Polar Express Party Information

Posted on

Our party will be from 9:15-10:30 on Thursday, December 18th, aboard the 3rd grade classroom Polar Express.  If you are interested in helping run a center on the day of the party, or are willing to donate items, please click on the Polar Express picture below (for the Volunteer Spot link, enter your email, and click next). We would like each child to send in $1.00 to cover the cost of the Christmas party.  We are planning crafts, games, and snacks related to the Polar Express theme and will be combining all of the 3rd grade classes.

Also, we will be having a gift exchange within our own classroom, please help your child select a gift of approximately $3.00-$5.00. Girls will choose a gift for a girl and boys will choose a gift for a boy. The gifts need to be wrapped and labeled to a “Girl” or “Boy.”  Please make sure that your child writes his/her name, so we know whom to thank. The children may start bringing them in as soon as you would like to send them.  Make sure your child’s gift is here by Monday, December 15.

If  you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Unit 3 in Math

Posted on

In this unit, students explore ways to explore ways to measure things using the customary and metric systems of measurement. Students will solve problems that involve liquid volumes or masses given in the same unit by adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing and by using a drawing to represent the problem.

Students will also generate measurement data with halves and fourths of an inch such as hand spans and lengths of standing broad jumps and graph their data in a line plot.

You can help your child become familiar with these units of measure by working with measurements together. For example, you might estimate and measure the length of something in inches. You might use a measuring cup to explore how the cup can be used to fill pints, quarts, or gallons of liquid.

Click on the Measure It below for some extra measurement activities.
