Mrs. Lambert's Third Grade Class
First day of school August 20th.
Welcome to Third Grade
What are we going to learn?
In Language Arts, we will be closely looking at the characters in the stories we read and how their actions affect the events of the book. We will be working on point of view and discovering that our point of view is often not the same as the characters in our books. We will be learning how the illustration in a book help us understand what is happening. We will be reading the A Series of Unfortunate Events series and comparing and contrasting the different books. We will be working on main idea. We will be working on writing opinion papers and how to support our opinion. We will be doing a few research projects and will be learning how to incorporate technology into our writing.
In Math, we will be working on multiplication, division, fractions, estimation, measurement, area, and look at the attributes of different shapes.
In Science, we will be looking at Earth's resources. We will be studying living things and how they grow and change. We will be studying different forms of energy.
In Social Studies, we will be looking at our community and how it has changed over time. We will learn to use timelines, maps, and other primary sources to discover how things have changed. We will look at how different communities are affected based on the agriculture, industry, and natural resources in that community. We will look at transportation and how that affected communities. We will look at our responsibilities as a citizen. We will study laws and the people that enforce those laws. We will study different governments. We will look at consumerism.
Take Home Folder
The left hand side is called Stay at Home. This is things like completed papers, tests, or information about upcoming events. It is also important to check this side to stay updated about things going on in your child's academic life as well as events happening in the class and at school. The only difference is the items on this side do not need to be returned to the classroom.
