November: What is Grade 3 studying?
Essential Question: How do people use words to express themselves?
In this module, students will listen to, read, and view a variety of texts and media that present them with information about the importance of words and how they are used to express ideas and feelings. Students will have opportunities to identify elements of poetry and figurative language in order to better understand unfamiliar texts.
- Elements of Poetry
- Figurative Language
- Text and Graphic Features
- Point of View
Students will explore the power of writing to express themselves. They will learn about the elements of a letter and an e-mail in order to communicate with others.
Module 2: Place Value and Problem Solving with Units of Measure
- explore time as a continuous measurement
- count by fives and ones on the number line as a strategy to tell time
- solve word problems involving time
- measure weight and liquid volume in metric units
- round to the nearest ten and hundred
- add and subtract measurements
Module 3: Multiplication and Division with Units of 0, 1, 6-9, and multiples of 10
- apply the distributive and commutative properties to relate multiplication facts
- count by units to multiply and divide
- interpret the unknown in multiplication and division
Common Core Learning Standards:
3.NBT.A.1 - Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.
3.NBT.A.2 - Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
3.MD.A.1 - Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.
3.MD.A.2 - Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l).1 Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem.
3.OA.A.3 - Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
3.OA.A.4 – Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = _ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ?
3.OA.B.5 - Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)
3.OA.C.7 - Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
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.OA.D.9 - Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.
3.NBT.3 - Multiply one-digit whole numbers by multiples of 10 in the range 10-90 (e.g., 9 × 80, 5 × 60) using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
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.
- Remember to sign your child's homework every day!
Grade 3 Homework is as follows:Reading Log:
- Students should be reading at home for 30 minutes a night. Please have them record their book on the reading log. Parents should initial each night. Reading logs are collected and replaced when they are full.
- Coming soon - students will be expected to write reading responses based on the books they are reading for homework. The specific assignments should stay in their homework folders.
- Students will receive daily math homework from the Go Math Student Edition.
- Every day your child should be studying their multiplication facts by using Reflex math.
