What’s up in 3rd Grade?
“An Elephant Never Forgets”
Reminder
This just in…Upcoming Events!
Thank You
WHAT’S UP IN 3RD GRADE?
Our new unit in reading has begun… All
students have been busy working on test
taking strategies. The first four weeks will
be dedicated to reading practice. Students
are working on identifying different types of
questions and strategies such as rereading,
highlighting important information, and
looking for key words in the questions.
In math we are finished up our unit on
measurement. The students did a great job
with calendar and temperature. Our next
unit of study will be telling time to the
minute followed by our unit on elapsed time.
I have linked an interactive clock on the
newsletter page to help practice at home.
Please continue to practice multiplication and
division facts on a daily basis so your child
can master them by the end of the year.
In science we have started our unit on
Soil. We will focus types of soil, the
importance of soil and soil as a natural
resource.
Our field trip to the Natural history Museum
last month was a huge success. Thank you to
all our parent volunteers for making it the
learning experience that it was!
The third quarter ends next week
Thursday April 14th, and report cards will be
going home on April 27th. If you have any
questions about your child’s progress please
call or email me to set up a conference.
