3B and 3D News

March 31st - April 4th

Math

WOW: prime


This week in math we will be working on prime and composite figures.


We will also be studying measurement. Learners will discuss standard units of measurement like feet, inches, yards and miles. Students will participate in a measurement Olympics where they will do various activities to put their measurement skills to the test!


Homework is in the folders this week. Please remind your student to complete the entire sheet and return it Friday. We have had several students not completing/turning it in. I am available throughout the week to help if needed.

English Language Arts

We have finished going over the released STAAR test. I know that reviewing it has been very beneficial and learners have some skills and strategies they did not have before! We will continue to complete some practice passages for the next few weeks so your child will be ready on April 23rd!


For reading, learners will continue with their book clubs! Have you asked your kiddo about these? Each child chose a book and was put into groups with other kids who chose that book. They read a chapter individually and then write a summary, thoughts and questions, and vocabulary words from that chapter. After that, they meet as a group and discuss the chapter.


This week, we will also participate in Daily 5 to practice our skills.

Science

This week in science we will be exploring matter, mass, volume and density. We will discuss the different states of matter and be linking what we learn in science to the math we are learning this week!
