There is no school this coming Friday or next Monday. Enjoy the long weekend!
Week of May 20th.
Religion- Ch.21-"The Holy Spirit Lives Within Us." There will be a take-home quiz on Wednesday this week.
Math- review of basic fractions; finding the fractional part of a group; equivalent fractions; multi-step word problems. Please continue to practice all multiplication and division facts. If your child knows them, then practice to increase speed of recall; daily practice will ensure that the children have learned them for complete mastery, not just for tests. I cannot stress enough how important this is for fourth grade. Math is significantly more challenging, and all facts should be memorized this year. Please review and practice the addition and subtraction facts as well.
Reading - Charlotte's Web-ch.6-10.
Language - Adverbs
Spelling - Unit 33-words with augh and ough. spellingcity.com test and A-B-C order due Thursday; test on Thursday.
There is a wonderful site that will help you help your child choose books. It is free and easy to use. Go to www.bookadventure.com On the left, click on either "Parents Place" or "Kids Zone." Then, click on "Book Finder." Enter the data, and you will receive a list that not only helps your child choose a book in the correct genre, but also a book appropriate for her/his reading level.
-Special Classes: Monday-Library; Tuesday-Music; Wednesday-Computers; Thursday-P.E.; Friday-Art
Please remember that we are nut/peanut free in third grade. Please read snack labels carefully. All birthday treats must be peanut free, and labeled as such. Remember: this includes foods made in factories that process or use peanuts in some way, as well as foods containing peanuts. The children may have peanut items at lunch only in the cafeteria.
Have a wonderful week!
