    Happy May!
     The month of May is going to be very busy for our third graders! We are finishing the NJSLA assessment.  In reading, the students will focus on nonfiction topics that they are interested in and excited to learn about. They will explore various note-taking strategies while determining importance and synthesizing information.  In writing, students will start working on a persuasive writing piece. In math, the students are learning how to read and interpret graphs. They have also created their own graphs from data they collected after surveying classmates.   Reinforcing and reviewing math facts continues to be an area of importance in our math curriculum. We also started our Life Science unit which focuses on inherited traits and the environment, organisms that lived long ago and their changing environment, as well as life cycles. The students are enjoying our new classroom pets! The third graders are also looking forward to our field trip to the Bronx Zoo on May 8th!
