For the months of January and February the third graders are going to be "eating" Math Sandwiches. YUM! Basically this means that 3 days a week we will devote two learning sessions to Math instead of just one. It takes two slices of bread to make a sandwich, right? Then two sessions of Math must make a Math Sandwich! Religion and Science have enjoyed bonus times for the first semester. These two subjects will step aside just a bit in order to provide enough extra minutes in Math. My strategy is to "taste" ALL the content in the third grade math program so that students will have skills needed for state testing.
