Mrs. Haas' Third Grade News
September 27, 2015
Last week we introduced Listening Library during our reading rotations. Students can log on to www.myscaptsonelibrary.com to listen to books being read to them. Listening to a fluent reader helps students build their own reading fluency. Students can access the website at home, or you can also download the app to your own device at home. Use the Prairie Star username and password to access our school's books.
We will continue our study of regrouping when you add and subtract numbers. This week we will focus on subtraction with regrouping. This is when you borrow from other place values as you subtract.
The students did awesome with our first timed test of the year. We will take another one this Friday. The next timed test is all subtraction facts. Be sure to find time to practice 5-10 minutes each night. Subtraction facts don't pop into our head as easily as addition facts. The more practice students can get at home the better their fact fluency will be.
