Welcome to Third Grade!

   Thanks for checking in!  This month in Science class we will be studying magnetism.  In Social Studies, we'll learn how pioneers traveled west and lived in the 1800's.
     In reading class, we are discussing books with social issues - bullying, prejudice, being yourself.  We'll be talking about character traits and studying how people deal with adversity.  Students will identify achievements, obstacles, successes, failures, influences, and mentors.
     We will learn about persuasion in our writing classes this month.  We'll brainstorm ideas, develop arguments, and write a piece to persuade.
    Our math lessons will be working on fractions.  We'll learn to identify parts of a whole and to place fractional parts on a line segment. Also, please continue to work on multiplication basic facts for both speed and accuracy.
