What's Happening in Third Grade

In ELA students are learning the difference between the subject and the predicate in a sentence, and we are stressing the importance of capitalization and punctuation.  We are learning that when speaking of ourselves plus others in a sentence we put ourselves last in the list.  (Ex: "My mom and I" instead of "Me and my mom.")


Be aware that basic addition and subtraction facts are extremely important to have by memory in order to move forward with the more difficult math concepts.  Additional practice at home may be needed for students who do not have these yet. This month we will develop our understanding of square units and arrays to represent simple multiplication problems, and relate the areas of rectangles to rectangular arrays and multiplication. 


We will work together this year to develop responsible and organized work habits that will be very important for your chid as s/he continues through school. Please continue this at home also.

"These schools shine as bright beacons for others, putting forth an exemplary effort to ensure that every student is ready for 21st century college and careers," Torlakson said. "California teachers are developing an education model for the nation, training the students of today to be the problem-solvers, inventors, and pioneers of tomorrow."
