Math is just a "Fraction" of our day!
Students began exploring multiplication! They will solve to find the area of squares and rectangles. Students will use a variety of manipulatives and models to represent their understanding of multiplication. Students will also work to understand that multiplication can be depicted in arrays, equal groups, and repeated addition.
Before students begin memorizing their multiplication facts, it is important that they understand what multiplication means.
Students will also begin exploring fractions with denominators of 2,3,4,6, and 8. They will need to partition shapes into equal parts to represent fractions. They will also place these unit fractions on a number line between 0 and 1.
You can help your child with these skills by using any of the online resources below.
We have also been using word sorts, word study menus, and online tools like Spelling City and Freckle. Be on the lookout for word sort resources coming soon! If you want to have your child practice some online word study games, use the link below.
GET EPIC! Book at home with your child!

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.” – Toni Morrison
In second quarter, we move to Informational writing! The Art of Informational Writing focuses on one particular template of informational writing. Students will create a short informational book that demonstrates their expertise about a topic, using the mentor text "Deadliest Animals," as their model. In this unit, students will build on the strategies that they learned in the 2nd grade information writing unit and add new strategies that not only meet 3rd grade standards, but stretch them to explore 4th grade standards as well. Students will focus on clear introductions, elaboration, domain specific vocabulary, inclusion of text features, logical transitions, and short, summarizing conclusions.
