We reviewed the box plan and the editing prompt in our writing work this week and continued with our usual routines and spelling sorts.
We continued with work on fractions this week. Students worked on finding fractions of a number. We played some games to reinforce the concepts covered so far and found ways to share seven brownies between four people. The students have been identifying multiplication facts they need to work on memorising and setting themselves goals.
Unit of Inquiry
This week we finished our 'sharing the planet' unit. We played a sharing game which mimicked the way countries have to share renewable resources like fish or rivers. The students did a lot of good thinking about how everyone could get what they need.
The students reviewed all the knowledge content from the unit so far and made slideshows with their water usage data from home.
We answered the last two big student questions from this unit: 'Where did water on Earth come from?' and 'What is the richest country in the world and what is their water access like?'
Next week we will begin our new unit; 'how the world works'. The central idea is:
Understanding forces helps us to use them.
We are a Grade 3 class in Singapore. We hope you enjoy sharing our learning journey with us this year. Our class teacher is Ms. Vicky and our Teacher's Assistant is Ms. Noreen.
