Great Kindness Challenge
Valentine's Day Card Exchange
Third Grade PTO Meeting - Tuesday, February 23rd
In Math, we are moving through Chapter 9. This is a difficult chapter for students, so please plan to give help at home as needed. We have already learned about the Associative and Distributive Properties of Multiplication. Next, we will learn about writing expressions in math using pictures, numbers, and words (example: plus three or 3 more than 1). We will use variables such as x, y, or n in an expression and be able to solve (example 6 x 4 -y; y = 20). We will also write equations and solve two-step word problems.
In grammar, we will be using nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs to create simple and complex sentences for the next few weeks. This activity ties in nicely with our constructed response type of writing, where we are using evidence from text to support answers to questions.
In Spelling, we have another list of homophones, which are words that sound the same but have different meanings.
