Curriculum Update January 27-31

Hi Families! I hope everyone is having a good week so far. If you haven't had a chance, please click on this link to sign-up for the item your child is bringing in for our third grade international festival. The committee needs all of the information by Friday. Thanks!
International Festival Sign-Up
Our taste-fest will be at 1:30, school performance at 3:00 and evening performance at 7:00.

The students will continue their international festival research. They have written questions that will help guide them in answering the driving question, "How does your heritage impact who you are today?"
The students will also read more about different geographical locations and create their own questions for discussion. Students will celebrate the Chinese New Year.

We will continue learning about fractions this week. Students will find equivalent fractions, equivalent fractions on a number line, whole numbers and fractions, how to use fractions and how to compare fractions on a number line.
