                  3rd Grade  Weekly Wave

RELIGION  We will continue with Chapter 7 and move onto Chapter 8.  In Chapter 8 we will read about the man who would not quit, the Triangle story and St. Patrick, and how we pray to the Holy Spirit.  
When we finish with Chapter 8 we will then take a test over chapters 7 & 8 together!

**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 –  Our words for the next three weeks will come from our novel, “Little House in the Big Woods”, that we will be reading together. Please see the link below for the list of words.  These words are a bit harder than we are used to having, so please be sure to help your child study each week!

Little House Spelling Words

READING  Over the next three weeks we will be reading “Little House in the Big Woods.”  We will be reading some chapters together in class, but there may be nights that students will need to finish up reading what is not completed in class.  I have loaned the books to the students, so you will not have to worry about providing the book!  Just make sure they take care of my books! 🙂

GRAMMAR /VOCAB.Our Grammar and Vocabulary will come from our Little House book for the next three weeks. 

MATH We will be finishing up these last few chapters on Multiplication with a test on Wednesday.  We will then work on Chapter 5, which will continue with Multiplication. 

Don’t forget to keep working on those Multiplication Sundae slips!  We only have 2 more weeks until we celebrate our successes, and I would like for everyone to be able to enjoy some ice cream!  

I have a Sign-Up Genius for our Multiplication Sundae Celebration!  Please see the link below if you can help out!
