Here is an update of our learning in Third Grade:
Writing: We will be studying public issues and will be working on writing about a Michigan public issue.
Science: We started studying animals last week. We have read about 5 animal groups- mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and fish. We are reading about and studying the 4 Bs that go with each group- Body Covering, warm/cold blooded, how they breath, and the babies.
Today, we had a great time going out by the pond to make some observations. We saw ducklings, birds, geese. It was great to see our science lesson come alive!!
Math: We began a new unit and are reviewing and working on word problems. We are specifically focusing on word problems with unknown addends and factors.
As we work on word problems, it is evident that multiplication facts have not yet been mastered for some third graders. It is very important that multiplication fact practice continue through the remainder of the year and especially throughout the summer.
Reading: We continue to read biographies and finish our biography projects.
***If your child has not brought in the quote and photo for their biography project, please help them get this information soon. If you don’t have a printer at home, I can help with that at school.
FIELD TRIP INFORMATION: I have contacted the 4 classroom chaperones. There will be more information coming regarding specific details for the day of the field trip.
Thank you for the kindness shown to me during Teacher Appreciation Week last week! It is a blessing to teach your kids!
