Week #5: We are In Unit One lesson 4 for Language Arts this week. "How Can Problem Solving Lead to New Ideas ?" will be the weekly theme. In Math we will be finishing 3rd grade concepts in Addition & Subtraction and starting our chapters on Perimeter and Area. We start with Chapter 1 lesson 12, take a chapter test and begin Chap 11 Perimeter/Area.
Please ensure your child is reading a minimum of 30 minutes each day, this should continue throughout the school year. The de-codable stories are a great start, but I would like to see your student develop more challenging reading material, as the school year progresses.
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 too!
