Keep practicing multiplication facts to automaticity, this is THE biggest thing you can do to boost success in 3rd-grade math and prepare for 4th grade!
Math Learning Goals: 3D Shapes
3.6A(R)- classify and sort two- and three-dimensional figures, including cones, cylinders, spheres, triangular and rectangular prisms, and cubes, based on attributes using formal geometric language
3.6B(S)- use attributes to recognize rhombuses, parallelograms, trapezoids, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories
Math homework is due this Thursday. It was passed out today, Friday. Please study all of your multiplication facts this week. (0’s-10’s) Students are expected to recall facts to multiply up to 10 by 10 with automaticity.
Multiplication Test: Mad Three Minutes
We will take a multiplication test on Tuesday this week due to benchmarks. The test consists of 30 multiplication problems. Instead of giving one minute, students will be given three minutes. This grade will be averaged with last week's Mad Three Minute in the grade book.
Science Learning Goals: Animal Adaptations
3.9A Observe and describe the physical characteristics of environments and how they support populations and communities of plants and animals within an ecosystem.
3.9B Identify and describe the flow of energy in a food chain and predict how changes in a food chain affect the ecosystem such as removal of frogs from a pond or bees from a field.
