February News

February will be another busy month for third grade!  There is so much to do and have fun too! Catholic Schools Week is the first week and many exciting activities are planned!

Math-We continue to review our multiplication and division facts.  We are concentrating on 6, 7, 8, and 9, and will soon begin to multiply three numbers.  Eno board games and timed tests help to reinforce the facts, but continuous practice at home is necessary.

Language Arts-Verbs, verbs, and more verbs!  We are learning about action, helping, irregular, and tenses.  Reading sentences and picking out the verbs will be the focus this month.  Our goal is to have more creative writing!  Context clues, singular and plural pronouns will be stressed as well.  Our next book report is due February 16th.  Happy reading!

Religion-The Church continues to teach the true message of Jesus is the focus.  We will understand what it means to profess our faith through The Apostles Creed and the different kinds of prayer and learn the parts of the mass.   Lent begins this month starting with the Ash Wednesday Mass on the 10th (3G and 3D will be preparing) and Stations of the Cross on Friday afternoons.

Social Studies-In our next chapter, we will be looking at places where communities started.  We will discuss climates and landforms, natural resources and conserving energy.

 

We will be having a small Valentine's Day celebration on the 12th.

 

Feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns.

3rd Grade February Book Report

3rd Grade February Book Report

Due Tuesday, February 16, 2016 (Before Vacation)

Celebrating Black History Month

February is Black History Month and a remembrance to the important people and events in African American History. We have included a list of famous African Americans for you to choose from. You may be reading about a Civil Rights Leader, Educator, Government Official, Inventor, Athlete, Musician, or Astronaut.

This book report is called “Dear Diary” and you will be writing as if you are the character. You are to design a diary or journal.  After reading your book, write at least 7 entries that might have been written by the character. Remember, in a diary or journal you are writing with feeling and emotion of the events that are taking place – good or bad. Please provide plenty of details about these events. You certainly may include pictures throughout your diary or journal. Be creative with this and really put yourself in the character’s shoes – become this person as you are writing and think about what feelings and thoughts you would have if this was you.

Please make sure you include the title and author of your book(s). Have fun with this and maybe you will learn a little about yourself along the way!
