Mrs. Solis' 3rd Grade Class

January 19 - 22, 2016

What we are learning next week:

Math- In math we will be expanding our knowledge about fractions to include equivalent fractions and comparing fractions with different denominators.

Reading- Students will use a flexible range of strategies to monitor and construct meaning across a variety of genres.

Science- We are developing our understanding of food chains. We are learning the sequence of a food chain and the roles of producers and consumers within a habitat/environment.

Social Studies- We are finishing our research and working on making a timeline of the important events their person did. The focus is on how they helped to shape community.

Writing- In writing we are continuing with Imaginative stories. We have worked on strong settings, strong catchy leads, and how to write an ending. We will be focusing on revising and editing practice to prepare for the upcoming Grammar DCA.


Study for MATH TEST! Play geometry math games (on google classroom and in email sent earlier this week).

Read 20 minutes a night.


I submitted a project on Donor's Choose ( and it was funded! Thank you to Eera's parents for contributing. Our class will soon have a class set of headphones to use with laptops.


I won a grant for alternative seating for our classroom from the Kappa Lambda Chapter of The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, an organization of key women in education. I received a check for $250 in December. I have ordered a class set of yoga balls. Students will have the choice of a yoga ball or a chair at their desk.
