Goals and standards for this week!


Reading -

I can tell the difference between literal and non-literal language when I read.

Math -

I can find perimeters of polygons.

I can understand area by thinking about multiplication and area



3.RV.3.1 Determine how the author uses words and phrases to provide meaning to works of literature, distinguishing literal from non literal language, including figurative language.


3.M.5: Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by modeling with unit squares, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths. Identify and draw rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.

3.M.6: Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths to solve real-world problems and other mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.

3.M.7: Find perimeters of polygons given the side lengths or by finding an unknown side length.

This month's book orders and money are due Wednesday, September 21st! You may also order online. Our class code is KZZ7L.

Town Hall

Our class led the 2nd and 3rd grade Town Hall meeting on Monday! Several students volunteered to speak and they did a great job! We will lead it again later this year so other students will have an opportunity to take part for that one.

The students did a great job and I am so very proud of them all!

Thanks to the following students for volunteering:

Nightly Reading Requirment

Students should be reading each day outside of school. The focus should be on reading something they enjoy and understanding what they are reading. They have a short Reading Log to complete which includes:

  • the date
  • the title
  • # of minutes read
  • who are what they read about (main idea)
  • some details about what they character did OR details from the text

If you have any questions about this requirement please contact me. My goal is to develop a love of reading and learning and to improve their ability to comprehend what they read.
