This Thursday is Halloween. We will not be dressing up at school that day. Please leave costumes at home. This Saturday is our Masquerade Festival at Wolf Canyon, and students and parents are encouraged to wear there costumes to the event. There will be games and food for all to enjoy. The 3rd grade team will be hosting a Nacho booth! Proceeds will go towards upcoming field trip expenses.
This week in:
Language Arts- Continue with Character Traits, Sequence of Events, and Point of View.
Math– Continue learning about Multiplication strategies and solving for the unknown. Use the Associative Property of Multiplication to solve math problems.
Writing- Start a new narrative using facts from an informative article about Prairie Dogs. Writing will include character development and dialogue.
Social Studies/ Science- California Native Americans- We will focus on 4 tribes throughout the different regions of California. We will be focusing on how the tribes use natural resources to create their shelters. Students will be asked to collect material in preparation for creating a scaled model of a native shelter the following week. Please check their homework folders on Monday and ask them about it.
With your child: “What is the Associative Property of Multiplication?” (The Associative Property allows us to group factors in any order to help us solve the problem. For example, (4 x 4) x 5 = (4 x 5) x 4. Moving left to right, it is easier to multiply 4 x 5 first, then multiple that product by 4, rather than 4 x 4 first, then multiply that product by 5. Either way, we get the same answer of 80.)
