Math Activities: Students will finish up Chapter 10 on fractions and take an assessment on Friday.
Math Learning Targets: Students will be able to represent fractions on a number line, use models to find equivalent fractions and compare two fractions. We are continuously working on multiplication facts as it is very helpful for students to know these facts as the math gets more challenging!
We are using Xtramath.org to practice multiplication facts so students won’t forget what they have learned! Log-in information has been sent home. We will be using it at school but it would be great for students to practice at home as well!
Multiplication facts are so important in 3rd grade. You can also find a pack of multiplication cards at the Dollar Tree and have your child study them. Freerice.com is great website to use to practice multiplication. Just click on the math link!
Science Learning Targets: SC.3.P.10.4 – Demonstrate that light can be reflected, refracted, and absorbed.
Science Learning Activities: Students will be investigating what happens when light is reflected, refracted, and absorbed.
Check out this science site for at-home experiments to strengthen science skills!
Reflection: light bounces off an object
Refraction: light is bent or slows down when it passes through an object
Absorb: light is taken in by an object
Shadow: a dark place created when light is blocked by an object
