2016-2017 Third Grade Supply List

Third graders have been very busy!  February seems to disappear so quickly.  In math, we have wrapped up our unit on multiplication and division for now, although we are continuing to move ahead with the memorization of the basic facts to 12 (which we are glad to see students learning and practicing at home!) We have started our unit on fractions.  Students are learning that the numerator stands for the number of parts being named, while the denominator represents the number of equal parts that a whole is divided into. The fraction line means "out of" - so the fraction 2/3 means "two out of three equal parts."  In ELA, we are working side-by-side with social studies as students delve into the culture of both ancient and modern Japan.  We are enjoying the Magic Tree House book Dragon Of The Red Dawn paired with non-fiction text to really get into this fascinating topic.  In addition, we continue working on such ELA skills as four-point response writing, multiple choice strategies, inference and other reading skills to help us prepare for the NYS ELA test at the end of March.
