Our Week At a Glance
Math: This week, the students worked on measuring objects to the nearest 1/4 inch! They applied the work they did in our unit on fractions to find quarters and halves of inches on a ruler. They will continue with this practice after break!
ELA: We read a realistic fiction text this week about how cultures are both similar and different. We also practiced spelling homophones, and using and recognizing comparative and superlative adjectives!
Writing: This week, the third graders continued opinion writing! They walked through the school to find areas that they think could be improved, and wrote their thoughts in their writer's notebooks. We will be focusing on making strong introductions this week!
Expedition: We continued learning about economics this week! Students are going to be learning about famous entrepreneurs, and they will be sharing their research with their classmates!
