Classroom Update

Reading - This week we reviewed what makes a story a folktale.  Students brought in stories from their past.  We enjoyed listening to the adventures of grandparents and even great grandparents!  We also discussed the theme or the special message of a story.  This can be difficult for 3rd graders.  It's a skill we'll be working on all year.

 

Word Work - We are on week 2 of the words.

 

Math - This week we started learning about liters and milliliters.  The students are learning how to use a vertical number line to read amounts and to add and subtract volume.  They've been introduced to the words capacity and volume.  Continue to practice all multiplication facts at home.

 

Science - This week we studied two simple machines, the screw and the wedge.  I hope you enjoyed their seesaw demonstration of making their pencils into screws!

 

Writing - The students are busy revising, editing, and adding pictures to their final pieces of writing.
