Miss Gentile's Third Grade Blog

We are not in the second marking period and these third graders are accomplishing a great deal! Thank you to all of the families who came out for conferences. It was wonderful getting to meet with you to discuss all of the progress we have seen!

Language Arts: In language arts, we have been working on author’s purpose. The students have explored texts and looked at authors who write to entertain, inform, and persuade us. We read a Reading Street story  called Tops and Bottoms and the students determined the author’s purpose of that text. As a fun project, each student chose a topic and then wrote from three different perspectives. They were able to write about the topic as an entertaining piece, an informative piece, and a persuasive piece. These projects are hanging in our third grade hallway so if you’re in the building check them out! We will move to main idea and details before the holidays. We will continue with our bi-weekly spelling tests and vocabulary testing as well through the month of December.

Writing: Students have been working on writing a narrative story using descriptive words and organization. We will move towards strong verbs and how-to writing pieces after Thanksgiving.

Math: We are wrapping up our unit on fractions this week and will be moving to measurement. Students will be taking a pre-test before we begin the unit and some will move to new math classes. A letter will be sent home next week indicating your child’s math teacher and some helpful practice tips at home. Please continue to practice multiplication facts each night and working through the weekly math packets!
