“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,

I hope your 3rd grade scientist told you about last Friday's science lab work with Dr. Vaughn:  1.) planting bean seeds,  2.) discovering plants have different pigments.

In math this week, we will identify numbers from scrambled place value names, solve place value word problems, and discuss and apply multi-digit addition.  We will make proof drawings to show that addition is correct and discuss why it is necessary to align places before adding.  We have been working with the math white boards and the Secret Code Cards (another name for expanding a number as in 235 = 200 + 30 + 5).

The Dictation work last week focused on "culture" (as we connect this with our social studies).  This week, the Dictation will focus on our science topic--Photosynthesis.

I look forward to seeing you this evening during Curriculum Night.        

Mrs. Marshall
