Let's Spring Ahead with our Learning!
Math: We continue to work on our measurement skills and we are getting pretty good! Students are working on measuring various lengths, widths and heights while selecting the appropriate unit of measure. This month, we will also be working on multiplication and division. In Grade 3, students only work multiplying and dividing to 25. We will focus on understanding that multiplication is repeated addition and division is repeated subtraction. Students will represent problems with drawings, arrays and learn different strategies to solve these problems.
French: This month, we will be focusing on performing arts! The students are so excited to create puppets and present a puppet show to their peers. We will work on reading with expression, paying close attention to punctuation, and speaking clearly. In writing, we are working on reading and following directions as well as writing "How To's". Students will need to include a title, the purpose, a material/ingredient list as well as the directions. There will definitely be some highlights posted on FreshGrade throughout the unit so you can see the fun, hands-on activities this unit will include!
English: We will continue to work on grammar and spelling skills all while working on another research project! Details are to come - stay tuned!
Science: We have just begun our final unit of the year. We will be learning all about rocks and minerals! I am so excited to be teaching this unit as the kids are very interested and very knowledgeable about many rocks. We have a few guest speakers coming in as well as a fieldtrip. Keep an eye out for that email within the next week or so.
Social Studies: We have completed our study of how the environment affects quality of life. We will look at the various services within communities and how communities help each
