Math

 

The students have continued to use different strategies to solve addition and subtraction problems. They are using the standard algorithm, a number line, and breaking the numbers apart. We will continue Unit 4 this coming week and have a test in about 2 weeks. If your child needs more practice, please spend a few minutes reviewing facts daily. This can be with flashcards, a computer game, or in the car. In 3rd grade, I keep the home connection book at school. The whole book will come home on nights there is homework. Many days your child will have time to start the homework assignment at school.

 

Reading

 

This past week the students used their reading journals to record their books. They are learning more about how to identify the genre of a book. I also read a fiction book and our first nonfiction book about animals. Next week we will read more animal books. I will also continue listening to each student read a book and answer questions about the book.

 

Writing

 

In writing this week the students began by thinking of a person that is important to them. Then they listed some small moments they had with that person. They are working on writing long and including a lot of details.

 

Science and Environmental Education

 

The class is now learning more about the forest. They learned about the layers of the forest, the layers inside a tree, and more about how scientists identify trees. Next week we will continue to learn more about the forest.

 

On Wednesday we took a very long hike to Oak Openings. The students made observations about what they saw, smelled, and felt. They also got a chance to explore the area. Some students even found toads.

I welcome volunteers during recess and lunch from 11:20-12:20. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a4eaba92fa4f49-volunteers1. If you are interested in volunteering during the day, just let me know.
