Dear 3rd Grade Parents,

Sports Day was by far the highlight of our week! Students not only had a great time, but were able to practice all important teamwork and sportsmanship skills. It was also great to see that we have so many talented Grade 3 athletes! 

Dates to Remember:

  • March 1st: PD Day – No school for students
  • March 15-16th: Student-Led Conferences
  • March 19th: End of season 2 ASAs
  • March 26th: Noon dismissal
  • March 29th – April 9th: Spring Break
  • April 12th: Classes resume

Curriculum

  • Reading: We will continue our next reading unit consisting of Book Clubs and researching a variety of animals in small groups.
  • Writing: Students will continue nonfiction writing, applying the skills we worked on in the previous unit with more ownership and independence.
  • Math: We will continue Unit 4, of Measurement and Fractions. Students will gain an understanding of equivalent fractions, fractions as a whole, and fractions as a part of a group. 
  • Unit of Inquiry: Students will begin their inquiry into the adaptations and life cycles of various organisms. This will tie in beautifully with our reading and writing units. We’re excited!

Have a wonderful long weekend and keep reading! 

Kind Regards,

Grade 3 Team
