Can you believe it is already May?! We only have 20 more school days left until summer break, I can't believe how fast it is going by. We've had two wonderful field trips in the last few weeks...both of which occured in mostly snow! We've had the art show, money projects, literacy book publishing...I could go on and on! It seems like the end of April and May have so many events we can hardly keep them all straight! To help you out I've put all the events I know about on the schdule tab, so keep checking there to help you out! Coming up this week throughout the school is the book fair and father daughter dance.
In our class, we will be finishing up Unit 10 this week. This was our unit about money and story problems. The students are doing a great job of distinguishing the types of operations the questions are asking as well as borrowing and carrying. This is a very important skill for third grade and most of them have already mastered it!
In science we will be continuing to work on our rock unit. We've just completed another experiement about erosion and will be looking at the rock properties and the way geologists use information about rocks to help in various ways.
I hope you
