September Curriculum Information

In math our first unit is understanding equal groups.  This unit focuses on students’ understanding of multiplication as combining equal groups. Students will be writing, representing, and solving multiplication problems in context. They will be identifying the number of groups and the number in each group (the factors), and the total number (the product). Students will also understand the relationship among skip counting, repeated addition and multiplication.  Lastly, we will build on the inverse relationship between multiplication and division.

Reading comprehension refers to the ability to acquire meaning from written text. When students enter third grade, they are no longer learning to read; they are now reading to learn. Our reading curriculum relies heavily on comprehension strategies instruction. That is, students are taught a variety of strategies to apply before reading, during reading, and after reading in order to make the most meaning from a text. In reading our first strategy we will be working on is, activating our schema with building our knowledge through different types of connections and making sure that we are choosing books that are at their level.

For Writer’s Workshop we will be focusing on Personal Narratives. Students will learn to take everyday events of their lives and stretch them out into a well-structured story. Students are learning that in order to do their very best to communicate these stories they need to create a plan, then apply that to their writing.

For our social studies unit we started our learning with comparing communities from the past to the present. We have discussed museums, and the importance of preserving and learning about history through objects and others research. Students now have an understanding of what makes a community.  We will be exploring local history that will allow students to grasp how communities change overtime. It will be fun for the students to get a hands on experience with the Plains Conservation Center.  They will learn about a modified homestead, one room school house, and daily chores that happened in the “good old days”.  Thank you for your support in helping your child choose an artifact to research for our class museum.

All About Miss Robart

        Hello! My name is Miss Robart, and I will be your child’s third grade teacher. I am excited to teach third grade because the kids have so much enthusiasm for learning and they make tremendous growth throughout the year. I taught Title One reading for three years for students in grades kindergarten through fifth, and then three years of third grade at Glen Oak in Columbus, Ohio. I taught first grade the past two years at Gold Rush. I moved too Denver two years ago from Ohio. I had always wanted to move to Colorado since I was in middle school after taking many family vacations skiing at the resorts in Colorado.

      I am originally from Piqua, Ohio. I have one sibling who is two years older, and she is a respiratory therapist at Ohio State University medical center. I attended Ohio University for my undergraduate program and I completed my master degree from Ashland University. I am eager to use all of the knowledge I gained to help your child be successful in third grade.

    I spent most of my summer reading, running, riding my bike and hiking.  I enjoy staying active and healthy. I love to run and play volleyball whenever I get a chance! I look forward to our year together, getting to know you and your kids, and building strong partnerships with families!
