Dolphin                     3rd Grade Weekly WaveSandDollar

RELIGION  We started Chapter 2 in Religion last week.  This chapter has us learning about the Sacraments of Initiation.  We will talk about Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation.    We will also talk about the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and how we can be active members of the church.

**Don’t forget students should wear Mass Uniform on mass days!  This is blue pants and white shirts for the boys.  Plaid skirt or jumper with a white shirt for the girls!  

 SPELLING This week we will focus on LONG O words.  We will work on the different ways to spell the LONG O sound.  We will test on Thursday and Friday. Don’t forget the spelling list can be found at the link below!  NOTICE – This is a NEW LIST!!

week 4-6

READING This week we will read “Penguin Chick.” We will work on vocabulary, main idea and supporting details, and homographs.

GRAMMAR In Grammar we will be working on predicates in a sentence.   We are working on Lesson 2 in our Vocabuary books.  The words in Lesson 2 are words that are opposites.

MATH So, we didn’t get as far as I had hoped last week.  We will review today and Wednesday and have a test Thursday over chapter 1.  Please see tomorrow’s  daily email for TEST HINTS!  Our next chapter will have us talking about the addition properties, estimating sums, adding two and three digit numbers, and adding money. 

SCIENCE – We took our test last week over chapter 1, however the test results were not as good as I had hoped for.  I think we are going to review one more time and retake the test.  We had lots of trouble with the vocabulary.  Please watch for a study guide to come home today.  Use this to help review with your child. 

SOCIAL STUDIES   Our first chapter talks about Communities.  We will look at why people live in a community, how they work and what they do, how people get along in a community, and how different people can live in a community.  

TEACHER NOTES –  

**There is a PRIDE meeting tonight at 6:30pm!  Be sure to join us and earn a NUT certificate for you child this week!

**Tomorrow is our first STEEP test.  This is a benchmark that we use to see how the students are doing in class.  We will STEEP test three times throughout the year. There is nothing your child needs to do to prepare, but please have your child here on time in the morning so we are all ready to go!

**Remember…We have MASS on Thursdays.  Please make sure your child is wearing their Mass Uniform!  We also have PE on Thursdays and some Fridays this year!  Please be sure your child has clothes to change into for these two days as well!
