1. Third Grade C lass Newsletter
• This week in class we will be performing
some mathematic activities to help the
students better understand how to apply
mathematic skills in daily living.
2. Unit Plan
In class we will start a project. This project will teach the students
how to apply their mathematic skills in their daily life. The class
activities will be guided by the following questions:
– How can you use simple addition, subtraction and even division in your
– How can you mathematically solve word problems using addition,
subtraction, and division?
– How can you use addition to check your subtraction work?
– What is 30 divided by 15?
– If you go to the supermarket to buy groceries and the total amount is
$155. If you hand the cashier $200, how much money should the
cashier give you in return?
– If you have 20 candy canes to give away, and you give all of them to
10 friends how many will each friend get? Assuming each friend will get
the same amount.

4. Role of the Teacher
• I think one of the most important roles of a teacher is to
be a manager.
• They have to manage the classroom, manage their time, and
manage different personalities.
• The classroom teacher also has to be able to be innovative
and able to adapt. Teachers roles in the classroom are
always changing, so teachers must always be ready to adapt.
• The most important role of the teacher I think is to
prepare students to move out into the world as a productive
member of society. Teachers must teach students proper
manners and appropriate behavior. Teachers must give
students every opportunity and chance for success.
• Teachers should be a role model.

7. Benefits of the Unit
One of the benefits of the this math unit is that
it will not only teach students mathematic skills,
but also how to apply these skills.
Students will be able to use these mathematic
skills in daily life.
This unit of mathematics will teach students how
to problem solve.
This mathematics unit will teach students how to
work through difficult situations, not just in math
but other areas as well.
8. Standards and objectives of Unit
• One standard for third grade mathematics and
the study of numbers and operations is to solve
addition and subtraction problems, including word
problems, involving two- and three-digit numbers
with and without regrouping.
• An obj ective to this math standard is to be able to estimate sums and
differences by using many options including rounding.
• Another standard for mathematics and the study
of numbers and operations is dividing whole
numbers using two-digit dividends and one-digit
• An objective for this standard is to recognize division as repeated
9. Project-Based Learning
Project Based Learning is a form of instructional
This type of learning gauges the students likes and
interests and teaches them based upon these
In Project Based Learning students work together
to achieve a common goal.
In this type of learning students usually participate
in group activities in which the students work
together to complete assignments.
This engages students to their own thoughts and
allows them to form their own ideas and opinions.
This type of learning will be used in my classroom
in the use of group projects and group
