We are beginning to wrap up a great first quarter! Last week we finished talking about writing narratives and the writing process. AND we introduced multiplication! Keep working with on memorizing multiplication facts with your child at home! This doesn't have to be a long, hard process with just flash cards. Giving them random numbers while driving to football or in an elevator and asking them if they know product of those two numbers. Mrs. Uckele also has some great multiplication games on her website under 3rd Grade, then click learning, then math.
Here is what is coming up this week!
Writing- We are still working on writing a narrative. Students are finishing up our first piece where we have walked though each step of the writing process. We will start another one this week that they will do on their own before they have to complete the first quarter prompt.
Reading- I am wrapping up giving DRA's and the rest of the class is working on our Daily 5 stations. Next week we will begin guided reading!
Math- Students are starting out the week reviewing multiplication story problems. Then we will move onto using arrays to solve multiplication problems and next week we are moving on to division!!! We have had many conversations about how division isn't too hard ESPECIALLY if you have been working on memorizing your multiplication facts!!
Science- Tomorrow we will take a very short quiz on matter and energy!
