English Language Arts

Reading

This week we will continue working with nonfiction text. Students will be exploring the text structure of comparing and contrasting as both readers and authors. From US regions to animals species, students will focus on thinking analytically to find similarities and differences, utilizing a variety of text support. Students will also specifically focus on essential reading strategies such as distinguishing between fact and opinion and looking for cause & effect relationships.. We look forward to using the mentor text, City Homes and Deep Down and Other Extreme Places to Live, to help us enhance our reading

Math

This week the 3rd graders will also be introduced to scale and referents while reading and discussing the book Biggest, Strongest, Fastest. Students will dive into understanding the difference between the metric and U.S. customary systems of measurement and then work with metric measures of grams, kilograms, milliliters, and liters.

Social Studies

In social studies your children are showing great understanding of our world and will soon be creating their own country! They'll be brainstorming with partners in order to develop a wonderful place to live...and be asked to design their own country map and flag, too! After our project, we’ll be exploring other forms of geography such as physical geography, climate, landforms and natural resources.
