Religion:

We will conclude  the Month of Mary by completing our “Mary quilts”.   We will continue to talk about the Holy Mother and the many stories of her life, including the Assumption,  Visitation, birth of Jesus, Ascension, etc. 

 

Math:

The last few weeks of school, we will be learning about lines of symmetry in geometric shapes and identifying common shapes and angles. We will also discuss probability and unit conversions within a measurement system.

There will be no more IXL due the remainder of the school year.  However, children should still practice their third grade math skills! Their 4th grade summer reading and math requirements will be included in the report card envelope on the last day of school.

 

Language Arts: 

The last two weeks of school we will be focusing on in-class creative writing assignments.   Students will be writing a letter to the incoming 3rd graders, welcoming them to a new classroom. Each new student will receive this letter on the first day of school in the fall. Students will also be interviewing classmates about their school year. Lastly, your children will be answering reflection questions about their year third grade experience.

 

Spelling: Unit 32: Double Consonants

jelly, bottom, pillow, happen, butter, lesson, cherry, sudden, arrow, dollar, hello, rabbit, letter, button, funny, better, stubborn, mirror

 

**There will be no more ABC order or Spelling sentences due the remainder of the year.  However, we will continue to have the weekly spelling tests so, please make sure your children are studying. **

Important Information:

  • Students should be playing IXL for 20 minutes every week. I will check every Monday and count the 20 minutes completed as a homework grade for that week. IXL is an excellent way to practice skills we are working on in the classroom and to review any concepts that may be tricky for your child. It is also a great way to study for tests!

  • Please remember that students may not bring in anything with peanuts or nuts in it for snack. Our room is a peanut free room! 

  • De Chantal follows Montgomery County Public Schools for decisions regarding inclement weather closings, delays and early release. If there is a delayed opening, there is no "Morning Care". If there is an early school closure, there will be no "Extended Day". If school closes at the normal time, but Montgomery County cancels after school activities, Extended Day will be open. 

     

 

Tests/Quizzes Information

  • Religion and Language Arts quizzes are usually once a week. Students are allowed to use their workbooks/textbook for these tests to help further the skill of using text based evidence to support their answers. Tests for Math and Social Studies are at the end of every chapter and are NOT open book. These tests require studying outside of school. I will always give at least a full week of notice before a Math or Social Studies test. 
  • Spelling tests are usually every Friday. The weekly spelling homework (words in ABC order 3x each and 8 sentences hand written with one word per sentence) will always be due on Thursday.
  • If your child receives an AE (Approaching Expectation) or NE (Not Approaching Grade -Level Expectation at this time) on any assessment that comes home in their Signed Paper Folder,  please have them do corrections on a separate piece of paper stapled to the assessment.  PLEASE RETURN ALL ASSESSMENTS ( ME - NE) BACK TO SCHOOL IN THE SIGNED PAPER FOLDER.
