As readers this week, we will continue with our mystery reading and build upon our prediction skills. We will learn to pause while reading so that we can remember key details, how to discuss parts of the story with a reading partner, and how to use the known structure of mystery novels to make predictions.
As inquirers this week, we are going further with our learning by reflecting and thinking of new questions or wonders. Be sure to ask your kids what they chose for their topic and help them dig deeper into what they are interested in.
As mathematicians finish their studies this year, they will review fundamental skills. Students create representations and discuss whether or not they agree with each representation. Finally mathematicians will play fluency games related to Grade 3 skills, including fractions, rounding, multiplication, and division. Students discover fluency games they enjoy playing and decide which ones they would like to continue to play during the summer recess.
