As we have made our way into October, I wanted to give you a quick update on what we have been doing in third grade! Here are some important dates to keep in mind:
to sign up! I am looking forward to meeting with all of you!)
Here is a brief update on what we are learning:
Math: We are learning all about multiplication! 3rd graders should understand that multiplication is the same thing as repeated addition. We are learning about how skip counting and equal groups to help us understand multiplication.
Reading: We have just finished up studying nonfiction but will continue to talk about it! We are diving in to our reading program, where students will get to read many types of texts.
Science: This week, we are starting a new unit about social and group behavior.
Social Studies: We are starting our unit on voting and government!
Writing: Students are working on personal narratives, also known as small moment stories!
Thanks for stopping by the blog!
Woo hoo! We have made it to 1,000 Dojo points. After a close vote, our class has decided to do Electronic Day! We will be doing this on Friday, September 29.
Electronic day will be much like a normal day in 3rd grade, except we will have about 30 minutes of ‘free time’ for electronic use in the morning and then another 30 minutes in the afternoon. I will be making sure that the kids are only using appropriate sites/apps/etc.
Your child is more than welcome to bring in their own electronic to use for the day. I have discussed with them that IT IS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY to take care of the electronic while it is here at school. In our classroom we have some laptops that the kids can use. These are here for use if you don’t want to send your child in with their electronic (completely understandable) or if they don’t have an electronic to bring in.
If you have any questions or concerns at all please do not hesitate to contact me. You may reach me through Class Dojo messages, or my email: email@example.com. Thanks!
