Kindree Kids In 3A, 3B & 3C
In Language, students will continue to read a variety of literary texts such as poetry, chapter books, adventure stories and informational texts. Students continue to apply their knowledge of reading comprehension strategies to support their interpretation of various texts. A focus on making meaningful connections to familiar texts and to the world around them will continue throughout November. Kindree kids will be writing short texts using a variety of forms for many purposes and audiences. Parents are encouraged to listen to their child read aloud to build fluency skills. As well, parents can engage in conversations about what has been read to build comprehension skills.
In Math, the focus will be for students to solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of two-digit numbers, using a variety of mental strategies. Currently, students are learning how to identify, extend and create repeating patterns involving two attributes such as size, colour, orientation and numbers. Grade Three students continue to learn how to read, describe and interpret data presented in charts and graphs. Parents can support this learning by finding daily applications of number skills.
