Third Grade - Mrs. Eberhardt
Our last full week before spring break! I can't believe we start the downward slide to the end of the year. Our week is pretty normal. We will have a math quiz on Friday, so please let me know if your student will be gone so I can maybe have them take it earlier! 3rd grade will be hosting mass this week. And we will be hosting stations of the cross the Monday we get back from spring break!
On Tuesday, students who bring in $100 for the basque dinner will have an extra recess. Students may wear green on Friday to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!
If you would like a parent/teacher conference - please reach out!
Fractions are tough now for most of the class. If you can, look over your child's homework. It always includes an example up top for parents and students to sew how to do it. We've started to work with equivalent fractions and that can be a hard concept for students to grasp (and draw).
This week in reading, we will be working with our magazines. Looking forward to the great concepts we get to learn about! Nonfiction is always a particular favorite of the class!
I can't say this enough, please keep practicing multiplication facts with your child, as well as skip counting! There are many ways to do this outside of flashcards! A site we use in class is http://www.timestables.me.uk. Multiplication (and division) fluency is very important for future success in math. Remember for each fact family they pass off (40 problems in 3 minutes), they earn another topping at our multiplication sundae party at the end of the year. We've been doing timings in class so watch for those papers to come home to see what multiplication fact your student needs to work on.
