Valentine’s Day Party – Feb. 14

We will be having a Valentine’s Day party on Wed. Feb. 14.  We will need treats and drinks, as well as cups, plates and napkins and volunteers who would like to come help.  If you are interested in helping out, please go to this link to sign up to help in our room.

Valentines Class List

I am sending home a class list of students in our room for students to use when they’re making their Valentine’s at home for the party.

Class Dojo Points

There have been some students struggling lately with talking out and not always following directions.  As a consequence, several students lost Class Dojo points this week.  If you are signed up for Class Dojo, please make sure you check the students’ points each week to see how they are doing.


We are working on place value, like representing numbers as hundreds, tens and ones.  We have been working on using base-10 blocks like hundred-squares, 10-sticks and ones to build numbers.  Coming up, we will work on expanded form and comparing numbers (like greater than and less than).

Multiplication Practice

We do daily fact practice tests and the kids have been working their way through their facts, from addition to subtraction.  Now many of the students are in the multiplication fact tests.  These students could use extra practice at home with these facts as they can get difficult to memorize.  For extra practice, they can do the tests on the Lucas Lodge just like we do in school.  You can also help them with flashcards or just going over the facts with them in other ways.  It is a great help to them in third grade.
