Costello Spotlight: Math & Reading Practice

Third grade has been working very hard learning their multiplication facts.  They enjoy playing multiplication games for extra practice.  We also just completed a unit on graphing.  While working in groups, the students surveyed both classes about their favorite things. Then they compiled data into bar graphs.  This was a great way to get to know each other, while doing math.  We continue to review math concepts through Dreambox and ORIGO Fundamental games.

For reading we are exploring expository non-fiction texts.  Students have collaborated in small group and with partners.   They enjoy sharing the new information they learned in the form of a book report, as well as sharing with partners.  They learned about many new topics ranging from venomous animals, to the life of Dr. Seuss, and important people in history.
