WELCOME TO 3rd GRADE WITH MRS. DUBOVICI
Week of October 16-20
Friday, October 20th – No School
I finally was able to activate the IXL account. Please check your child’s planner for the username and password. I want to thank you all for your patience and understanding.
We will be reviewing Ch. 1,2,3,4, and 5 to get ready for our Unit 1 test. At the same time, we will begin working on Unit 2. The lessons from the unit 2 will help the students understand some of the characteristics of God (e.g. God is powerful, loving, holy, great, just, and merciful), the basic truths of our faith and the Apostles’ Creed. We will continue to pray the Rosary a decade a day. Please send in your prayer intentions. Unit 1 test will be on Thursday, October 19th.
We will begin chapter 7- Subtraction. This chapter concentrates on different aspects of subtraction such as: subtract mentally, estimate differences or exact answer, problem solving investigations, subtract with regrouping, subtract 3-4 digit numbers, and subtract across zeros. The students will be able to understand that this operation involves repeated calculations: subtract the ones, then the tens, then the hundreds, and so on, regrouping as necessary.
Review vocabulary: add, difference, equals sign, minus sign, subtract, sum, addend, equal, estimate, equal, plus sign, subtraction sentence, and regroup
New vocab. – inverse operations = addition and subtractions are opposites. Math quiz to check the progress will be on Thurs. Oct. 19th.
