Third Grade News

their new surroundings!  We are in the midst of  constructing our new MPR, and making dreams come true through education!

 In Language and literacy, third graders are developing a much better handle on what to do when they don't understand a word or passage.  They look at pictures and back up and re-read for clues and ask themselves questions.  Students are learning how to summarize and use graphs to organize their thoughts about the books they read and we examine a variety of genres and print forms such as newspapers, magazines, and Web sites. Learning multiplication facts is the big push this year!

In writing, third graders are learning to use organizational methods like word webs and Venn diagrams to help them in more complex writing assignments.  They are being asked to compare and contrast things and take more responsibility for the writing process, including revising, editing, and proofreading. 

Math becomes more challenging in third grade but we will tackle it together.  Students  work with larger whole numbers (numbers like 3,000) and with fractions and decimal numbers.  They will look at odd and even numbers and patterns and solve and explain addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems and even some problems with more than one step!

Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your student's life!
