English Language Arts
In our new unit, students will review telling time, starting with the hour, the half- hour, and then to 5-minute increments. Next, they will be practicing with reading and writing time to the minute on both analog and digital clocks. They will be introduced to a new Work Place game, Tic-Tac-Tock. During one session this week, we will record landmark times on a timeline for students to get a sense of how the time in a day fits together. Students will learn to use a number line to determine the elapsed time of common daily activities and then move into solving problems involving elapsed time.
The 3rd graders will also be introduced to scale and referents while reading and discussing the book Biggest, Strongest, Fastest. Students will dive into understanding the difference between the metric and U.S. customary systems of measurement and then work with metric measures of grams, kilograms, milliliters, and liters.
Please feel free to reference the Unit #4 Bridges Family Unit Overview that will be sent home with students on Monday. It includes the vocabulary, concepts and standards addressed in this new unit.
