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.

 

 

There are some important dates to remember this month.

February News

February will be another busy month for third grade!  There is so much to do and have fun too! Catholic Schools Week was a great way to start off this month!

 

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.

 

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.

 

Social Studies-In this 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 14th.

Feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns.

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!
