Third Grade
  • June: What is Grade 3 studying?


    Into Reading Pilot 

    Module 1: What a Character! 

    • Students will listen to, read, and view a variety of texts and media that present them with information about bold, interesting characters.
    • A genre focus on realistic fiction provides students with opportunities to identify point of view, literary elements, and theme in order to better understand unfamiliar texts.
    • Students will also encounter fantasy to build knowledge across genres.
    • Students will, as students build their vocabulary and synthesize topic knowledge, they will learn that each protagonist is a unique individual, just as they are.


    Writing: Opinion

    • Module 7 Into Reading

      Students will examine if making good choices helps everyone do their best.

      Focal Text: What if Everybody Did that?

      Summary: If one person makes a poor choice, the result may not be disastrous.  However, this story demonstrates the consequences when many people make the same poor choice.


    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.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 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.
