Third Grade

I hope everyone had an enjoyable, relaxing few days off from school and that you all had a chance to attend the OLPH Parish BBQ.  The kids were so excited last week to see all the rides and booths go up around the parking lot!

Our story this week is Destiny’s Gift, a realistic fiction piece about a girl who brings her community together by encouraging volunteerism.  Our grammar focus is compound sentences and antonyms.

In math, we are finishing up chapter 2 by learning how to estimate sums and differences and also how to check an answer for reasonableness and our next math test should be early next week.  We will be reviewing heavily this week to spark our memory from our days off.

In science we will be building bridges to see who can engineer the strongest bridge.  I have been accumulating materials so we can start STEM centers this year!  I am so excited to bring this to our students.  We may have our first one this week!

This week we will learn about the life of St. Gregory the Great! We will also be learning about the parts of Mass and why we do what we do during Mass.

Thanks to Mrs. Sarkar and Mrs. Rodriguez as well as those of you who pitched in to help with the School Family shirts for our kiddos.  They will come home with your child on Friday and our first School Family event is next Friday, September 27.

Have a great week!
