News for Mrs. Idehenre's Third Grade

The Honeycomb

February 10, 2016


This week in math we will finish up two-step word problems. Students will complete the study guide in class and correct for HW. We will take the two-step word problem assessment on Friday.

English Language Arts (ELA):

In grammar, we are working on pronouns. Students have learned singular and plural pronouns and will also work at ensuring they match subject and object pronouns (ie. me v. I)

In reading, we are learning to find the main idea and details so that we can compare and contrast texts. You can help at home, by asking your child to share what they read about and tell the main points of their reading.

In writing, we are expressing our opinions through writing. Students will continue to expand their thinking by adding details to their reasons.

Social Studies:

In social studies, we have completed learning about the key leaders and battles of the American Revolution. We will assess Leaders and Battles on Wednesday. We will begin learning about the effects of the American Revolution.


In Science, we are learning about properties of materials. Students learned about thermal energy, evaporation, melting, freezing, and condensation.


Be sure to keep up with your child's progress on Canvas. You are able to see grades, view responses, and comments.

Assessments at a Glance:

Wednesday - Key Leaders and Battles of the Revolution

Friday - Two-Step Word Problems
