Our Week At a Glance
Math: This week, we continued practicing division! We worked on problems with and without regrouping, as well as division problems with and without remainders. We will continue to practice until this skill comes more easily to us!
ELA: We read a fictional text this week all about pushing up the sky! We also practiced spelling words with the prefixes mis-, un-, dis-, and re-, and using and recognizing main and helping verbs.
Writing: In narrative writing, we have been writing folktales! The third graders first read a folktale and picked out its moral. Then, they changed the moral and wrote their own folktales! Right now, they are working on creating their final picture books!
Expedition: This week, we continued working with the 4th graders on our expedition about people who have changed the world. We are exploring different texts, primarily biographies, and learning different strategies to analyze the texts. We will continue next week!
