Week of March 13, 2017
We will continue with our Wonders unit entitled "Meet the Challenge." This week's theme focuses on flight, and the students will be focusing on answering the question "How are people able to fly?" The students will read and discuss two expository texts and a Greek myth to compare the reasons why people want to fly.
The students will continue exploring measurement using time intervals, and then move to measuring items to the nearest quarter- and half-inch.
Learning multiplication facts fluently is a necessity for students by the end of third grade so that they can continue to be successful in math throughout their education. We will be working diligently on learning these facts this year (through 10 x 10). However, in order to be successful at learning these facts, the students must also practice at home.
Thank you for all that you do at home to ensure that your child continues to be successful!

Please ensure your child is reading an average of 20 minutes each day. Research shows a significant correlation between daily reading practice and students' success.
Remember, the way to become a better reader is to read! Please encourage your child to read at home, and remember, third graders still like to be read to!
