Third Grade Weekly Update
Here is a look at what were working on this week:
Novel Study: Charlotte’s Web – Ch: 14 – 17
-Each week we’ll be reading several chapter and completing packets that include short answers that require textual evidence, sequencing, multiple choice, character analysis and dictionary work.

-Math, Unit 6: Geometry
Mod. 1: Quadrilaterals
Focus: Students continue to strengthen their understanding of polygons. They build a variety of polygons out of tooth- picks including squares, rectangles, and a variety of rhombuses. Lastly, they will sort quadrilaterals and and write quadrilateral riddles.
CCSS: 3.G.A.1 Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
