Teacher Georgiana Lemmons - Third Grade

March 18-22

We have an exciting and busy week ahead of us! Please let me know if your child will not be in school on Thursday or Friday of this week.

Math
Monday: Module 5, Lesson 29- Compare fractions with the same numerator using <,> or =, and use a model to reason about their size.
Homework: Lesson 29

Tuesday: Module 5, Lesson 30-Partition various wholes precisely into equal parts using a number line method.
Homework: Lesson 30

Wednesday: Review/ End of Module Assessment

Thursday: Review/End of Module Assessment

Friday: Review of Quarter 3 skills

ELA
This week we continue to focus on Informational text.  The emphasis will be on text features (flow charts, diagrams, drawings) as well as a review of sequence, cause/effect, and context clues. The Informational outcome assessment will be on Wednesday.

Over the past few weeks, the students have needed many reminders to read directions carefully. In both ELA and Math, I have been demonstrating how to read directions/story problems. First, read the all the directions to get the gist of it, then reread each line thinking about the purpose and finally, decide what actions need to be taken. The students have been very successful when focusing on one direction at a time rather than trying to conquer all the directions at once.

Science
We will start the Life Science unit this week which will continue it into 4th quarter.

Writing
We will have our Fairy Tale adaption celebration this week. We will also spend some time writing poems and writing letters to our 2nd grade Buddies.

Important Dates:
Monday: LWSRA Wheelchair Basketball Assembly
Tuesday: Hot Lunch, 4th Quarter Book Talk
Wednesday: LWSRA Basketball game at HCMS 6pm
Friday: Library, TIGER Talk: Grit/Growth Mindset

Have a relaxing and safe Spring Break!
