2015 - 2016 Third Grade Weekly News

Please, encourage your child to wear and bring warm clothes to school. We are going to see single digit degrees soon. We like to take the kids outside for recess as often as possible and will likely go outside until the temperature drops below 10 degrees.

Coming Up!

  • Math: We are working hard with the concept of Fractions. This is a short unit and we will test next Friday.
  • Reading: We will talk more in depth about Folktales and Fables and how to compare themes.
  • Grammar: Subject-Verb Agreement and Tenses.
  • Science: We will dive more in the Sound Discrimination and how sound waves and frequency work.

Valentine's Day and Fables

The Goal: To create a fable-inspired Valentine box where classmates can easily deliver your Valentine cards.

Our class is studying the genre of fables. Students drew a fable out of a hat. Each child will create a Valentine box representing his/her fable. They can integrate any of the following:

· The main character (an animal)

· The fable’s setting

· The story’s theme

The boxes are due February 10th.
