3B and 3D Happenings
Week of November 4th-8th
Reading and Language Arts
We finished reading The One and Only Ivan! Ask your student to tell you what it was about. We all LOVED it!! I created a quiz on Edmodo for learners to complete. (I've never done this before, so I hope it works properly!) It is due by next Friday, the 8th. Thank you!
In writing this week, we will be writing imaginative stories that have great characters, an awesome setting, and a fabulous problem and solution! I was so impressed with your learners' personal narratives. Wow!
In grammar, we will be learning about adverbs.
*Please make sure your child is reading or on iStation regularly. Thank you!
WOW (Word of the Week): Quotient
We will be working on how to use strategies to solve problems. We will also begin to dip our toes into multiplication by modeling multiplication concepts with arrays.
At home please continue to use Reflex math and Think Through Math 3-4 times a week. Parents, you could also try incorporating some telling time practice at home this week. We’ve talked about how we can say 1:30 or half passed one and it means the same thing. The more practice they get with this the better!
We will continue to talk about force and motion. Pulling, pushing and how work and unbalanced forces play into everything.
This week, we will begin creating our presentations. Learners can present the information any way they like! I can't wait to see what they do!
The kids had a blast! Thank you those of you who were able to help!
The 3rd grade teachers had a blast on Halloween!
Tug of War
Students learned about force and motion through a game of Tug of War.
- Please make sure your learner is well rested and has eaten a good breakfast this week. We want them to be alert and prepared for the COGAT testing. Thank you!
- Did you know that Ms. Paraliticci updates her website every day and quotes the kids about what they've learned? Check it out!
- Did you know that Mrs. Munoz's is "spotlighting" some of her favorite stories that students have written? Go to her website and click on "Writing Spotlight" to read some of them. More will be added on Monday!
