• May & June: What is Grade 3 studying?

ELA:

Module 3:

Unit Summary: In this module, students begin reading a retold version of the literary classic Peter Pan to build their understanding of how the historical context of a literary classic can have an impact on the content and also to analyze how writers develop characters to capture a reader's imagination. Students will continue the reading routines from Unit 1 to finish reading Peter Pan. At the same time, they will read chapters of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens to compare and contrast stories. Finally, students will revise a scene of Peter Pan and then prepare a presentation explaining how and why they revised that scene.

• Students write and read aloud a revised scene of Peter Pan. They also prepare a presentation to explain how and why they have revised the scene.
• For the mid-unit assessment, students read a new chapter of Peter Pan and answer questions. Students analyze the traits, motivations, actions, and point of view of a character in a certain situation in Peter Pan for the end of unit assessment.
• Students compare two Peter Pan stories, revise a book review, and participate in a text-based discussion.
• Students revise a scene from Peter Pan (mid-unit assessment). Students read aloud a new excerpt from Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens and orally summarize the passage (end of unit assessment).

Eureka Math:

Module 7: Geometry and Measurement Word Problems

Students will…

• solve word problems
•  identify attributes of two-dimensional shapes
• problem solve with perimeter
• record perimeter and area data on line plots
• use problem solving with perimeter and area

Common Core Learning Standards:

3.MD.B.4 - Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units— whole numbers, halves, or quarters.

3.OA.D.8 - Solve two-step word problems using the four operations. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.

3.MD.B.4 - Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units— whole numbers, halves, or quarters.

3.MD.D.8 - Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.

3.G.A.1 - Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.

• Grade 3 Homework, What to expect?

Homework is a crucial part of your child's active learning process and essential to their academic progress. Please make sure that all homework is completed daily.

• Remember, you are there to support your child's learning, but homework needs to be completed by your child.
