Anderson's 3rd Grade Class
Newsletter: May 2, 2016
This week, we will review area, perimeter, graphing, line plots and measurement word problems. Students will enjoy various hands-on activities during math this week to help spiral review these skills. This will be our final third grade unit to cover in math. Next week, we will begin to preview fourth grade math with the place value unit.
We will continue to read and discuss poetry. Students will practice visualizing, or creating mental images in their minds, to help them further comprehend the meaning of a complex text. Students will be expected to independently read a poem called, "Afternoon on a Hill" and answer comprehension questions about the meaning of the poem as a reading strategy and skills grade.
Students will begin their last narrative writing assignment for this school year. Students will need to write a creative story that will include dialogue, problem, solution, transition words, and a well thought out beginning, middle and end. This final narrative writing piece will count as their unguided narrative writing grade in the areas of ideas, style, organization and conventions.
This week, we will review all of the American Heroes that were taught this school year. Students may use their social studies journals, study guides, social studies book and links on their eClass homepage to help them review key details about each American Hero's life. There will be an American Heroes Review Test on Friday, May 7th.
