The first weeks of school are an important time to set precedent for the rest of the year. Please make sure your child arrives on time, well rested and after a good breakfast.
Health - we will spend some time on getting to know each other and learning ways to work together.
Writing - We have finished our Personal Narrative unit and are going to celebrate our stories with the other third grade classes. In between our writing unit we will be focusing on writing small moments of each stage of the salmon life cycle. This is one way we try to integrate all subjects into one theme.
Math:Unit 1, 2 and 3 will be used for Math grade on our Tri 1 Report Card. Students are practicing solving two step math problems. This is often quite difficult for third graders and this is the first time they see two step problems. You can help at home by making up some problems for the kids to solve in their daily life.
Example: If Johnny leaves the house at 12:45 and gets to his friend's house at 1:00, how long did it take him. Johnny has to be back home by 4:00. When will he have to leave? (hint, don't forget how long it takes to get back home)
We are learning about theme in our reading. Theme is the underlying message that is not explicitly evident in the text. A good way to look for themes is reading fables. The kids love them and it is amazing how many themes they can come up with from just one story.
We have finished out unit on Democracy. Our next unit will start after our report cards. It will be on the Pacific Northwest Natives.
We are moving along in our Life cycle unit and writing small moments at each stage in the cycle. Ask your student what is happening to them today in their story.
