Third Grade Scoop

February 17th - February 21st

Math

Math W.O.W. congruent-figures that have the same size and same shape.

This week in math we will continue working with 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional figures and review elapsed time in word problems. Students will learn how to decompose 3-dimensional figures and create their own word problems using elapsed time.

The students did such a creative job designing their own symmetrical figures.

Social Studies

Every learner is creating a state. He/She will name it and include natural resources, land forms, cities, a capitol, compass rose and a map key. I am excited to see the finished products!

English Language Arts

We will be continuing our poetry unit. It is fun to create and share our different styles of poems!

We will also continue to learn about playful language like riddles, tongue twisters, and idioms.

Science

This week we will continue to compare day to day weather changes and discuss the different types of weather that can occur in other cities around the world.

We will also explore the patterns, systems and cycles within the environment, such as the water cycle.

I am looking forward to seeing all the creative Weather Report and Forecasting that is due in March. Good Luck!

What should my learner be doing at home?

Please pick between these resources and complete 3-4 nights a week for practice at home. From our experience, we feel that 30 minutes is an appropriate amount of time for "home fun". Thank you for supporting us with this!
