Next Week's Focus


This week in reading we will be reviewing our comprehension skills we've been working on: Main Idea, Theme, Synonyms & Antonyms, etc.



We started learning about multiplication concepts this week. We will continue with understanding the meanings of multiplications by solving multiplication problems as "repeated addition" and using "arrays" to show pictures. We will also have a short quiz review math concepts we've learned during the first nine weeks (number since, estimating, place value, adding, subtacting)

We will have a timed fact test EVERY Tuesday and Thursday. Students have practice sheets in dry erase pockets they can bring home to practice. Student will start with addition facts and progress to basic multiplication facts as the year goes on. They are working towards earning QR code rewards and 3rd grade Ice Cream Party.




We will be having some fun this week doing 3 different Halloween Inquiry Activities. We will be questioning, experimenting, and solving problems that go with the Halloween theme.
