Mrs. Woods Notes

Grade 3


Posted: November 5, 2020

Students should be reading (either to themself or to an adult) EVERY NIGHT.  I have sent home a Reading Log and it would be great if the students could record their reading each night and have their parent\guardian sign it nightly.  They can all use the practice with developing fluency in their reading. 

Grade 4 students should be practicing their multiplication facts (Grade 3 will be starting this in the next week)

Spelling words are sent weekly and should be practiced each night.  

A note regarding our Roots of Empathy Program has been sent home (Photo\Video & Artwork\Writing Release Form)...please sign and return asap.

If you have any questions regarding homework, please email me at or call me at the school.

It's been a very busy week so far in our class!

We are excited to announce that some of our chicken eggs have hatched!! We are hoping to see more hatch in the next day or two!

Please be sure to read every night for at least 20 minutes and don't forget to study your Spelling words!

Phys Ed is every Wednesday and Friday...please try to remember to bring Gym clothes!

Thanksgiving dinner will be served tomorrow in the cafeteria.  This is the ONLY meal option.

Hi my awesome Grade 3 students!  Here we are in our final week of Home Learning!  I hope you were able to try some of the activities last week.  I know with the weather gettng nicer, it's harder to concentrate on school work.  Hopefully you are reading every day and finding reasons to write...and practicing the multiplication facts!

I am attaching some ideas for Language Arts and Math, as well as the STEAM activities for this week.  Have fun!
