Working Hard in 3rd Grade…

Here’s what we have been up to in our classroom:

Writing: We are working on revising, editing, and publishing our realistic fiction stories this week. We started thinking of small moments in our life and have used those ideas to create fiction characters and a new story line.

Social Studies: Before we begin our Government unit this week, today we reviewed what it means to be a mindful learner. We talked about making good choices even when no one is watching. We were reminded what it means to have good character. We read a book titled The Jelly Donut Difference and then we wrote about a way we could spread kindness to others just like the characters in the story did.

Math: We are working on word problems and have started practicing comparison problems.

Reading: Our Series Book Clubs are finishing up. Students are working on their second book in the series. Book clubs will meet to discuss the similarities and differences they noticed in their books of the same series.


Social Studies Homework and New Math Unit


Social Studies homework:
Economics homework will be coming home tonight. It is due tomorrow (Friday). We have been studying specialization and interdependence as well as import and export. Students are to find five or more objects around the house and write where it came from.

New Math Unit:
We have started our new unit in Math. We will study measurement. Please click on the family letter below to read more information about what we will be learning.

Christmas Break Reading and Math Facts!

It will be so important for your third grader to continue reading and math fact practice over the holiday break. Please remind your third grader to log on to MobyMax to work on math facts (or use flash cards) as well as continue with their daily reading.

Consistency is key in making progress!
Thank you for your support!





Multiplication and Division

We have been working on learning strategies for multiplication and division facts. Today we used counters to help us solve word problems.

Example: I have 12 books that I will place on 2 bookshelves. How many books will be on each shelf?

Joe has 27 baseball cards. He arranges them in 3 rows. How many baseball cards will be in each row?

***Please help your child practice their math flashcards for at least 5 minutes each night. Building fluency with multiplication facts will be crucial to learning division and future math concepts.
