This week we continued to study nonfiction texts. We even practiced being detectives and searching for an author's hidden opinion within facts. Did you know that the adjectives an author chooses give clues to their opinion of the information? Well, your child knows that and that, my friends, is critical thinking at it's finest. So proud of these kids!
Place value and rounding have been our focus in math. We are building on skills we learned in second grade to help us solve third grade level problems. So important for the students to see how mathematical concepts build upon each other.
We've spent a short bit of time discussing how the Native Americans and French fur traders lived in Michigan hundreds of years ago.
Finally, please know we had a special visitor come see us this week from the Child Advocacy Center. Amy Dalman came and talked with students about how to keep themselves safe from anyone who might wish to hurt them. It was indeed important information. I would encourage you to ask your child about what they heard from this conversation.
Looking ahead to important dates:
