The Mustang Stampede
Third grade news for the Month of November.
We will be beginning fractions soon. Students must be able to identify fractions of a set, fractional parts of a whole object, equivalent fractions (with a model), and compare/order fractions given a model. We will be doing some fun, hands-on activities with fractions, including Pizza Fractions, which will require some parent help (Nov. 25, 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.). If you're interested in helping with that activity, please let me know as soon as possible.
Fluency: We are completing our review of subtraction facts and will begin multiplication soon. We will begin with 0s, 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s.
Reading / Language Arts / Spelling
Writing: We have broken apart the sentence and are now focusing on composing complete and meaningful paragraphs. We will set our sights on being specific, adding meaningful details, and staying within the topic.
Spelling: We are continuing the word study program. It seems the students are improving with the new curriculum. You will be seeing more cluster patterns now that we completed basic vowel sounds.
