In math: Students are working on multi-step multiplication and division word problems. Students need to continue working on mastering all addition and subtraction levels in Math Facts in a Flash. Then, they need to begin work on multiplication and division levels as well. The goal for the end of 3rd grade is to have passed all division levels on Math Facts in a Flash.
In writing: Students have worked on plot summaries, expository summaries, and personal narratives.
In science/social studies: Students have been studying justice (civics) in social studies. We will begin our study of life cycles (science) in October.
In reading: Students have been reading about how children in different parts of the world access books. This is a very eye-opening unit. Our next unit is non-fiction reading, all about frogs.
