Upcoming Out and Abouts
We will take a tour of the Goodwill Outlet Store in Hillsboro. We will be taking our first TriMet bus trip to get to the store!
I would like to do one more book order before the holidays. Students will bring home catalogs this week, including a special gift guide. If you would like me to place books in a paper bag so they can be given as gifts, just let me know! I will need to submit the orders by Wednesday, December 5 to make sure the books arrive before winter break. Visit our class book club page for more info: https://orders.scholastic.com/L79X9. Books from our previous order will arrive this week!
Before Thanksgiving Break, we visited the Forest Grove Goodwill store in connection with our study of consumerism and waste. In this unit, we will focus four big questions:
- Where does the "stuff" we use everyday come from?
- How does the way we live affect the Earth?
- Where does our trash go?
- What are ways we can conserve energy and natural resources?
This week in Third Grade Math we will be finishing up our unit on place value and moving into a study of geometry. Students who have demonstrated proficiency in adding and subtracting with 2- and 3-digit numbers will have the opportunity to complete independent extension activities this week. Many students are still working to develop and use strategies to solve multi-digit subtraction problems. Class activities and homework this week will focus on this skill.
For homework, students need to complete the "More Subtraction Problems" worksheet.
This week in Fourth Grade Math we will review multi-digit multiplication using the array model. Students will discuss and share their own strategies, as well as learn how to use an algorithm to solve multi-digit multiplication problems. This week we will explore multiplication with money. We will also continue our fluency and automaticity with 0-12 multiplication facts and continue our in class goal work this week.
For homework students are required to complete Home Connections 15: Coins & Arrays. Questions/Comments/Concerns, please contact Becky at firstname.lastname@example.org
