Greetings from Room 116!
Congratulations to all of our students for completing the Grade 3 Mathematics MCAS!! Everyone persevered and gave their best effort. Thank you families for your support in this endeavor.
Following are some of the many other highlights of our week:
ELA: We finished our historical fiction book groups, observing how good writers establish character, plot, mood, and theme. During Writer’s Workshop, we worked on various memoirs; while in Spelling, we reviewed the –ing suffix.
Math: We reviewed all mathematical concepts: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, measurement, fractions, and geometry. We also played an interactive, kinesthetic game of multiplication on the baseball field.
Science/SS: We recorded new observations regarding our long-term evaporation experiment. We also launched our study of life during the later colonial era.
Other: We finished our our Extreme Weather Story Board projects in Library/Technology.
Best wishes to all for a restful weekend!
P.S. Homework includes nightly reading and math fact practice.
