Dear Third Grade Families,
This week's Math Story problem will be a continuation of last's week's "Thanksgiving Break Challenge." This week's problem deals with collecting authentic data from a new audience based on a question we are curious about. Students have written their questions, and should collect as many responses from people outside of our classroom as possible. This data collection will be due this Friday! In Mastery, students will organize their data, create a graph of choice to display their data, and finally- analyze the data!
We are eager to figure out our total minutes read as a class for the month of November! I will be collecting any reading logs you have until this Friday! Each student has a personal reading goal for the month, and our class goal for the month is 11,111! Fingers crossed! Beating our goal each month gives us a change to earn a free pizza party sponsored Pizza Hut. Help us read our hearts out this week and turn those reading logs in!
This week in Content, we will be wrapping up our Energy projects and sharing with the class. By Friday we will be moved on to study one of my favorite units- Ancient Greece! We will be learning about the geography, resources, economy, government, art, architecture and major contributions of this ancient civilization. Our culminating project will be a Greco-Roman Festival. More info to come!
Meanwhile, we have been busy planning our own civilization, applying what we learned in Economy. Students voted on the name, the Crozet Claytor Eagles! The eagles started earning CCE bucks this week and will have their first pay day this Friday. In the Tuesday folder you will find a Market Planning Sheet and information sheet/timeline. The next major event on our timeline is turning in our Market Planning Sheet #1 which explains what good or service your child will be producing for our Market and what basic materials they will need, due this Friday. Note: Side #2 will be completed in class and our products will be discussed before production will begin. Our Market will be the morning of December 18. I will be sending information each week until the big day, and you will all be invited!
If you have any questions regarding production or Market Day or anything else, please let me know. I hope you have a fantastic rest of your week!
