Michele Koselke

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Hi!  Welcome to Mrs. Koselke's Third Grade Class!​​

​      I'm so excited to be working with this class! We plan on having a fun year! Please check the planner each night, sign, and make sure your child has completed the homework. Please send a message through dojo​​, email, or write on the page that your child had difficulty so I can go over the lesson with them.
     Please remember that changes in dismissal must be made in writing! So you may dojo the message or write it in the planner! :)
    Students have been excited to trade their chair for a yoga ball if they are highest points earners on Dojo!
     AR-​Your child should read every night. They will have a semester goal to achieve, while working on their yearly goal of 100 points! 
I  will be giving each student their reading range and their AR goal. They are given a minimum of 20 minutes in school. There will be an AR party at the end of each quarter to celebrate those that have made their goal. Kara, Alexis, and Justin have made their goal!

Students with the most Dojo points each day will get their name on the board. On Fridays, those five students will get the reading lounge to themselves. This week's highest point earners were: Alexis, Caden, and Kara.

​We will be reading our story called, "Penguin Chick." This week's story is on youtube. I will also assign it through Pearson, so it can be accessed through the launchpad. As always, students are welcome to take their reading book home if they prefer. We will be working on main idea and details. We will complete a study guide the day before the test. It will be sent home. Please review it for weekly success on the test. In Grammar, we will identify simple sentences and compound sentences. For the spelling pattern, we will be looking at words that have v/cv and vc/v patterns.​ These skills are also listed in the planner.


There will be a nightly homework sheet. There is a link on this website to help explain the lesson if there is some confusion. We will begin learning division.This will include a number of strategies to use. Students will learn and practice the various strategies, but will not be tested on them. We need to memorize multiplication facts through 12!
