Ms. Damschroder's 3rd Grade
Week of January 12, 2015
What do I do at home?
Read EVERY night. Find a good book and READ, READ, READ!! You should read for at least 15-20 minutes every day. Make sure you are not reading something that is too easy or too hard. If you need books, let Ms. Damschroder know.
Practice memorizing multiplication and division math facts. if you need flash cards, let Ms. Damschroder know. Students--you must memorize all basic multiplication and division facts before the end of the year. Timed multiplication tests will begin soon! BE READY!!
Coming later: Our next math unit will focus on the geometry standards.
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
Practice your words every night. Make up chants, cheers or rhymes to help you remember the words. There will be a test on Friday!!
