The Power to Infer!

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on January 12, 2018

We read a book called The Surprise and the students practiced inferring by looking at the pictures.  This was a book without words so the students had to make predictions about what they think was going to happen next by observing closely to the illustrations.  This week we read The Farmer and the Clown and the students practiced completing a chart while reading: Fact Question Infer.  Ask your child how they did?

When readers learn to infer while reading:

  • they learn to look for clues in text, in pictures, and in their own knowledge that will help them to make sense out of the text.
  • they are encouraged to become good “book detectives.”
  • they learn that some authors write very little text but leave clues for the reader to discover and interpret.
  • they understand that the expression “less is more” means that fewer words on the page means more thinking for the reader.
  • they are learning to fill in, in their heads, what’s not written on the page.
  • they are more likely to say, “Oh, I get it now!” while they read, than “Huh? I don’t get it.”       – Adrienne Gear, Reading Power

New Math Unit – Addition and Subtraction

0

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on December 7, 2017

We have started a mathematics unit on addition and subtraction.  Your child will develop strategies for adding and subtracting whole numbers by using addition charts, mental math, estimation, base ten blocks, place-value charts, and pencil and paper.  In this unit, your child will:

  • Recall basic addition and subtraction facts
  • Identify and apply relationships between addition and subtraction
  • Add and subtract 2-digit numbers
  • Use mental math to add and subtract
  • Estimate sums and differences
  • Add and subtract 3-digit numbers

The ability to use a variety of strategies to add and subtract leads to the development of a strong sense of number.  Here are some suggestions for activities you can do with your child.

  • Play store with your child.  Price some of the items in your home in cents (for example, the cup of noodles costs 149 cents and the baguette costs 35 cents.) You are the shopper and your child is the cashier.  Have your child add the cost of the items you buy.
  • Roll a number cube 4 times.  Use the numbers rolled to make 2-digit numbers.  Have your child subtract the lesser number from the greater number.  Repeat the activity.  This time, roll the number cube 6 times and make two 3-digit numbers.

Counting Coins

Posted by mrsbondgrade3 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on November 21, 2017

We are practicing counting coins for a couple lessons in math. It always seem like it should be an easy task for the kids, but for many it is not. We looked at pictures of coins and practiced naming and counting them. I sent home some practice pages to help us out. Please work at them when you have time and send them back when they are done. If you have time to count real coins that would be great too.  Thanks a bunch for the help!
