Welcome to Third Grade!

Highlights of 2nd Quarter:

In math, we are studying multiplication.  Students continue to be successful in our Math Workshops.  The students work together as a whole class reviewing math skils on our math wall.  The kids then work in groups to practice new skills with teachers and review skills with their peers, independently, and using technology. 

In reading, the students continue the Daily 5 system.  While students are doing this we are working with small groups conducting guided reading groups where we are focusing on skills differentiated according to student need.  Some of the skills include comprehension, back up and reread, main idea and details, theme, summarizing, compare and contrast, author study, context clues, and fact and opinion, fluency, and accuracy. 

In English, the students are working on nouns.  Students are also working on several different types of writing.

In social studies, we are working on a Veteran’s Day project.

In Science, we are currently studying life cycles and food chains.

Third Quarter

Highlights of 3rd Quarter:

We will be studying fractions and measurement throughout the third nine weeks.  We then move into geometry.

In reading, the students will continue the Daily 5 system.  While students are doing this I am working with small groups conducting guided reading groups where we are focusing on skills differentiated according to student need.  Some of the skills include comprehension, back up and reread, using graphic aids, author’s purpose, cause/effect, compare and contrast, prefixes and suffixes, theme, following directions, fluency, and accuracy.  This quarter we will target these skills within our weekly reading passages in our Storytown books.

In grammar, the students will work on adjectives, articles, and action verbs.  We will also be fine tuning open ended response writings. 

In Science, we will be studying Changes to Earth’s Surface and People and Resources.
