Mrs. Bailey's Brains
Fun in 3rd Grade!
Everyone in our class has A LOT to be proud of! They each demonstrated good attitudes, worked hard on each question and showed patience with a VERY long day!
I know they will be thrilled with their results!
- Rereading questions to make sure they know what is being asked
- Using scratch paper for math work
- Looking for clue words in questions or in passages that are important
We have discussed in great length that a goal is something we strive to accomplish but that if we don't, we should be able to look at our work and see we made improvements! Goals are constantly changing and they help us grow as learners! I want students to see the importance of setting goals but I don't want them to be stressed out by them ! This is a hard concept and learning point for many students!
We're going on a Geometry Hunt!
We will be showcasing our knowledge by creating lessons to share with others! We will be "teaching" in our creations so we will be recording our voices as we instruct others on the unique characteristics and properties of these geometric terms!
Focus on it Fridays!
In addition, if you feel that there is a particular skill not being reviewed on the calendar that you would like more help in, please ask! I am happy to see about scheduling a different time on a Friday to work with your student on that topic or skill!
