Third Grade News !!!!

Math 

Our Third Grade scholars are working on becoming experts of graphs. This week we focused mainly on scaled picture graphs. Scholars were able to understand why a scaled picture graph was better to use when you have more information and numbers. Our students were even able to draw and label their very own scaled picture graphs with numbers ranging from 2 to 10!       

Spelling  

Third Grade spellers are mastering word patterns by cutting out their sort and sorting them by their specific spelling rule every day. This continued practice helps students to not just memorize the spelling words for the assessment on Friday, but to really learn the spelling rule to apply to their everyday writing. Spelling groups are differentiated for each child which ensures that each student receives the spelling rules that they need to work on most. Practicing at home also helps students to make these words a part of their everyday spelling. 

Art

This week in Art class scholars have been working on their self-portraits. Scholars took the time to look at themselves in the mirror and really capture themselves. Artists added details and lots of colors. We are so proud of how these portraits are turning out!
