Welcome to 3rd Grade

We are ROCKING remote learning!!  

Mantra of the Week: We've got this! 

What are we doing in school this week? Here are the LEARNING TARGETS for 9/28 - 10/2:


*I can model division as the unknown factor in multiplication using arrays and tape diagrams.

*I can interpret the quotient as the number of groups or the number of objects in each group using units of 2 and 3.

*I can skip-count objects in models to build fluency with multiplication facts using units of 4.

*I can use the Zearn and Moby Max apps to review and strengthen my math skills.



*I can give myself a comprehension check and be sure I am being an active reader.

*I can make predictions based on what happened and knowledge of how stories tend to go.  

*I can explain how I know something might happen in the story.  

*I can retell a story, in parts, as I go.

*I can record my daily reading in my reading log and look for patterns in my reading.



*I can write fast and furious, without stopping after crafting a new lead.  

*I can use mentor texts to give me ideas to try in my own writing.  

*I can develop the heart of my story.  

*I can write new paragraphs when I come to a new subtopic. 

*I can keep my writing goals in mind as I write and work to make progress on those goals. 



*I can make a plan, or a simple checklist, to help me learn. 



*I can understand and demonstrate what it means to be a good digital citizen.

*I can successfully turn in assignments on time via Google Classroom.

*I can stay focused, participate, and be a good listener in Zoom breakout rooms and in the main Zoom room.

*I will use the chat feature on Zoom only when requested to do so by my teacher.

*I will keep my microphone muted unless I am called on to speak.
