Welcome to 3rd Grade in room 106 with Mrs. Buckley. I enjoy working together with families to make 3rd grade a safe, nurturing learning experience. I love to see how each child grows both socially and academically throughout a school year! Let's have a wonderful year!.
*****Check out the new study guides in the Files and Documents section to the left of this website.*****
Math: We are completing our Fractions Unit with the test on Thursday, April 6th. Please have your child continue using IXL because it is a wonderful resource for practicing multiplication concepts and reviewing math concepts we have covered this year. Fact Dash is another resource. It is a great way to work on increasing speed and fact fluency for solving computation facts.
Science: We are working on our Earth, Moon, and Sun Cycles Unit. Check out the study guides in the "Files and Documents" section to the left on this screen. Our test will be on Thursday, March 30th.
Social Studies: Students did a great job on the Ancient Civilization Unit. We are creating travel brochures on the computer for the civilization that they chose for the Maker Space Project.
Writing: We are currently working on creative writing using lots of voice to help make our stories interesting.
We are also reviewing ABC order.
Reading: We are concentrating on sequencing and making inferences. Students are learning how to retell a sorry in order using only the main idea and supporting details for the story. Inferences are made by learning how to look for clues in the text as well as use their background knowledge to better understand the text.
Office 365 Directions
We used Office 365 during our Maker Space project to create an advertisement for our simple machines we created. Our brochures will be created on Office 365 too!
I have posted a document under the Files and Documents tab on our class webpage that has directions of how your child can log into Office 365. They just use their username and password that they use to get on the computer here at school (with the addition of the @pwcs-edu.org for the email).
If your child can practice getting on their Office 365 account, that would be very helpful as we are going to be doing some projects using PowerPoint which they will access through their Office account.
