WRITING


We will be working on test writing for the month of February. My students will be reading passages and answering writing prompt questions with evidence from the text. Also, they will be practicing answering questions from paired-texts using evidence from both stories.


Social Studies


Chapter 4: Government



Science


I wanted to answer some questions I have been receiving about Science. Third graders do not have very many Science standards. We only have two units of study left in Science (Simple Machines and Rock and Minerals). We are waiting until the Spring to finish those standards. In addition to the Science book, it will include a project and a field trip. I hope this information is helpful to you.
