January News

Happy New Year 2017!!!

 

It was great to see everyone back from vacation.  I hope everyone enjoyed time with family and friends.

January is full of fun things, and we will be busy!

Math: Division and multiplication are the themes this month.  We will look at how division and multiplication are related.  To reinforce basic skills, we will practice fact families, have timed quizzes, and play math games.  Please remember to visit IXL.com and multiplication.com for more practice at home.

Religion:  We will learn more about The Apostle's Creed and how the church continues to teach the true message of Jesus.

Social Studies:  Both third grades will study location, climate, and natural resources and how those affect people.  We will "travel" to Montana, Alaska, Hawaii, and Texas and compare and contrast different regions.

Language Arts:  Our focus will be on suffixes, action verbs, tenses of verbs, subject-verb agreement, and irregular verbs.  Adjectives are coming soon!  We are trying to make our journal writing more descriptive and interesting.  Our next book report will center around Black History Month and is due mid-February.  Details are coming soon.

Please feel free to come to me with any questions or concerns you may have.

 

December Book Report

December Book Report

Due: Tuesday, December 20, 2016

For your 2nd book report, you will be making a book report diorama based on a chapter book on a chapter book of your choice (100+ pages). You will be creating your favorite scene from the book.

You will need a shoebox (or a box of similar size), paint, crayons, markers, construction paper for the background, and modeling clay or something of your choice for the characters. (You do not need to buy anything special for this, but can use items you already have at home).

Along with your diorama, you need to include a handwritten piece. Explain why this scene is your favorite. Please also tell us the title of your book, author, setting, main characters, and a brief summary of what the book is about. This should be between a half page to a full page. This can be attached to your diorama. Have fun and happy reading!

 

December News

3G has a lot planned for this month!  It is sure to keep us busy as we look forward to Christmas vacation. We have shopping for kids, our Christmas concert, Immaculate Conception Mass, Christmas tree lighting, and a book report due!

In Math, we are beginning multiplication.  The class has been looking forward to this and we will review the basic facts daily in class.  Please continue to do this at home.  Pop quizzes can happen at any time!  Another website that is great practice and a lot of fun is www.multiplication.com.  This site offers a variety of games at different levels.

in Religion, we are learning about Catholic Social Teaching, Four Marks of the Church, and ways we can help others during this holiday season as we prepare for Christmas.  Our hallway bulletin board shows the class work in celebration of Advent.

In Language Arts, we are practicing our oral reading and comprehension, vocabulary, contractions, homophones, writing with proper grammar, and drawing conclusions. Spelling City is another great resource to review those weekly spelling words.

In Social Studies, we will be continuing to look at holiday celebrations around the world and how they are celebrated across different cultures. It's interesting to compare and contrast different celebrations with our own.

Both 3rd grades will be attending the showing of Elf Jr. on December 15th.  This is sure to get us in the Christmas spirit!

3G wishes you and your family a peaceful and very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
