    Dear Parents,

    It’s hard to believe that we are already into the month of October. Third grade has been working hard in all subject areas. This month will also be a busy month for the children.
    In reading the children have been working hard. They have learned a lot about sequencing events and comparing and contrasting. The children have also been reading a variety of genres in the reading series. Don’t forget that the children will also be working on a book report this month. Keep encouraging your child to read their mystery book.

    In math the children have been moving quickly through the Envision Math program. We have learned about the various properties of addition, how to add mentally, and estimate sums and differences. Please feel free to review these topics on Pearson with your child. The next topic will cover adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers.

    In Social Studies that children have been discussing different types of communities and have been “visiting” various communities throughout the US.

    The children absolutely love the new FOSS Science program. The children will be continuing with matter and motion throughout the month of October.
    In English the children have been working on their Bio Poems. They have also been learning different types of sentences and subjects and predicates.
