Describing Comparisons

Authors work carefully to show connections among ideas in their writing. This means that they make sure readers understand how sentences and paragraphs are connected and why the connections are important. Sometimes a writer shows connections by making a comparison between facts and ideas. Comparing means showing how two or more things are alike and different. Signal words such as like, as, also, and both show how things are alike. Signal words such as however, but, different, and unlike show how things are different.

Topic 12:  Understanding Fractions as Numbers  

We will continue 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!



Language Focus:


Coordinating Conjunctions

A conjunction is a word that is used to join other words, groups of words, or sentences. The words and, but, or, and so are conjunctions.

  • Use and when you mean “also.”

    • Birds and dogs are my favorite animals.

  • Use but when you want to show a difference.

    • Mario’s cat is playful, but Lila’s cat likes to sleep.

  • Use or when you want to show a choice.

    • Dad says we can have a kitten or a puppy.

  • Use so when you want to give a reason.

    • I love animals, so I like having a lot of pets.
