Ms. Kramr's 3rd Grade Newsletter

Feb. 22-26

What we are learning this week...

Reading: Students will continue to use text to dig through nonfiction text. Students will also be using text evidence to target key information in difficult texts.



Writing: Students finalize the write-up pertaining to their research of their country. We also begin planning a personal narrative. Each student will contribute this story to a class published book with an illustration.



Math: We will be starting Unit 13 in math. Students will learn strategies to solve x3 and x6 multiplication problems. Students will also continue to solve division problems.



Science:Students will be exploring characteristics of inherited traits such as number of limbs, and recognize learned behaviors.



Social Studies: We will learn about heroes in our culture which include artists, first responders, and public figures.
