This week, Third Graders had the big decision to choose between studying pandas, elephants or tigers! In Reading, students were broken into three groups to begin researching. From stacks of books, Third Graders chose and narrowed their group’s subject into subtopics and began noting their findings. Students have had a blast flipping through pages and having a look at all of the adorable pictures!
Third Graders began their next Unit in Math this week. In Unit 6, students will begin to work through multi-step multiplication and division problems. To begin preparing to build onto what Third Graders already know, students learned five new strategies for multiplication. Third Graders spent the week looking over these strategies and created posters to remind themselves of all of the multiplication strategies we’ve learned so far!
Students spent the week analyzing the apostrophe and its uses in our language. Third Graders worked on identifying apostrophes being used for contractions as well as those showing possession. Third Graders started the week by looking over several examples of the correct uses of apostrophes, and have wrapped up their week by imitating the rules and writing their own. Students are so proud to show off their writing!
