**Important Dates**

Friday, Feb. 23rd – 3rd grade parent lunch at 11:30am

Wednesday, Feb. 28th – Early release at 11:30am

**TEKS: MATH**

3.6A – (R)- Classify and sort two- and three-dimensional figures, including cones, cylinders, spheres, triangular and rectangular prisms, and cubes, based on attributes using formal geometric language

3.6B – (S)- Use attributes to recognize rhombuses, parallelograms, trapezoids, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories

3.6E- (S)- decompose two congruent two‐dimensional figures into parts with equal areas and express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole and recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape

**STUDENT-FRIENDLY LEARNING OBJECTIVES**

I can classify and sort two-dimensional figures based on their attributes.

I can classify and sort three-dimensional figures based on their attributes.

I can use attributes to recognize quadrilaterals and triangles.

I can draw nonexamples of quadrilaterals and triangles.

I can decompose a shape into parts with equal areas.

I can explain that equal parts do not have to be the same shape.

**TEKS: SCIENCE**

3.8B (S) – describe and illustrate the Sun as a star composed of gases that provides light and thermal energy;

3.8C (R) – construct models that demonstrate the relationship of the Sun, Earth, and Moon, including orbits and positions; and

3.8D (S – 5th grade) – identify the planets in Earth’s solar system and their position in relation to the Sun.
