Marching Into Spring!
Miss F's Classes are "Springing" ahead to April
3rd Grade Math
Since I took over the class three weeks ago, we have been working on our multiplication facts. We have practiced online, with flash cards, with drawings, and with objects. This week we wrapped up our chapter about learning our multiplication facts and will be moving on to Chapter 5, how to use our multiplication facts. We are excited to use all of our new knowledge of multiplication in different ways! Remember, you can never study your facts too much! I have included a link at the bottom of the page for Xtramath-a free, online math facts practice site.
1st and 2nd Grade Math
1st Grade Math
We have been working on a lot of new things in first grade this month! We are learning different ways to subtract, different ways to measure objects, and even how to tell time. We have been practicing our facts daily using the computer, the iPad, and even objects around the room! It has been a great three weeks so far! Look for the link at the bottom of the page for Xtramath.org--an online facts practice site.

3rd Grade Reading and Language Arts
3rd Grade Reading
In reading over the past two weeks we have read about Native American Legends and Working Animals. Reading about Native American Legends was so much fun, we even created our own legends and wrote in Native American symbols. We read a legend that we compared to Cinderella, and another one about a brave girl and her struggles during a drought.
The stories we read about working animals taught us how important animals can be to people with special needs and special jobs. We learned about a police dog named Aero who protected his partner, Mike. We also read about a helper monkey that was taught how to do amazing things for his owner who was in a wheelchair.
This week we started a unit on Character Study. We started with a funny story about Ramona Quimby, a sneaky third grader who is always getting into trouble. We are looking forward to learning more about her and predicting what she is going to do next!
