   On Wednesday and Thursday (12/12 & 12/13), 3rd grade will be completing their 2nd Benchmark.  This was given as a pretest in August, and now your student will show what he/she knows when it comes to Motion and Matter!  The homework, classwork, investigations, and additional activities have all supported this learning.  
   When working with Standards-based Grading, all these learning opportunities prepare your student for the assessments.  Therefore, please be sure your student is completing these opportunities.  Help your student create flashcards or quiz them throughout the week. Because the Post test/Benchmark takes place at the end of each module, the vocabulary and content must be reviewed repeatedly throughout.
   On Monday and Tuesday (12/10 & 12/11), the students will begin their new FOSS Module: Water and Climate.  There will be some changes during the module due to the updated curriculum we received, but homework will continue each week as it has.  Please continue to check DOJO and here on my class webpage to find updated lessons.

Thank you so much for your amazing support!

Sincerely, 
Bethni Albright
