Third Grade

As the leaves fall and the season changes, third graders are moving along as well.  We are starting our next math unit, subtraction, which will involve subtracting higher numbers, subtracting across middle zero's, and the concept of subtraction as the inverse operation of addition.  We will begin our Social Studies unit by studying maps, globes, and why they are important in our world.  This connects nicely with ELA, as we continue our reading and writing activities that focus on how people around the world access books and learning.  As we explore these fascinating texts that celebrate the diverse ways that people everywhere enjoy literature, we are building essential skills such as finding text evidence, identifying the gist of a text,  and writing coherent paragraphs.  We are also continuing our Lakeland Word Study program, which builds spelling strategies as well as cursive skills.
