Did you know that you can check your child’s grades through the Parent Portal on the VCS Website?

Your student can even log into their vportal account and check their grades there as well if you do not remember your parent portal password. Your child knows how to log in to their vportal, they do it every day. Ask them to show you their grades!

** We will have a small Valentines Card Exchange on Friday, February 14th during the last part of the day. If you would like to participate, please send in a card for all students in the class. We have 18 students in our class. 

*** Keep studying your multiplication facts nightly! Students need to have all facts memorized by end of the year.

Math Learning Targets: MAFS.3.NF.1.3 Students will explain the equivalence of fractions and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.

Math Activities: Student will be continuing to practice ways to determine if fractions are equivalent and how to compare the size of fractions. Students will be playing board games and memory match games to solidify skills.

IXL W11-15, X1-4

Science Learning Targets:  

SC.3.P.10.2: Students will recognize that energy has the ability to cause motion or create change. 

Science Learning Targets: SC.3.P.10.4 – Demonstrate that light can be reflected, refracted, and absorbed.


Science Learning Activities: Students will be reviewing energy and light. They will take a VST (Volusia Science Test) on energy.

Science Vocabulary:

Light energy- energy that can be seen. Light energy can move through space.

Mechanical energy- energy of motion: potential (stored energy) and kinetic (motion)

Sound energy- energy made be vibration

Thermal energy- energy of heat

Electrical energy- energy that usually flows through wires, when electrons move from one place to another.

Reflection: light bounces off an object

Refraction: light is bent or slows down when it passes through an object

Absorb: light is taken in by an object

Shadow: a dark place created when light is blocked by an object
