3B and 3D News

Math

We will be diving deeper into division and division concepts as well as continuing to work on multiplication. We will also be reviewing concepts we have learned so far in the year such as rounding, regrouping, estimation, and comparing numbers.


WOW: equal groups


NOTE: We will be starting math homework this week. Your child will be given the math sheet in their homework folder every Monday and they will need to return their homework folder with the homework completed every Friday. This is a participation grade and a way for me to make sure they are continuing to practice math skills throughout the year. Help your student if needed, but please allow them to do the work on their own.

English Language Arts

We will be completing middle-of-the-year language arts assessments for fluency, spelling, and writing.


We will also review the writing process (brainstorm, first draft, revise, edit, publish).


In grammar, we will work on the correct spelling of plural nouns and learn how to write possessive nouns.


3D is reading James and the Giant Peach (A Roald Dahl classic and excellent read aloud)


3B is reading Charlotte's Web (I told learners that it was against the law to go through school and not have this book read aloud to them. Ha!)

Science

This week we will be doing a health unit! We will be talking about germs, healthy food and all sorts of things that play a part in keeping our body safe and healthy!


Social Studies

In social studies, we will examine different types of maps such as political and physical maps. We will also be practicing how to use a legend to answer questions about maps.
