Greetings from Mrs. Justice! I have the honor of teaching your child math this school year! My #1 goal will be to help your child LOVE learning mathematics as much as I do. Equipping students with tools and strategies to prepare them for the future will be a priority. I believe there is great value in mistakes and see them as opportunities to grow and learn. The attached document is a Parent Roadmap to Common Core, 3rd Grade Mathematics. It will show you what your child should have learned in 2nd grade, will learn this year in 3rd grade, and what is to come in 4th grade.
3rd Grade Math Units Include:
||Place Value/ Rounding & Estimation
||Addition and Subtraction to 1,000
||Multiplication: Commutative and Identity Properties
||Multiplication: Associative and Distributive Properties
||Division and 2 Step Word Problems (all operations)
||Basic Fractions and Whole Numbers as Fractions
||Time to the Nearest Minute & Elapsed Time
||Measurement: Length, Volume, & Mass
||Area & Perimeter
We will continue to use GO Math! as our textbook and your child may have homework from our Standards Practice Book on occasion. However, I will supplement instruction with rich, engaging activities from various research based sources.
