Third Grade Announcements
Hello and welcome back to 2018-2019 school year. I hope you all had a wonderful and restful summer. I would like to give you an idea of what your child will be learning this year. This year the Third Graders will be learning multiplications, division, algebraic mathematics, geometric figures, measurement, and fractions. We are now on Topic 1 in Math, Multiplication and Division. Students are expected to write equations for word problems, draw a diagram/picture, and explain their thinking using mathematical terms. In Language Arts the Third Graders will follow the Writing Process and compose Narrative and Expository writings. The students will learn about the four different types of sentences and compose these sentences. The students will also implement correct grammar usage and mechanics. Students are expected to read daily for 30 minuets each day. To improve their reading skills. Did you know that studies show that a child that reads to an adult 30 minutes every day can improve his/her reading level an entire grade level?
