Welcome to the Seylar 3rd Grade Website! This website has a number of links we hope will be useful for parents and students. We are looking forward to the 2015-16 school year. We are looking forward to meeting with each of you at our upcoming November parent-conferences.
In math, we are into our Everyday Math Unit 4 entitled, "Multiplication and Division". In this unit we are exploring arrays, and the relationships between multiplication and division. We will also work on solving and writing our own word problems which use these operations. First In Math is a great resource to practice fact mastery at home. This is funded by our HSA.Your students also can access Everyday Math from home, using their logins. There are fact mastery games there they can access. We are using the interactive lesson boards, to enhance our math instruction.
In reading, we began our Unit 3; the "Big Question"-How are people and nature related?"
Our first story's focus question-How do people explain things in nature? During this unit students will read a variety of genres, learn about author's purpose, and explore writing for a variety of prompts.
We are well into the year's first Science Unit: The Solar System. Students are researching planets and fill present their findings in a variety of ways. Students have been"Moon Monitors", observing, charting and predicting the phases of the moon each night.
We look forward to a successful school year working together with you, we are...
