Third Grade News                   11/1/2021

In Class:

  • Religion: This week the students will learn about All Saints Day and ways we can show love and caring for others.
  • ELA:  Third grade authors wrote Haunted House for Sale stories. We will be getting back to revising and editing their personal narratives.  In grammar the students will be learning about compound sentences. The selling pattern this week is words with silent letters. Each day the students rotate through a reading group, independent work time, and a learning center. The groups are reading different books to build their comprehension skills. Our centers cover topics in math and ELA. 
  • Math: Our mathematicians have been working on their 2, 5, 9, and 10 times tables. We will have a test on Tuesday. Later in the week we will review and work on adding with and without regrouping. Please continue to work with your child at home on memorizing their multiplication facts. 
  • Science: Third grade scientists are learning about ‘selection’ and how there have come to be different varieties of common animals.
  • Social Studies: Third grade will continue learning about Mexico. This week we will study the plants, animals and climate.

Recess: The students go outside for recess every day that it is not raining. Please make sure your child comes to school with a jacket. Girls can bring a pair of leggings or sweatpants to put on under their jumpers on the days they wear their jumper.

Homework: Students should be doing homework assignments in PENCIL. 

Class Website: In addition to homework, spelling words, and a copy of the weekly newsletter, the class website also displays photos of things happening in school. I added a couple pictures from Halloween.
