RELIGION    We will continue with Chapter 12 this week.  We will talk about how we pray for all people.  We will talk about Pentecost and we will read about St. Dominic de Guzman, a man of prayer. We will also talk about one of the greatest devotions to Mary, the Rosary.  We will finish up our chapter this week.  We may have a test on Thursday over chapter 12.  We will be reading the Stations of the Cross on Friday.  

 This week we will also continue with our Lenten Activities.  

**Don’t forget students should wear Mass Uniform on mass days!  Now that we are past Spring Break, the Mass Uniform is back to being the plaid skirt or jumper
(NO PANTS) with a white shirt for the girls.  Boys is still blue pants and white shirt.   Girls may still wear tights under their skirts or jumper, but leggings will need to be taken off, as they are not part of the school uniform. 

 SPELLING – We are back to using our Reading books.  Our words this week are compound words. We will have our tests on Wednesday and Friday this week. You can find the link to the next three weeks of words below.

READING  Our story this week is called “Boom Town.”  We will be working on sequencing, vocabulary, using a calendar, and compound words.  Our test will be on Friday.  

GRAMMAR /VOCAB. – In Grammar this week we will be working on singular pronouns.  In our Vocabulary book we will be doing a review lesson over the words we had in Lessons 11-14.

MATH   We will start a new chapter this week.  We will be working on Geometric figures.  We will be talking about 2-D and 3-D figures, congruent shapes, lines of symmetry, and geometric patterns. 

 Please keep working on addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts at home!  The more practice the better!  🙂

SCIENCE –  We will focus on Social Studies for the next week.   

SOCIAL STUDIES   So, we didn’t finish up our chapter before Spring Break like I had hoped!  We will review a little and then continue on our way!  We need to finish up the rights and responsibilities of U.S. Citizens, models of American Citizenship, and American Symbols.  Test will be later in the week.

Fridays in Lent – .  As a part of our Lenten Journey, the 3rd grade class will participate in the Stations of the Cross every Friday.  The times may vary, but I will try to let you know ahead of time when we will be doing this so if you would like to join us you are more than welcome.  This Friday, we will probably begin around 1:30 in the Church.

TARDIES –  It is very important for the kids to be at school on time each day.  When the kids come in late, they miss an important time in the classroom.  My mornings are set up for some “new day socializing”. This is chance for the kids to chat and get caught up from the day before.  It is also a time of early morning directions on how the day is going to go, what to do for morning work, and our daily prayer circle. If they are late on Fridays, they are missing the same thing in Art class, since we have Art first thing at 8am. When they are late, they seem to be more frazzled because they are trying to get caught up and figure out what is going on in the classroom.  I know some mornings can be rough, but please try to have the students to school by 8am when the tardy bell rings.

**PE NOTE – Hopefully we are on the upswing of warmer weather, so students do not need to have long pants to wear after PE for dismissal!  YAY for warmer weather!
