Grade Level News


In math we are finishing up with module 3. In module 3 we worked on multiplication and division facts. The students learned strategies to help them multiply and divide easily. We also learned patterns using input and output functions. The students truly enjoyed using the input and output functions because it was like a mind puzzle.

We will be moving on to Module 4 on January 17. The new module will be concentrating on determining area. This module will only cover 12 lessons. So, parents be looking for the new Apply book for homework. Your child has homework in math every night except on the days we take a test. Students are expected to return homework completed for the week on Friday.

The District Common Assessment will cover material from module 3 and 4 combined.



Throughout the third nine weeks, students will read Louisiana Purchase (Ready-for-Chapters) by Peter and Connie Roop and related texts to explore the question how can making deals benefit people in different ways? They will also express their understanding by forming an opinion about who benefitted the most from the Louisiana Purchase and supporting their opinion with text evidence. Students will read about how the United States acquired the Louisiana Territory and the social and economic impact that was experienced by different groups of people.

Social Science:

In the third 9 weeks, third grade Social Studies will learn about how Louisiana became a state, and all about the Louisiana Purchase.  We will delve into the historical figures that shaped our nation; such as, Thomas Jefferson and Napoleon. 

In third grade Science for the third 9 weeks, we will return to Life Structures.  We will develop models to describe organisms’ unique and diverse life cycles.  We will also be observing live crawfish in our class aquarium.
