Dear Parents,
Each day we complete a lesson in class. We go over the correct answers and work out all of the problems on our workbook pages. I go over each homework problem with the students in class. As of right now, we complete our homework in class each day before the homework paper goes home. Some of the students are not paying attention during our instruction.

Dear Parents,
The Third Grade Field trip is May 17, 2016. We will be going to the planetarium and the zoo. Please see the field trip information sheet for more details.
Most of the students have mastered their multiplication facts. If your child has not mastered his or her multiplication facts, then he or she really needs to study the facts that have not been mastered yet.
STRIDE academy is an awesome tool. Login to Stride Academy kcc10242.
Monday: This week we will have a quiz on this skill and next week we will have a benchmark on it on Wednesday, May 4. Measure and estimate length (inches, feet, yards) , liquid volumes and masses of objects using units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l).1 Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve onestep word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., Solving two step word problems, including those with unknown quantities2 of 5
Tuesday: Solve problems with kilograms, grams, and liters.
Wednesday: Word problems with length, volumes, and masses
Thursday: Multiplication Drills (only the sets that you have not mastered yet), Quiz on this week’s skill.
Friday: Math activities to review measurement and other skills.

Trading Stickers, Combining Coins Family Letter
About the Mathematics in This Unit
Dear Families,
Our class is starting a new mathematics unit about addition and subtraction called Trading Stickers, Combining Coins. During this unit, students solve addition problems with 2digit and small 3digit numbers, solve subtraction problems involving 2digit numbers, and find combinations of numbers that add to 100. They work on understanding the place value structure of 3digit numbers as they solve problems.
Related Activities to Try at Home
Dear Families,
The activities below are related to the mathematics in the addition
and subtraction unit Trading Stickers, Combining Coins. You can use
the activities to enrich your child’s mathematical learning experience.
Practicing Addition Combinations In class, students will be
using a set of Addition Cards to review and practice the addition
combinations to 10 _ 10, often known as addition “facts.” Your child
is likely to have learned many or all of these combinations in Grade 2,
but he or she will benefit from reviewing them all. Your child can sort
these cards into “the ones I know” and “the ones I’m working on.”
The goal is for students to know and use these combinations fluently.
Sometimes for homework, students will choose a few combinations
that they are working on and think about strategies that will help
them remember those combinations. For example, one strategy a child
might use is this: What is 6 _ 7? I know 6 _ 6 _ 12, and 6 _ 7 is
one more than that, so it’s 13. You can help with these combinations
by listening to your child’s strategies or sharing ones that you use.
Addition Strategies in Context Help your child practice addition
strategies while you are shopping. When you buy an item, ask your
child to estimate how much two of them would cost. For example,
If a box of raisins costs $1.39, will two boxes cost less than $2.00?
More than $5.00? What is the exact amount?
How Did You Solve That? Ask your child to describe homework
problems and tell you about the strategy used to solve them.
Communication is an important part of mathematics, and students
need to describe their strategies through talking, writing, drawing, or using concrete objects. You can be an important audience.
Math and Literature Here are some suggestions of children’s books that contain relevant mathematical ideas about addition and subtraction. Look for these
books at your local library. Sayre, April. One Is a Snail, Ten Is a Crab:
A Counting by Feet Book. Viorst, Judith. Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich
