Hello Parents please see updates and homework below:

Updates for the week of September 11th   (M. Seerattan)
MATH (3A&3B) ·         Read, write, and understand place value to 10,000.

·         Write 5-digit numbers in expanded, standard and word form.

·         Develop skills in solving word problems.

·         Mental math strategies – look for 10. Students should know all the numbers that add up to ten(2+8;7+3;6+4;5+5;1+9). This is then used to solve questions like 4+8+6. Ss identify 6+4=10 and then can easily add 10+8=18. All this is done without counting on fingers.

SCIENCE(3A&3B) Explain what is predicting in science.

Practice predicting skills.

List steps in the scientific process.

WRITING(3A) Use work done in the prewriting stage to draft a descriptive paragraph about their Superhero self and sidekick.
GRAMMAR(3A) Distinguish and identify statements and questions.
LITERACY (3A) We have being reading The BFG in class and spent some time looking at the comprehension strategy: Character analysis.

Analyzing a character through their actions and words helps the reader to understand why a character does what they do.
