Third Grade news for the months of April & May
We are taking a STAAR Practice test in Math for final review. The real STAAR test for math will be Tuesday, April 22. After we finish testing, our curriculum includes measurement of capacity and volume. Students will need to know appropriate capacity and volume units and be able to determine capacity and volume from a model. In class, students will use cubic units to fill 3D figures and measure liquid capacity.
Reading & Language Arts & Spelling
LA: We are finishing up the fiction genre with the chapter books they are constructing. The students are doing a phenomenal job and will be sharing those soon. For the remainder of the year, the students will work on the research-based essay concerning the animal they chose.
Spelling: We will continue the same plan to finish out the year. It seems to be working quite well with your support.
SS: We will move our study on basic government to after the STAAR Test. Many of our reading passages will be based in the non-fiction reading category.
