September 5, 2017 Dear Third Grade Students and Parents/Guardians, I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day long weekend! Our first two weeks of school passed so quickly! We have been occupied with beginning of the year assessments, routines, and procedures.

Our first topic in math has progressed well, as we learned about multiplication—including skip counting, number lines, and arrays. We began reading Wonder, focusing on the essential elements of a story. Building stamina, reading within reach books, and recording on our reading logs during conferring has been part of our reading workshop model. Crafting true stories is our focus with narrative writing, implementing our writing workshop model. 

As Mr. Gilmore directs us each morning, we are making each day a productive day!

Love, Mrs. Rahman :-)
