“OLL's challenging and hands-on science program more than prepared my daughter for the rigor of high school science.”

Teacher's Comments

Dear Parents,

In math, we have been working in Eureka Math Module 2--Place Value and Problem Solving with Units of Measure.  The 3rd graders have solved word problems involving time intervals within 1 hour by counting backward and forward using the number line and clock.  We moved on to building and decomposing a kilogram to reason about the size and weight of 1 kilogram, 100 grams, 10 grams, and 1 gram. (Ask your 3rd grader about the bags of rice and beans.)  This week, we will develop estimation strategies by reasoning about the weight in kilograms of a series of familiar objects involving metric weights within 100 and estimate to reason about solutions.

Last Friday, the 3rd graders painted the details on their totem animals.  We will put these together to form our totem poles and let you know when they are on display in the hall.

We have been sharing a St. James Cathedral Advent calendar.  Be sure to ask your student about some facts we have learned about the Cathedral.

Mrs. Marshall
