Mathematics: Go Math will be the publisher we will be using, however learning will be Florida standards based. Students will be working out of a workbook in class as well as interactive centers. Home practice pages may be sent home occassionally in order to hone in on weak skills. Practicing basic multiplication and addition facts at home will help your child immensely.
Unit # 1 Focus Standard: MAFS.3.NBT.1.1 - Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100. (DOK 1) MAFS.3.NBT.1.2 - Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction. (DOK 1)
Unit # 2 Represent and Solve Multiplication
Unit # 3 Use Properties to Multiply and Divide (
Unit # 4 Multiplication and Division Word Problems with Unknowns (
iReady Diagnostic Window: August 14th-August 31st
Science and STEAM: I am a great advocate for science. This year thrid graders must complete a science projects as individuals, partners, or small groups. Students will be journaling experiments and investigations in class as well as working in small groups to find ways to solve STEAM challenges with scrap materials. Pictures will be sent home via Class Dojo so that you know what we have been up to.
