We made it through our first week! Last week we spent some time learning third grade routines and expectations. The kids have really been doing a great job so far and are enjoying 3rd grade!
Last week in Math we reviewed some second grade skills with place value and introduced the thousand’s place. We have been working on standard form, word form, and expanded form.
Word Form=six thousand, four hundred twenty-seven
This week we will be discussing in greater depth the value of each place. The students will be taught strategies on how to compare and order numbers using the greater than and less than sign. We will be introducing some new Math Station games to the kids to practice these skills as well.
We skimmed the surface in Science last week. The kids made a title page and table of contents for their Science Journal and decorated them with Science Icons. On Friday we talked about “What is a Scientist?” We discovered all the different types of Scientists that exist and began working on our first project. In Science next week we will be going through Lab Safety procedures and learning the names of many Science tools. Towards the end of the week we will take a gallery walk with a partner and work on categorizing tools by tools that are used for observation, safety, measurement, or recording.
