Great Things Going on in Third Grade
Please see the attached flyer about MISD Frisco Rough Riders Night.
We have a busy, but exciting few weeks ahead of us in third grade. This upcoming week in Math, students will study graphing. Students will learn how to collect and graph data. They will read and create pictographs, bar graphs and dot plot graphs. Students will also learn how to read, create and interpret keys for graphs. Students will use the data in graphs to solve complex word problems. Students should continue to log on to Think Through Math and practice their multiplication facts nightly.
In Reading, we will begin our final Kate DiCamillio novel study over The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. Over the next two weeks, we will use the novel to study character development, sequence events, make connections, make predictions, infer, draw conclusions and work on complex vocabulary development. This is one of our favorite Kate DiCamillio books, as well as a student favorite. Please make sure that your child brings their copy of the book each day to class, so that they can follow along as we read, and refer back into the text to help formulate higher level reading responses.
In Writing, students will continue to work on creating a narrative piece over an exciting event in their life. We will also focus on using commas properly in our writing.
Students are so exciting about our upcoming Economics ELM. Students will be working through DIY's this next week as they learn about economics, free enterprise, supply and demand and personal financial literacy.
