Topic 6
Connecting Area to Multiplication and Addition  

We will begin to learn multiplication in 3rd grade!  Please remember to study multiplication facts each night with your child. 

Memorization is the key to learning multiplication facts! Your child will have a "Math Fact Café" sheet to work each night to reinforce multiplication facts, but they will also have numerous opportunities to work on it throughout the day. 

Your child will have a "Math Fact Cafe'" test every Friday.

*Please make sure you are helping your child study their multiplication facts each night. It is imperative that your child knows their multiplication facts in 3rd grade!

Describing Cause and Effect

A heavy storm hits and a large tree falls. The storm is the cause, or the reason the tree falls. The fallen tree is the effect, or what happens as a result of the storm. The connection between these two events is an example of a cause-and-effect relationship. Understanding cause and effect can help you see how events and ideas are related. Writers often use the words such as because, if/then, since, so, therefore, and as a result to signal and explain a cause-and-effect relationship.



An adverb is a word that tells something about a verb, or action. Many adverbs in in -ly and tell how or in what way. When you write, you can use adverbs to help your audience picture clearly what is happening.
