Third Grade

Language Arts

In reading, we will focus on retell and theme this week. When we retell a story, we tell the main events in a sequence. We share the theme, or lesson of the story, as well. In conventions, we will work on declarative and interrogative (question) sentences.  In writing we will continue working on creating our own narrative stories with a beginning, middle, and end.

Mathematics

This week we will begin our unit on multiplication.  Students will learn how to multiply by using repeated addition of equal groups (5+5+5+5 = 4×5), number lines, and arrays. We will also learn about the Commutative (Order) Property of Multiplication, which states that the order of factors does not affect the product (4×5 = 5×4).

ELA through Social Studies

In ELA through Social Studies we read several different classic fables, and use our retell skills to summarize the stories. We will then take these skills and create our own fables.
