Welcome!! This is my sixth year teaching at MVES! I am excited for a year BURSTING with learning, laughter and fun!
3rd Grade Overview; Back-to-School Night
For your reference- this is the third grade Back-to-School Night video. You may also view the video on YouTube.
Math: We are learning about 3-D geometry, telling time and elapsed time, and measurements of capacity. 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 a great way to work on increasing speed, fact fluency, for solving multiplication facts.
Science: We are working on finishing our Maker Space engineering project based on the book Dogzilla by Dav Pilkey. Next science unit will be Matter.
Social Studies: We are beginning our new SS unit on Ancient Civilizations. Students will learn about ancient Greece, ancient Rome and Mali.
Writing: We are currently working on our Poetry unit. Students will explore a variety of poem structures, identify lines and stanzas, and be able to interpret and comprehend grade level poems. Students will also have an opportunity to write several of their own poems.
Reading: We are concentrating on story elements. We are also learning about synonyms and antonyms. Students are also focusing on summarizing.
