Grade 3

  

  

“Let us not love with words or speech, but with actions, and in truth.” 1 - John 3:18

Here’s what’s happening in Third Grade during the month of February:

The theme of the stories that we read in Reading will make students think about how nature and people are connected. The genre of the stories are nonfiction. We will be focusing on expository text and story structure of stories.  

In Math  our focus will be measurement.  Students will be telling and writing time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals to the nearest minute. We will also focus on measuring and estimating liquid volumes and masses of objects in grams. Please continue to study your facts nightly. 

We will focus on Animals through Time in Science. Students will be conducting weekly labs using Mystery Science. 

In Social Studies we will focus on the country of China. Students will compare and contrast cultural similarities and differences to our own. 

Religion is part of our daily life.  For the month of January we will be focusing on the Sacraments.  We will also visit the Buffalo Center to participate in an art activity with residents.

Third Grade Survival Guide

Work Habits and Academics

Your child will have several assignments during the school day for which he or she is responsible.

Due to uncertain circumstances, if your child for any reason is unable to complete an assignment, this will automatically become homework to be completed at home and returned to school the following day. It is the student's responsibility to return work to the appropriate area WITHOUT any reminders. Work not returned may result in a zero.

Project due dates will be posted and will be written down in agendas. Students are expected to adhere to these due dates as well.

Please talk to your child about the importance of completing assignments.

Reading and ELA

Our reading program incorporates many different components. Students will be participating in Guided Reading Groups, Whole Group Instruction and Independent Reading. It is very important to be consistent with reading every night. The more opportunities your child has to experience text, the stronger reader they will become.

Starting in October students will completing Monthly Book Reports. At that time, guidelines will be distributed and gone over in detail.

Students will write primarily in cursive and will be expected to turn in all work in their best cursive writing.

There will be weekly spelling tests, students will be given words on Monday and the test will be on Friday (dates are subject to change). Please go over spelling words with your child every night.

Math

By third grade, students are expected to know their addition and subtraction tables. We will be working multiplication properties, fractions, and place values.

Homework

Students will be assigned homework. Please check your child's agenda nightly to make sure all assignments are completed. Students will be expected to read a minimum of 20 minutes every night.

Failure to do homework and turn it in the following day will result in not participating in Fun Fridays. Student will also not be invited to the end of the month homework celebration lunch.

Your child is responsible for writing all homework assignments in the agenda, taking the agenda home each day, and having a parent read and sign it nightly. Please feel free to write any messages in the agenda to me as well.
