3rd Grade

Week of April 25

Hello 3rd Grade Families!

Literacy: This week for writing, we have started a poetry unit. The students have had a chance to practice, Bio, Acrostic, Cinquain, and Haiku poems. We will continue next week and students will have the opportunity to publish some of their poems using their iPads.


We are continuing our nonfiction reading and learning. This week students learned how to better recognize how an author's perspective can impact the text. They also are getting more practice at distinguishing the main idea and details within a nonfiction text.


Math: We started a unit on measurement using both the metric and customary systems. Students have had to convert measurements (ex. 2 m = 200 cm). We have focused on measuring length and mass. We will continue next week with measuring capacity and elapsed time.
