Welcome to Third Grade! If you have any questions or concerns, please This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I have taught 3rd grade for over 10 years.  My son Jake is a graduate of St. Christopher School! My hobbies include reading, traveling, going to the beach in the summer, and spending time with my family.

May News

Can you believe it's already May?!  I hope you all had a fantastic April vacation.  We are in the home stretch now, and there is still lots to do and much to review before 4th Grade!  Don't forget our school field trip on Tuesday May 16th!

Religion:  The third grade is preparing the Ascension Mass this month, so please join us if you can.  We will also be celebrating Mary this month with our May Crowning.

Math: We will be moving into double digit multiplication and long division after geometry.  Please remember to keep reviewing the basic facts--www.multiplication.com is a great website with fun games to reinforce the facts.

Social Studies: We will soon be finishing our chapter on explorers and moving into inventions.  The students will love learning about what life was like before all of the newest technology.  It is a fun chapter to discuss how and why things developed over the years.  Who knows what the future holds?

Language Arts: We are learning about suffixes, adverbs, author's purpose, conjunctions, and context clues.

I will be handing out the last Scholastic Book Orders this month.   I want to make sure the orders are in before June and the kiddos get any books they want for summer reading.  Ordering online is ready to go, and of course you can do the paper form as well. There are some great "end of the year" deals throughout.

 

April News

Hopefully we will have some warmer weather soon and start seeing the beautiful colors of Spring!  It's hard to believe we only have a few months left.

Math:  We will be moving on to measurement, time, and temperature.  We will be continuing with multiplication with 2, 3, and 4 digit numbers with and without regrouping.  Please continue to review the basic facts and go to IXL.com and multiplication.com for further practice.

Language Arts:  Adjectives and adverbs are the focus this month.  We continue to review the parts of speech, while we move on.  We have been picking apart sentences and identifying each word and how it's used in the sentence.  Our journal writing is becoming more interesting with the use of these descriptive words. A reminder that the book report is due April 20th.

Social Studies:  We will be continuing this month with our explorers.  There are a lot of explorers from many countries!  We are taking our time with this chapter because there is so much to remember.  Map skills will be enhanced this month.

Religion:  We are learning about Christianity across the world and looking at how other cultures celebrate.  We will also be discussing the Sacraments and their meanings.  What makes them special in our faith?  Why should we receive them?  A reminder that 3G and 3D will be preparing the Ascension Thursday Mass in May!

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

 

March News

I hope you all had a fun and relaxing February vacation.  It was wonderful to see all of the smiling faces return to school ready to learn some more and share their vacation stories.  There are some fun things in store for the month.

In Religion, we will be talking about Lent, Holy Week, and Easter.  This is a very special time of year, and we will be celebrating with Stations of the Cross each Friday.

In Math, the focus this month is on statistics and probability, surveys, graphs mean, median, and mode.  We will do some fun experiments and data collections with this.  Don't forget to check out IXL Math and Multiplication.com for further practice.

In Language Arts, we will learn about prepositions, read folk tales from around the world, and talk about cause and effect.  We are continuing working on our writing skills, and making our journal entries more creative using some of the vocabulary we have learned.

In Social Studies, we will be discussing how communities grew in Glenwood Springs, CO., Seattle, WA., and Indianapolis, IN.
