Writing Students will study legends from various Native American tribes and use their imagination and creativity to write their own legend. Third Graders will create a Totem Pole and write about it as well as Dream Catcher writing!
Reading Third Grade will continue our cross curricular Native American unit this month. We will be reading and learning about a variety of Native American tribes as well as poetry, folktales, and legends.
Spelling and Grammar We will continue with our weekly spelling tests and unit reviews. At this point all spelling tests are given in the form of dictated sentences. All words are ones that third graders have already learned. Some of the students may even be writing in cursive handwriting!
Social Studies Third grade has embarked on our in depth cross curricular study of Native Americans. We will learn the history of several tribes as well as the effects that westward expansion and settlement had on Native American lives. Each student will research a region and a particular tribe within that region. They will learn various note taking strategies and present their research with a power point, poster, booklet or mobile.
Math Third grade is moving right along in math. We will be studying geometry, area, perimeter, and a review of time. Math fact Fridays continue. Please, please, please continue to have your children study math facts at home. Particularly multiplication and division!
