Week of January 19th-22nd

Hello 3rd Grade Families!
It was our first full week back in the 2021 New Year. We covered a lot this week, including celebrating our unique traits and differences. I will post a picture of our hands we created and decorated to share our unique traits. We also dove into division this week. Have your child show you some of the different ways they practiced division. I was so proud of the strategies and work they showed. The big challenge we will face these next few weeks is determining the correct operation in word problems. You can help at home by asking them the difference between multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction and have them model and explan. Division-separating equally. Multiplication-joining equal groups. Addition-combining two or more things for a total. Subtraction-taking away to find a difference. 
Don't forget that Monday is a holiday. School will start Tuesday next week. 
Here is the 3rd Grade Smore to see what is coming up for next week:
Hope you have a great 3 day weekend. Thanks for sharing your awesome kiddos with me this year.
