Terrific Third Grade, May 31st, 2019

Religion:  On Monday our class will be working with their 7th grade buddies making fleece blankets for hospitalized children  through Project Linus: Please send in your $2 for the donation to cover the materials if you have not already done so. Students will attend the last school Mass of the year at 9 am on June 7th. Please join us if you are able to do so.

Reading:  Students will be reading some historical selections including a book about the Titanic. We will focus on sequence, text features, and cause and effect.

Phonics:  Students will be working on alphabetizing.

Grammar: Students will be reviewing the parts of speech, using context clues to determine vocabulary meaning, pronouns, subjects and objects of a sentence, and  verb tenses .

Math: Students will continue to explore area and perimeter while doing fun activities.

Social Studies: In class we will be reading a mini-biography of Henry Ford and how he changed the way cars were made, and how that resulted in a change in the way people lived. We will  also be discussing how to make choices about the use of resources.
