This month, the entire third grade is choosing one of their written pieces to edit. The editing process allows the students to look deeply at their written work to make it more descriptive and detailed.
We have had a very busy October. The students in the entire third grade just finished writing a persuasive piece. The students had to pretend that they were a pumpkin and needed to use descriptive language to persuade someone to choose them from the "patch". The students worked on their first draft in class and then typed their final draft on their chrome books. In math, we have begun working with multiplication. We are dealing with arrays, grouping of numbers, commutative properties and fact fluency. Students will soon come home with a practice page to complete nightly so they can become more fluent with their multiplication. The students are very excited about working on multiplication. In reading, we are focusing on formatting a written response to texts that we are reading in class. Students need to provide evidence from the text to complete their written answer.
