Great Things Going on in Third Grade
It was great to see everyone at the Economics Fair! The fair was a huge success! We are so proud of our students! Their products were amazing and they had a wonderful time as they learned about the Free Enterprise System!
Please see the attached flyers about MISD Frisco Rough Riders Night, Upcoming Carnival Activities and Opportunities, Spirit Wear Clearance, Spring Creek Bar-B-Que Night, Teacher Appreciation Week and PTO Meeting and Election Ballot.
This week in Math, students will continue to work on solving multi-step word problems using UPS check. Students will be making a word problem book this week. Students will have to match up multi-step word problems with strategies used to solve the problem by identifying the thinking patterns needed. Students will be using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to solve the problems modeling various strategies in their UPS checks.
In Reading, we will finish our group novel study over the Lemonade Wars. Students will use the novel to make inferences, sequence events, make connections, make predictions, draw conclusions and work on complex vocabulary development. We have a copy for each child to read, so there is no need to procure a book for your child.
In Social Studies, students will begin their new ELM over plants. We will be looking at plants as a system and how the different parts of a plant work together. Students will be challenged to design a garden for our PTO flower beds.
