The Unit 8 Fractions Assessment will be Thursday, March 26.
Review packets will go home today.
We also learned 2-digit multiplication using the lattice algorithm. Ask your child to teach you this method.
We will continue to practice and expand our knowledge of multiplication and division throughout the next unit, Unit 7. Please continue to encourage your child to practice his or her multiplication facts each night! Please look for the Unit 7 letter in your child's Take Home folder later this week.

We are Readers and Writers!
Here are techniques we know all opinion writers use:
1. Develop an idea.
2. Write a thesis.
3. Write reasons that support the facts.
4. Consider your audience.
In computer lab, we are publishing our work using PowerPoint. We will show them to you at Expo!
Now that we know how to write speeches, we are using similar skills and strategies to write persuasive letters and petitions.
In Library last week, third graders learned about biographies and chose a famous person to research. In class this week, third graders will read about their famous person and record important facts about him or her. Additionally, the students will read about their famous person for homework each night.
Please remind your child to come to school with his or her biography book each day.
After reading and collecting facts, the students will use their notes to write their own biography book. This project will be completed in school over the course of the next few weeks.
Thank you for your help and support! :)

We are Chemists!
We collected all the data, and now we are ready to make our final predictions. We are creating acrostic and concrete poems to show our predictions and scientific observations.
We can't wait to find out what the mystery chemicals really are. We will find out soon!
