Third Grade

We will start this week by leading Stations of the Cross on Monday.  Third grade is very excited about having this honor!  This week we will also be learning about the lives of Saints Scholastica and Benedict.

Our story this week is called “Boy, Were We Wrong About Dinosaurs!”  This non-fiction story tells how scientists learned about dinosaurs by studying fossils.  Our spelling words this week come from this story.  We will continue to learn about adverbs as our grammar focus.

In social studies, we will be comparing the Hupa, Chumash, Kawaiisu an Miwok tribes.  This will blend nicely with our field trip next week to learn more about how the Chumash people lived.

In math we will be finishing up our unit on fractions.  Our next test will be Thursday.  Our next unit of study will be plane shapes.

Our current AR period will end next Friday, March 23 (field trip day).  We will start our final AR period on March 26.  Meeting AR goals helps prepare your child for the challenges of the next grade.  Please help your child start off right in fourth grade by helping the to meet their AR goal.
