Third Grade - Mrs. Eberhardt
Happy Catholic Schools Week! This is a great week to celebrate what an amazing school we have! We have some fun dress-up-type days, and an activity on Wednesday! We also will only have math homework on Monday due to the Wednesday activity and Unit review on Tuesday/Thursday.
For reading, we will be working with our Storyworks magazine. This is always a favorite reading activity for the class.
We will continue working on our opinion paper about robots or humans in space. The class is almost done with these!
We will finish module 4 this week. We will work on the study guide on both Tuesday and Thursday, with the unit test on Friday. We will finish off our lessons with irregular shapes. This can be hard for the class to see how to divide shapes up. The class knows the equation for area is L x W = A
Please keep practicing skip counting with your students. As this becomes easier for them, start to have them practice facts (like 3X6). There are many ways to do this outside of flashcards! A site we use in class is http://www.timestables.me.uk. Multiplication (and division) fluency is very important for future success in math. Remember for each fact family they pass off (40 problems in 3 minutes), they earn another topping at our multiplication sundae party at the end of the year. We've been doing timings in class so watch for those papers to come home to see what multiplication fact your student needs to work on.
