January News

Happy New Year!!

It was great to see everyone back from vacation and the snow days!  I hope everyone enjoyed time with family and friends.

 

January is full of fun things, and we will be busy!

Math: Division and multiplication are the themes this month.  We will look at how division and multiplication are related.  To reinforce basic skills, we will practice fact families, have timed quizzes, and play math games.  Please remember to visit IXL.com and multiplication.com for more practice at home.

Religion:  We will learn more about how the church continues to teach the true message of Jesus.  We will look at who plays important roles in our parish. Catholic Schools Week will be celebrated at the end of the month.

Social Studies:  Both third grades will study location, climate, and natural resources and how those affect people.  We will "travel" to Montana, Alaska, Hawaii, and Texas and compare and contrast different regions.

Language Arts:  Our focus will be on suffixes, action verbs, tenses of verbs, subject-verb agreement, and irregular verbs.  Adjectives are coming soon!  We are trying to make our journal writing more descriptive and interesting.  Our next book report will center around Black History Month and is due mid-February. Details are coming soon.

Please feel free to come to me with any questions or concerns you may have.

 

DECEMBER NEWS

3G has a lot planned for this month!  It is sure to keep us busy as we look forward to Christmas vacation. We have our Christmas concert, Immaculate Conception Mass, Christmas tree lighting, and a book report due!

In Math, we are beginning multiplication.  The class has been looking forward to this and we will review the basic facts daily in class.  Please continue to do this at home.  Pop quizzes can happen at any time!  Another website that is great practice and a lot of fun is www.multiplication.com.  This site offers a variety of games at different levels.

in Religion, we are learning about Catholic Social Teaching, Four Marks of the Church, and ways we can help others during this holiday season as we prepare for Christmas.  Our hallway bulletin board will show the class work in celebration of Advent.

In Language Arts, we are practicing our oral reading and comprehension, vocabulary, contractions, homophones, writing with proper grammar, and drawing conclusions. Spelling City is another great resource to review those weekly spelling words.

In Social Studies, we will be continuing to look at holiday celebrations around the world and how they are celebrated across different cultures. It's interesting to compare and contrast different celebrations with our own.

3G wishes you and your family a peaceful and very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

In Math, we are concentrating on Subtraction.  Estimating differences, regrouping across 3 and 4 digit numbers, regrouping with zeros, and solving more advanced word problems is the focus this month.  We will soon be getting into multiplication.  In addition to IXL, www.multiplication.com is a great site to visit to practice these skills.

In Social Studies, we will be looking at immigrants from different countries around the world and their holiday celebrations.  We will also learn about the history of these holidays.

In Language Arts, the focus will be on compound words, syllables, comparing and contrasting, context clues, singular and plural nouns, and possessive nouns.

In Religion, Chapter 5 takes us into learning about the first members of the church, and how the church continues to grow.  We are reading stories about the mission of the apostles and how they continued the work of Jesus.
