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. Third Grade is getting off to a great start! The students are getting in to the swing of our new school year and learning classrooms routines.
In math, we moved into our Everyday Math series second Unit entitled, "Addition and Subtraction". In this unit we will explore addition and subtraction strategies, fact extensions, daily math messages, number boxes and assessment of varying skills levels. We will also be using the interactive lesson boards, new this year, to enhance our math instruction.
In reading, we began our first Unit; the "Big Question"-Which skills help us make our way in the world?
Our first story's focus question-What can we learn by trying new things? 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 beginning the year with a unit in Social Studies. Students will exploring Essential Questions related to the Eastern Woodlands. Students will seek information to locate answers related to our topic questions, and wonderings of their own. On Monday, October 16th we will take a field trip to the Churchville Nature Center. There, students will get a variety of hands on experiences that will simulate living as a local Lenape tribe member.
We look forward to a successful school year working together with you, we are...
