Spring Break Activity

Everyone needs a break to refresh now and then. I hope that everyone enjoys their week off and that you get some solid "family time" in with your wonderful third graders. I would love for kids to bring in any pictures or artifacts from their spring break activities (even if it is just from playing outside in the sun). We can use these to help inspire our writing for our next poetry unit. I can't wait to see what these kids will do on their time off.

Congratulations!!!

The following students have passed both their multiplication and division facts this year:


-Anthony Lorek

-Joel Miller

-Josh Lora

-Laiken Lindsey

-Jayden Ashley


There are several students who are SO CLOSE that I predict by mid-April they will be done. A friendly reminder that it is an expectation for them to pass all facts 0-10 in both multiplication and division. We have been testing 11s and 12s, but they are not a requirement for third grade fluency.

Important Dates:

March 30- April 3rd- Spring Break (no school)

April 24th- Mid Terms Go Home

Quadrilaterals

This week we have explored and defined terms within geometry. Students were asked to classify different shapes based on their attributes. We also specifically looked at the qualifications for different types of "quadrilaterals". I have attached pictures from our activities as well as online activities to support their learning at home.

Math Activities

Math

We will be reviewing the skills that have been taught throughout third grade in an attempt to prepare our students for the upcoming math assessment.

Reading/Writing

I am so excited that will begin our Poetry reading and writing unit. Students will be given opportunities to be immersed in different types of poetry and will be creating poetry pieces of their own. We will be using art, music and nature to inspire our thinking.

The students have been voting throughout the week on their favorite read aloud from third grade this year. The final two books were The One and Only Ivan and Owen and Mzee. In the end, The One and Only Ivan was our book champion. Ask your students about these books and which were their favorites.
