MathThird Graders will continue to work on multiplication. We will start with factors of 0, 1, 2, 5, 9, and 10. We will study patterns for facts and work on problem solving. Please continue to study math facts at home with your children.
ReadingThis month third graders will read Chocolate Fever and The Chocolate Touch. We will work on comprehension strategies, decoding strategies and vocabulary. We will compare and contrast the two stories using Venn Diagrams. We will also work on our fluency by adding Readers Theater into the mix!
WritingWe will continue with our journal writing as well as learning to write chapter summaries to the books that we are reading. Third Graders will also work on letter writing skills as well. This aids in connecting reading and writing skills to the community.
Social StudiesNotable African Americans and their contributions to the communities around us will be presented through books and discussion.We also will continue to explore our geography unit. Students will learn the parts of a map and how to read a map. At the end of our unit, third graders will apply their knowledge of what they have learned about communities to create a brochure of a business or town of their own creation!
