What We Are Learning Next Week!
Reading: This week, we will complete our books about cause and effect relationships. Readers understand that in-text events happen (effects), along with the reason why they happen (causes). When students recognize this relationship, comprehension is increased.

Remember the picture books If You Give a Moose a Muffin, or If You Take a Mouse to School? We're using our knowledge of cause and effect to write our own!
Math: We will begin topic 5. Topic 5 focuses on applying strategies to achieve fluency with multiplication and division facts within 100. For the past several units, students have learned conceptually what it means to multiple and divide - now we will start working on our quick fact recall! The topic 5 test is scheduled for Friday, December 8.

Students DAILY use the site in class to do a quick assignment, so hopefully more students are starting to feel comfortable using the website!
Writing: This week we will work on our cause and effect books! We will use our rough drafts to work on run-on sentences and editing!
Social Studies: This week, students will continue working on the BIG THIRD GRADE CITY PROJECT!

This is a solely in-school, group project. Students will work in cooperative groups to take all of their knowledge about urban, rural, suburban, land features, laws, government, etc - to create a brand new city or community. Students will create laws, a blueprint, and eventually - a large scale model of their city.

Supplies needed: Students are encouraged to bring in EMPTY boxes (crackers, cereal, tissue,) or empty paper towel/toilet paper tubes.

We will share our finished products with parents and school members on Friday, December 22!
