WHAT’S UP IN 3RD GRADE?
THIS JUST IN… UPCOMING
EVENTS!
Wow! It has already been a busy third
quarter!!
In Reading, we are working on our
comprehension skills by identifying main
ideas, making inferences, and writing
summaries. Each student has identified
reading strategies that they will strive to
use to improve his/her own reading
abilities. In the near future we will be
working on test taking strategies to
prepare for the upcoming May SOLs. In
writing we are working on Persuasive
Text. Be prepared to be persuaded!
In Math, we have finished our unit on
Fractions, and will be starting Probability.
We are also emphasizing identifying key
words in story problems that will help us
solve them. Please continue to practice
multiplication and division facts,
0 – 12, daily. We hope that all 3rd graders
can master them by the end of the year.
In Social Studies, we’ve been studying
ancient civilizations. We’ve studied
Greece and Rome so far, and will be
moving on to Ancient Mali soon!
We will begin grade level practices for
our musical soon. Please encourage your
child to learn his or her lines/songs.
Please be sure your child wears his/her
musical t-shirt to the field trip on
Tuesday. Thank you!
