        3rd Grade  Weekly Wave

RELIGION  We will continue with Chapter 6 this week.  We are talking about celebrating the Sacrament of Penance and the Sacrament of Healing.  We will also look at the Anointing of the Sick.  I am planning on a test on Friday over Chapters 5 & 6.  Keep watching the homework journals and daily emails for updates.

**3rd Grade will be planning Mass this week! We will do our Mass to honor our Veterans for Veteran’s Day!  If your child has a speaking part, please help them practice a few times at home before Thursday.

**The girls are now allowed to wear pants as part of their Mass Uniform! We will carry this through the winter months until Spring Break!  

 SPELLING –  This week, our words have the /ar/ sound (stairs, mare, bear).  Tests will be Wednesday and Friday this week.  

Week 10-12

READING  Our story this week is “One Riddle, One Answer.”  We will be working on vocabulary, plot, setting, and metaphors.  Our test will be Friday.

GRAMMAR /VOCAB.In Grammar this week we will be working on present-tense verbs and reviewing action verbs. In our Vocabulary books we will be talking about Dictionary Skills and what kind of information we can find when using a dictionary. We will also be writing another story on our Chromebooks!  

MATH We are continuing to work through our multiplication unit in math.  This week, we will work on multiplying by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 10.  

Keep working on those Multiplication Sundae slips!  I believe at last count, we have had 9 students earn their bowls, and one student has earned BOTH scoops of ice cream!

SCIENCE –  Our next chapter will have us talking about the “relationships among living things.”  We will look at ecosystems, food chains and food webs, and the different roles of plants and animals.
