Please remember, no school on Wednesday for parent teacher conference day. No school for students on Friday because it is a professional learning day for teachers. No school Monday for Mid Autumn Festival.
In reading workshop this week, readers tackle a very important word: GRIT. They will learn that to have reading grit, they never give up when they come to a difficult word. We will learn and implement different reading strategies to figure out difficult words including: chunking the word, thinking about the context, and trying out different sounds.
As writers we are continuing to write stories from their life with a focus on revising this week. Students will be asked to reread their stories and notice ways in which they can make their writing stronger for their reader.
As mathematicians we will be using the distributive property as a strategy to break down more challenging problems into smaller factors. We will also model the relationship between multiplication and division.
By the end of the week third grade students will deepen their understanding of skip counting, distributive property, commutative property, arrays, number bonds, and tape diagrams.
This week students will explore different reading material that are about rights and responsibilities. They will also take action and organize a part of the classroom and reflect on their decision making process.
