Now that Fall is here, the third graders will be moving more quickly into new and varied curriculum.  Our review session is over and many new concepts will be introduced and repeated until June.

Cursive handwriting will be firmly in place by November 1.  We are using daily practice time to master this skill.  Multidigit subtraction is being done in Math and  that will be followed by  estimation, rounding and finding differences.

As we approach Thanksgiving the children will be doing a large section on data reading, construction of graphs and  learning the various tools to record and comprehend information.  In Science we are moving toward the introduction of their first report and that will be sent home in October.  Time will be alloted in class for some of the research, but most of the report will be done independently.

Social Studies is still revolving around communities and concepts related to growth and development. The field trip to Garfield Farm was just wonderful and many new ideas were explored and discussed. Reading continues to stress fluency and comprehension.

The students have all adjusted really well to the rules and routines in the classroom and we are definetly having fun and making progress.They loved testing week because there was NO homework.  Looking forward to seeing all of you at conference time, but feel free to contact me at anytime to discuss anything.
