3rd Grade Happenings


Math: Students will continue to solve problems involving area and perimeter. Students will be able to add all of the sides to solve for perimeter. They will need to count the boxes to find the area as well as understand the formula: area = length x width. After solving basic area, we will begin solving for area of composite figures. Students should be practicing their multiplication facts each night!

Reading:  Students will practice their reading skills. Students will continue to build stamina to read for at least 50 minutes with little interruption.  Students will also annotate reading passages to help further understand what they are reading. At this point in the year students should be reading at a level O. 

ELA: We are continuing our study of various forms of fiction texts.  Students will learn how to read and interpret different forms of poetry writing.  They will also analyze characters and characters’ motivation. The third graders will practice using text evidence to support their thinking.

Writing: Students will learn how to respond to literature.  Students will also continue to practice how to write short answer and extended response questions according to NYS ELA Testing guidelines/rubric.  The students will continue to work on citing text evidence and utilize a RACCE writing format when constructing short-responses as well.
