Topic 15:  Attributes of Two-Dimensional Shapes

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:

Using a Dictionary or Glossary

Many words have more than one meaning, or definition. You can use a dictionary or a glossary to check the exact meaning of a word or a phrase. A dictionary lists words in alphabetical order. Each entry gives the pronunciation, the part of speech, and the meaning of the word. A glossary is like a dictionary. It is an alphabetical list of vocabulary words in a book. Each entry explains the meaning of a word as it is used in that book. To find the right meaning of a word, first read all the definitions. Then see which meaning makes sense in the sentence you are reading.
