Students work on finding the area of an unknown length of paper.
We have been working on perimeter and area, which are big skills to master in third grade. Please continue talking about the meaning of these two words. Examples:
Perimeter = distance around, like a fence
Area = what is covering a specific space, like an area rug
This week we worked really hard on theme and finding the themes to the books we are reading. We talked about how theme was like a crème filled cupcake. The Theme is the crème hiding inside every story. Try finding the themes in the stories you read at home.
Past, present, and future tense verbs was the discussion this week in grammar. Our next skill will be making sure our subjects and verbs agree with one another.
We have starting working on informational writing. We will continue to work on this skill after break and during Genius Hour.
We will finish off our fact research after fall break with "survival/ adaptation" facts.
We will then begin working on our binder pages.
Don't forget to send in a color picture (full body) for art class before October 30th.
Also, many still need to send in $5.00 for the binders/boards.
