Hello wonderful 3rd grade families!
The students are working so hard at school in 2019! We are continuing to read different types of non-fiction text, and to identify the different types of text and graphic features, and why author's use them. The students have been doing research on different countries, and creating their own brochures using text and graphic features. We will be moving into autobiographies and biographies next, and reading about all kinds of important people. Vocabulary is also a big area to practice using context clues to figure out what words mean.
In math, we have completed our division unit, and are now working with fractions. We have been practicing using fractions in many different ways. We are also still practicing our multiplication facts. This is a HUGE area of focus. Please make sure to continue to practice multiplication facts in some way at home EVERY NIGHT! If they can commit these to memory, math will be so much easier for them.
As always, we will continue to spend time discussing classroom and school expectations, and what it means to have GREAT EXPECTATIONS in our school.
THANKS for sharing your kids with me, and as always THANKS for your support from home!!!
