Hello all!
This week in math we wrapped up our work with multiplication and division. Your student should be multiplication and division masters! Now we want them to work towards fluency with their multiplication and division facts. Please continue to practice with them regularly on mastering their facts. If ever you need ideas for practicing math facts, I have a tab on my blog (the 4th grade blog) that is called math facts. It has tons of ideas, websites, games, and even IXL assignments for practicing math facts. The homework this week will be as follows:
Week of 12/11
3rd grade:
Monday- IXL FF.6
Tuesday- IXL FF.7
Wednesday- IXL FF.8
Thursday- IXL FF.9

Thanks and have a great week!

It was so great to meet with each of you and discuss the progress your child is making. Thank you for taking time to meet with me!

Reading: This week we determined the setting, conflict, main characters, theme, and solution on two books by the same author: Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type and Giggle, Giggle, Quack.  Next week, we will be comparing and contrasting the two books we read from last week.
