What We've Been Up To:
This week we focused on using the standard algorithm for 2-digit addition and subtraction. We also worked on solving two-step word problems. Students took 2 quizzes. One of them should have already come home, and the other one will be coming home next week.
This week we worked on summarizing fiction texts. We also talked about having reading GRIT and how to set reading goals for ourselves. Students did some self-assessment to determine what they already do well as readers and what they can continue to work on.
We finished our first writing project. Students wrote about their favorite season. They planned, wrote, and revised & edited their first paragraph as a third grader. These writing pieces will be coming home next week. Keep an eye out!
We started our first science unit this week - Matter and Energy. This week we learned about different energy sources and how energy is converted from a source to an action (i.e. the energy in a battery can be converted into light)
