Quarter 3 Curriculum Overview

Reading

We will begin the quarter by reading and analyzing news articles and letters to the editor. There is a focus on finding evidence to support points the author is making. Later this quarter, we will switch to fictional texts. We will be reading folktales, fables, and myths. The focus will be on making inferences and determining the theme.

Math

We are currently learning about adding, subtracting, and multiplying fractions. Then we will learn about the relationship between fractions and decimals. Have your child look for examples of decimals the next time you go shopping! After decimals, we will study geometry, including measuring angles with a protractor.

Writing

We will begin the quarter with opinion writing. Then we will introduce narrative writing.

Social Studies

We will begin with a unit on European explorers who came to California. At the end of the quarter, we will learn about missions.

Science

Our science unit this quarter will be all about energy. Students will study potential and kinetic energy, and they will learn how energy can change from one form into another, such as mechanical energy becoming heat energy.
