Math Series

This year, we will be using a new math series – Eureka.  Although this is a new curriculum for 3rd grade, the students should be familiar with the series, as they used Eureka in their 2nd grade classrooms.  Eureka offers many different components to each lesson.  The lesson components include building fluency, solving problems using multiple strategies, demonstrating understanding by applying learned strategies to real-world scenarios, and debriefing each lesson through the use of discussion questions.  I am excited to explore this new curriculum with the students this year!


Math Support

Mrs. Longenecker and Mrs. Doulin will be joining our class this year for math.  They will be offering push-in support for specific students.  While I am working with one group of students, Mrs. Longenecker and Mrs. Martin will be working with the others.  This model will allow all children to engage in small-group learning, as well as increase individualized attention in new learned skills/concepts.

Zearn

After finishing our daily math lessons through Eureka, students will use Zearn to complete activities on the computer that mirror what we learned during that day’s lesson.  Students will engage in activities to reinforce what they learned in a fun and exciting way.  Students should be familiar with Zearn, as they used this site in their 2nd grade classrooms as well.  Students should log in with the usernames and passwords they were given in school.  These will be placed inside the front cover of their planners. Once finished with their Zearn lessons, students will have the ability to play Prodigy, as mentioned below.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions regarding the Zearn program.
