January Learning Targets 

Reading:  Students will learn how to ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding referring to the text. Additionally, students will learn to recount events and infer characters' traits, what motivates a character to change, and lessons.

Students should practice independent reading daily for 30 minutes. Students may access their online MyON accounts at home. Reading logs must be completed daily between home and school. Parents, ensure that your child has read each day at home. Don’t forget to sign the reading log.

Math: Students just completed topic 4: Multiplication and Division. Throughout the month of January third graders will learn about the following:  In topic 8, use strategies and properties to help them add and subtract efficiently. In topic 10, students will learn how to multiply by multiples of 10. Moreover, students will solve word problems involving multiplication and division. You can expect to see homework that provides division practice. We encourage consistent practice with multiplication facts.

English Language Arts/Writing:  Students will explore their own “powers of reading” that help them access text. Students will explore fictional accounts of people who worked hard to build their reading powers. Students will then refer to the characters in these books as role models, as they begin to assess their own reading abilities. They will use information about their individual strengths and needs as readers to set goals for the development of their reading powers and will write a text-based informational paragraph about their goals. Additionally, in this unit of study, students will focus on one specific “reading power”: fluency. They will learn about the importance of fluency, set fluency goals, practice fluency, and demonstrate their fluent reading abilities.
