WORD STUDY A spelling pre-test will be completed every Monday. Spelling tests will be given on Fridays. The goal is for students to know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis when decoding and writing words. Students will read and write grade level appropriate irregularly spelled words. (what, were, was, there, their, they’re, friend, etc. ) Word study also includes a vocabulary component (context clues, adding affixes such as agreeable, disagreeable, etc. )
MATH Our math instruction is aligned to match the National Common Core Standards. As a result, students throughout the district will be taught the same instructional concepts within the same trimester. Third grade has three Big Ideas that are tied to other instructional concepts. This helps students develop a deeper understanding of math notions and their interrelationship. Other math concepts and skills will be taught in addition to the “Big Ideas”.
3 rd Grade Mathematic “Big Ideas” Unit 1 --Multiplication & Division Computation I can understand multiplication by thinking about groups of objects. I can understand division by thinking about how one group can be divided into smaller groups. I can use what I know about multiplication and division to solve word problems. I can multiply and divide within 100 easily and quickly because I know how multiplication and division are related. Unit 2—Number Systems, Relationships, & Representations I can understand that fractions represent part(s) of a whole, part(s) of a set, or distance(s) on a number line. I can use models of fractions to represent numbers equal to, less than or greater than one. I can order, identify, and measure fractions (halves, thirds, fourths, sixths and eighths to solve problems that involve comparing, ordering and identifying equivalents. Unit 3 --Dimensional Measurement Relationships I can recognize and measure the area and perimeter of two-dimensional shapes. I can understand that rectangular arrays can be decomposed into identical rows or into identical columns. I can decomposing rectangles into rectangular arrays of squares (multiplication).
SCIENCE Four science units will be taught: § Reason for the Seasons § Living Things in their Environment § Force and Motion § States of Matter
