The third grade students are busy learning about character traits and emotions in a story and how they motivate the character to say and do things to drive the story. We are also working on editing and revising written work. In Math we have introduced Number Talks into our daily instruction. The students are really thinking about numbers and building their number sense. It is very important for complex math problem solving for student to have strong knowledge of multiplication and division facts. For now, please have your child study their multiplication facts nightly. In Science we are learning about changes in matter. In Social Studies we are learning about landforms. We are all working in HARMONY and having a great time.
