3rd Graders 2016 - 2017 What should I be doing?
THINGS TO PRACTICE AT HOME!!
1. Read! Read! Read! Reading now each day is going to keep those reading skills strong to start the year off great! Reading is so very important for solving the Math questions!!!
2. Practice those 1st & 2nd grade Math facts. Addition: 8 + 5; 9 + 4 & Subtraction: 12 - 5; 8 - 6 your child should be able to give the answer to these type of questions before you can say: 1 potato; 2 potato; 3 potato!!
3. Does your child know the value of all the coins & currency? Place a group of coins on the table can they tell you the name of each coin and how much it is worth Can they add up all the coins?
4. Practice telling TIME on the digital clock! Must know how to say quarter after 3!
Math Games!! Math Games!!! On the Slack webpage, look under Teacher Webpages for Services......then click on Technology.......next click Online Acitivities....... last click on 3rd - 5th / MATH! There you will see a page full of math games!
Practice at Home!!
Practice skip counting by 7's; 8's & 9's!. Use flash cards for addition facts ($1 at Dollar Tree), regular deck of cards to play 21 or battle (lay out 2 cards, then add the numbers, $1 at Dollar Tree), there are many APPS for the phones to use flash cards and many, many websites on the computer!
Work on the subtraction by checking with adding. If you have any questions about the homework or HW Calendar please get with us! You can send a note, conference, email or FB ( Math Mrs. Garig)!!
THE ANALOG CLOCK!!
Look! Look! Look! 3rd graders telling time on the analog clock is a skill that should be considered mastered! ! Knowledge of these clock words is part of the 3rd Grade skills to be mastered. Please work on this skill at home each day!
12 is noon, midnight, 1 hour, o'clock or 00.
3 is 15 after, quarter after, 45 min. till.
6 is 30 min after, 30 min till, half past.
9 is quarter till, 15 min till, 45 min after.
To keep this skill strong students should practice daily!!!
Zoo animals and students make for a great day!! I think the animals were a little nervous seeing all those students!
Perfect time to work on these Thermometer skills! The temperature is changing each day! 3rd Graders this skill should be mastered!
Thermometer - finding the correct Temperature. The tick marks between each number is where students have difficulty. Some thermometers will change the counting pattern from counting by 2 or counting by 1! Look for thermometers that are round, like a clock.
Math Rules to Follow:
1.) Read the story and question carefully.
2.) Underline clue words in the story and the question.
3.) Circle the question, which is the sentence with the question mark.
4.) Write numbers with clue words in the question you circled.
5.) Write a math problem with numbers or draw a picture.
6,) Choose the answer that looks like my work.
