October 03, 2018

Language ArtsThe third graders will build on their reading skills by practicing making predictions and asking questions while reading. Third graders are working on understanding characters and how characters change over the course of a story. They will also learn to connect what they know about sequence words to aid comprehension in their narrative writing.  This month third graders will continue with their narrative writing unit and will explore the importance of using detail words while writing.


Math Students wrapped up a unit on addition and subtraction at the beginning of the month. In math students are beginning to learn about multiplication and division using models including arrays, pictures, and number lines! Students are not expected to know their multiplication facts at this point in the year.


ScienceOur lady bugs have arrived!! We are so excited to have live specimens in our classrooms.  This month we will watch as our lady bugs go through metamorphosis. Our observations  will help us understand the behavioral and physical adaptations and lifecycle of ladybugs.
