Across the year children have been writing about reading in a variety of ways. Here are how a few children chose to track their reading thinking today.
Making a character web that includes specific evidence for your observation.
Making notes about the major events in a fiction chapter book.
Recording the authors use of figurative and what the author actually meant.
Recording what you know and wonder while reading.
The State Test dates for ELA and Math are below.

May 1st and 2nd – Math
Tuesday February 13th
8:30 – 9:00
We’ve started learning division! In grade three children explore all the different contexts that require division and even try creating their own division stories. To practice solving division equations we use multiplication. Division is the inverse of multiplication and can be seen as a “missing factor” problem. For example 35/7 = ? is the same as 7 x ? = 35.
In these images children practice playing a missing factor game that uses array cards.
Friday, January 19 from 8:30 – 9:30 AM in Room 226
Join us to learn how we prepare Peck Slip students for the state tests in the Spring, and how you can help reduce anxiety around testing.
Kids practice their multiplication fact cards – the expression is on one side, the product on the other. By the end of third grade all students should have their facts memorized from 0 x 0 to 10 x 10!
Kids in 324 enjoy reading, and writing about reading, in their newly expanded reading nook!
All kids could use some extra math practice at home, particularly with their basic facts which should be memorized. These include addition and subtraction single-digit facts (such as 7 + 8 and 15 – 8) and multiplication (from 1 x 1 to 10 x 10).
Use the attached sheets to learn more about how to work with your kids at home. The first page suggests activities and resources. The second page shows addition and subtraction strategies and the third page shows multiplication and division strategies.
