Leader in Me- Habit 7, Sharpen the Saw; I can do things that help Sharpen my body, brain, heart, and soul.
Writing- We have lots of opinions and we are writing all about it. Our opinions need detailed reasons to be supported. We will start to write our opinions this week and include our reasons to support our opinion.
Math- We will wrap up Topic 7 - Adding and subtracting fluently within 1,000. This was focused on deeper in 2nd grade and in 3rd grade, it is a supporting standard. This means it will not be reassessed this time but embedded in other work and skills we do. Next week, we will start Topic 10. This goes back to multiplication and multiplying by multiples of 10.
Reading- We have been reading and collecting clues as a class as we enjoy the book Falcon's Feathers by Ron Roy. We have been working on asking deep questions and making predictions and revising our predictions as they change. Next week, we will start a new book from the series and we will use it to work on that oh so tricky skill. (RL. 3.9 - compare two like texts). Most were red on this skill on our last term's progress report. This quarter, we continue to learn about and practice this skill!
Social Studies- We will continue to talk about the Constitution and it's importance to our country.
