Miss Dunn's Third Grade Newsletter
March 16-20, 2015
In math this week we have been working with rulers. Students are learning to measure various objects in the classroom using the inches side of a ruler. This is an important step in our math learning as we will be moving on to the basics of geometry and working with shapes to find perimeter and area later this year.
I am so proud of my readers this week! Your children are avid readers and I am very impressed by the AR points they have been racking up this month! In class we have been working on finding the main idea in paragraphs and writing short summaries. Our writing skills are improving as we learn about connecting complete sentences to support our main idea.
As you know, PSSAs are coming up quickly! We are doing as much as we can to prepare for the tests by working through PSSA material in math and reading. Our students are working very hard and learning constantly.
