Ms. Kramr's 3rd Grade Newsletter

October 12-16

What we are learning this week...

Math
We will begin our investigation of perimeter! Students will learn to measure for perimeter using rulers and grid paper. They’ll also find the missing perimeter using information they have on hand. Ask your child how they would find the perimeter of a shape. *We’ll also review telling time and finding how many hours and minutes are in problems presented.

Reading
We will be learning how to read and analyze narrative poetry. Students will be learning how to identify point of view, characters and plot within a poem.

Science/Soc. St.
In science, we will be introducing changing matter and combining materials. The students will explore with changes from heat and learn about chemical and physical changes to matter. Ask you child what is a chemical/physical change?

Writing

We will be continuing with Poetry. Now that we have learned components of poetry, we will start writing. We will practice writing a narrative poem.
