grade level will complete a lap to a special grade level song! PLEASE HAVE YOUR CHILD WEAR HIS/HER RELAY FOR LIFE T-SHIRT IF THEY HAVE ONE!
"Show What You Know Week!" aka...CRCT.
It’s here! It’s almost time! APRIL 28 - May 2 is “Show What You Know” week and this class is going to do amazing!
I’m not concerned about your children! Instead of spending ONE SECOND stressed or worried, I want them to walk into this room confident and proud of what they have learned in third grade. We are going to do some showing off in this room and be PROUD of it! As a matter of fact, we don’t even say the "C" word....it is called "show what you know!" I have some special ticket drawings and raffles to share to help us celebrate our learning this week, and we will have some great snacks. Others may be stressed and worried but we are E-X-C-I-T-E-D! What an opportunity to show all that you know!

Math - We have practice on identifying the units of measure for mass and liquid capacity. We will also work on identifying the area and perimeter of irregular shapes. I hope to have the measurement/elapsed time assessment next Tuesday or Wednesday!
Reading/Science: ELA3R3 – RL 1, 2, 3 This week we have worked some more on book Judy Moody Saves the World. This novel ties with our pollution standards from Science. While reading we will really focus on referring to the text and identifying main ideas and supporting details of each chapter. Students will also review prefix, suffixes, and root words.
We will spend a little time this week and next with some test prep strategies and provide time to help students practice bubbling answers and REFERRING TO THE TEXT!
**Don't forget, in your child's agenda is their Online Assessment login information for CRCT practice. If you or your child would like some extra practice this is a good place to start!
Homework for this week

*Read for 20 min a night or 80 min a week - Use the Lyndon Johnson biography or newspaper for this reading. If your child didn't get a book, we will give him/her one later this week.
