Hello from 3rd grade!
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! Here is what is happening in 3rd grade this week.
This week in reading we have started our first Wonders unit. We will be spending the next two weeks exploring the genre Fantasy, as well as working on the comprehension strategy Visualize and the Character Traits. We will also be working on synonyms. In writing we will begin working on Friendly Letters, the students will have the option to write a letter to a relative or friend and mail their letter out when we finish them. We are finishing up our first math chapter on Wednesday; the students have done a great job with place value! We will begin Chapter 2 on Thursday. Chapter 2 focuses on properties of addition.
In Social Studies this week we are wrapping up our first Studies Weekly newspaper. We have been learning all about Maps, their symbols, and how to read a simple street map. This week in Religion we are learning about God and his creations. We will have another Religion test on Friday this week, and it will still be an open book test. We will start our first Science unit, Forces next week!
