3rd grade class home page

Here are some things to look forward to this month. In Reading, students will continue to learn new skills as well as practicing old skills using 3rd grade reading stories. Students will learn skills such as predicting, cause/effect, making inferences, and visualizing. We will also read the very familiar book Polar Express. Please continue practicing the comprehension strategies that were handed out during conferences. Students need to work on their independent reading skills.

In Math, we will continue multiplying numbers in the tens and hundreds. Next students will learn how to divide into the hundreds. Please continue to use IXL to enhance your child’s learning throughout the month. Students should also work on those multiplication facts, remember the goal is to solve 27 problems in 2 minutes.

In Science and Social Studies students will learn about current events using the Scholastic News articles.  Please feel free to go to scholasticnews.com to read and review skills practiced in class.
