Thoughtful in Third Grade

See what is going on in 3M and 3D!

Reading Workshop

Both classrooms are working on social study themes. Mrs. MacNeil's class is focusing on democratic government and Mrs. Dietrich's class is focusing on communities past and present. Classes will switch topics at the end of the unit! Throughout these non-fiction mini-lessons this week, students were focusing on the following learning targets:

  • I am learning how essential questions help me read purposefully and critically to build a continual understanding.
  • I am learning to link the meaning of new words to my schema and continue to use context clues and text features to determine meaning of new academic words.
  • I am learning to find information that supports the essential question in my own independent reading book.

Students can read nonfiction or fiction at home and continue to document their minutes for their monthly logs! They do not have to read about communities or government topics at home.

Math Workshop

Students spent the week studying the relationship between multiplication and division! The learning targets were:

  • I am learning to self assess my knowledge of multiplication and division.
  • I am learning to work collaboratively on a project.
Student corrections for the unit 2 test were completed this week and are being sent home for parents to view, sign, and return.
