Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds.They will mentally add 10 or 100 to a given number 100-900, and mentally subtract 10 or 100 from a given number 100-900. Students will explain why addition and subtraction strategies work, using place value and the properties of operations.

Writing: Students will understand how to write a narrative paper. They will work on the steps in the writing process from drafting, revising, editing to publishing.

Science: Students will learn about the structure and properties of matter. They will learn that different kinds of matter exist and many of them can be either solid or liquid, depending on temperature.
