Students have been reading an exciting nonfiction book titled “Weather”. We are busy searching for the main idea and key details within the text, as well as analyzing the nonfiction text features. This book explains why we have weather, and how weather can change over time. We have also taken a look at how scientists and meteorologists record the weather. Students were excited to learn about the many different tools that are used to record and analyze weather. Finally, 3rd grade students wrapped up their first opinion writing piece and will be moving on to explanatory writing this month.
We have continued working hard studying equivalent fractions! So far we have used area models and fractions strips to identify sets of equivalent fractions and we have also been finding equivalent fractions on number lines. Be sure to point out examples of fractions that you encounter in your daily lives to help reinforce the concept of fractions!
Fact fluency is extremely important! Please make sure your student continues to practice and master their multiplication facts at home.
Spring MAP Testing dates have changed! MAP testing will NOT be occurring during the week of March 16 any longer. It will be taking place the week of April 20 instead.
