Mrs. Mergenthaler’s Language Arts

Hello Families,

I am your child’s ELA teacher.  We are going to read Read READ this year. All of the 3rd grade teachers are asking that your child reads each night for at least 15 minutes.  Also, please make sure you read and sign your child’s agenda each night.  Most of the children receive a new spelling list each week.  They should bring a copy of those words home on Monday or Tuesday so that you will know what they will be tested on on Friday. Right now, we are reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as a class.  We are focusing on main idea, setting, plot, and theme.

I am also your child’s Science and Social Studies teacher, which we are doing as part of ELA.  We are learning about recycling, agriculture, our government, and character.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you Mrs. M
