Ms. Kramr's 3rd Grade Newsletter

January 11-15

What we are learning this week.

Math- We will continue to work on our geometry language and concepts. This week we’ll be working with quadrilaterals and finding the area of regular and irregular shapes. A test review will be coming home towards the end of the week to prepare everyone for our DCA on Tuesday, Jan. 19th.


Reading- Students will explore folktales, fables, legends, and myths. We will talk about “theme” in these different contexts. Students will apply story elements into analyzing folktales.



Science- Students will explore with different animals and environmental changes. Students will use their academic vocabulary to express how an environmental change has affected an environment. Ask your child what thrive, perish, and environmental change are.



Social Studies- Students researched a person that has begun or changed a community. This week we will share out all the research with each other. Ask your child what person he/she researched and how it changed a community.


Writing- Students are working on a fiction story. Last week we developed the main character and this week we will focus on setting and sequencing the events of the story. Ask your child to tell you his/her story.
