3rd Grade Weekly Wave
RELIGION – We will review Chapter 9 today and have a test on Wednesday. You can find the link to the Test Hints below! Coming up next…Chapter 10 – We will talk about Gathering for Mass. We will look at the celebration of Liturgy and Eucharist. We will talk about how we serve each other and the order of the Mass as well in Chapter 10.
**Don’t forget that all students should be in Mass uniform.
Girls – plaid jumper/skirt or blue pants with a white shirt/blouse
Boys – blue pants and white shirt
SPELLING -Our words this week have plurals (years, states, foxes, cities) We will test on Thursday and Friday due to the short week. Please see the new list of words in the link below.
READING – We will be reading “My Very Own Room” this week. We will look at vocabulary, making predictions, and using guide words, headings, and captions. Our test will be on Friday.
GRAMMAR /VOCAB. – We will look at new vocab words in Lessons 5 and 6 this week and next with a quiz next week over these two sets of words. In Grammar, we will be working on contractions and apostrophes.
From Mrs. Tieken for Writing – We are in the rubric stage of our “Favorite Subject” writing piece. Today the precious ones learned how to create and share a google doc. Once the paragraph is shared I will use the rubric we learned about last week to grade them. We have some pretty good little writings in our midst.
MATH – We are still working on Chapter 8. In this chapter, we will work on equal parts of a whole, equal shares, unit fractions of a whole, fractions of a whole, and fractions on a number line. Although we are moving on, it is still SUPER important that the students continue to work on knowing their multiplication facts.
SCIENCE – We will focus on Social Studies for a few weeks!
SOCIAL STUDIES – We will start our next chapter this week. We will be discussing Our Nation’s Government. We will look at our National Government, the Rights & Responsibilities of the Citizens, Models of American Citizenship, and Symbols of our Nation. I am hoping for a test at the end of next week, but I have attached the link to the Test Hints below.
REGISTRATION FORMS –
Please be sure to turn in your child’s registration forms for the 2020-2021 school year!
If you get them turned in BEFORE Spring Break, you will not have to pay the Registration Fee!
Be sure to get those in as soon as possible!
** HOMEWORK POLICY-
Student work is to be turned in when it is due. Here is what it looks like if that doesn’t happen…any work not completed or turned in will result in a 0 in the grade book. Your student will have until the following week to turn in the missing or incomplete work. If it is not turned in or completed by this point, your student will choose to turn the temporary zero into a permanent zero. I also do not do extra credit. I expect the work to be completed on time. As always, if you have questions, comments, or concerns, please email me and let me know.

School Sweatshirts –
Please be aware that the uniform policy says “School sweatshirts are the only ones allowed and must be worn with a collared uniform shirt underneath.” I usually have my window opened at least a little all year long, so if your child is one to get cold easily, you may want to make sure they have and bring, a school uniform sweatshirt to wear in class.
Now that we are in the middle of the winter weather, please be sure your child comes to school each day with a coat or heavy jacket. Hats and gloves are also good to have tucked into the pockets! We will go outside unless it is 25 degrees or below! ALL STUDENTS NEED TO BE PREPARED FOR OUTDOOR RECESS!!!
TARDIES/SPIRIT DAYS –
It is very important for the students to be at school every day and on time and ready to go each day! An important part of the day is the first 10-15 minutes when the kids come in the room. They need time to talk, turn in work, use the restroom, etc. before we get our day started! When the kids come in late, they are missing the time to settle in and get prepared for the day. Please try to have your child/ren to school before the tardy bell rings at 8 am!
AS STATED IN THE HANDBOOK – If your child is tardy 3 times during the month, they will not be allowed to dress out of uniform for Spirit Day. If they have 6 or more tardies in the same month, they will not be allowed to dress out of uniform nor will they be allowed to participate in Spirit Day. The timing on this goes from SPIRIT DAY of one month to the day before the SPIRIT DAY of the next month.
