3rd Grade Weekly Wave
RELIGION – We will finish up chapter 2 this week. We will NOT have a test, due to many other tests this week along with a shorter week! We will, however, be working on a display for the hallway. If you have pictures from your child’s baptism or 1st Communion, please send those in by Wednesday. If your child has not received these sacraments or you do not have photos available, that is fine! They will still do the project, and no points will be deducted!
**Don’t forget students should wear Mass Uniform on mass days! Mass Uniforms are the plaid skirt or jumper
(NO PANTS) with a white shirt for the girls. The boys’ uniforms are blue pants and white shirt.
ONLY MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRLS are allowed to wear pants for Mass all year! The lower grade will be allowed during the winter months.
SPELLING – This week our words will have Long /o/ sounds! Due to our short week, this week our tests will be on Thursday and Friday. Please see the link below for this week’s words as well as the next 3 weeks.
READING – This week we will be reading a story called “Penguin Chick.” We will work on main idea and supporting details, vocabulary, comprehension, and homographs. Our test will be on Friday.
GRAMMAR /VOCAB. – We didn’t get to our Vocabulary books last week, so we will hopefully get to them this week! In Grammar, we will work on the predicates of sentences (verbs and everything after)! We will continue to work on writing and naming the four different types of sentences, and finding the subject of sentences.
MATH – We will have our test over Addition, Subtraction, Place Value, and ways to write numbers (expanded, standard, and word form) on Wednesday.
Our next chapter will have us talking about Multiplication!
Please work on simple math facts at home. Right now our focus will be on addition and subtraction. We will soon be talking about multiplication and division as well!
SCIENCE – I am planning on our first science test this Thursday! I will send home TEST HINTS and we will have studied and reviewed several times in class! Be sure to go over the test hints and the chapter with your child. They are always welcome to bring their books home if you would like to get a jump start on the studying! 🙂 You might write them (and me) a note in their homework journals so we remember!
SOCIAL STUDIES – We will start on Chapter 1 towards the end of the week. In the first chapter, we will talk about how our Community. We will look at how people live in a community, the many jobs in a community, and how people get along in a community. We will also look at reading graphs, and solving problems.
DATES TO KEEP IN MIND –
Friday and Saturday – Sept. 8 & 9 – St. Rose Festival
**SCHOOL/HOME WORK – We have been in school a little over three weeks now, and for the most part the students are doing a great job of completing and turning in their work. However, I have a few missing assignments from a few students. They usually tell me their parents took it out of their folder and they left it at home :). If you notice in their Assignment Notebooks that they are missing an assignment, please be sure to ask them about it or check with me for clarification.
**JUPITER GRADES – I have entered the first few grades in the Jupiter system. There are not too many, and not all the subjects have grades yet. Please let me know if you ever see a grade that concerns you or doesn’t seem right. I am human, and sometimes make a mistake in entering the numbers. If you send me an email, come and see me, or have your child ask me about it, I will double check my work or let you know what the problem is regarding the grade. Again, just ask if you have a question!
GOLDEN TICKETS REWARD SYSTEM – Please click on the link below to read my letter that explains our Golden Ticket Reward System. Please let me know if you have any questions.
