     Third grade students have the opportunity to work with two teachers this year.  Mrs. Erickson and I will be your team teachers.  I will meet with you in room 3 and I will be your teacher for math, science, and social studies lessons.  Mrs. Erickson will be your ELA teacher.  She will meet with you in room 5 for readers' and writers' workshop.

     You will switch classes each day, so it will be important for you to come to class prepared, organized and ready to work.

     Parents, please check your child's homework planner and folder each evening.

What's going on?

     In math students are working with multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities.  Students are using quick pictures, repeated addition, arrays and multiplication properties to show their thinking. Students are identifying patterns in tables, solving equations with an unknown number, and using their understanding of place value to perform multi-digit multiplication.   Students are working hard to make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.  The children are also practicing explaining their ideas to others to share their understanding and justify why an answer is reasonable.  

    In addition to the daily math homework, encourage your child to practice his/her facts.  Be sure to remind him/her to use the available online resources on Think Central, Ten Marks, Khan Academy and Xtramath. Playing card games and number games are always a great was to practice math skills and have fun together!
