Third Grade News and Up Coming Events


Religion:  As a class we will talk about the ways Jesus’ followers shared the good news of Jesus with others.  The students will work with a partner to create a chain to share the good work of Jesus.  These chains will be in the hallway to let the other members of our school know about Jesus’ good deeds.

Reading: We will continue reading the short story “Athbascans” and answer questions centered around the story.

Spelling:  Our spelling words this week contain commonly misspelled words.  Our spelling test will be on Thursday February 10th.  Spelling homework will be on Tuesday and nights.

Phonics:  The students will practice making contractions out of two smaller words.  They will also review adding -s and -es to words to make them plural.

Math  During Math class this week we will be working with: Algebra to find the unknown (Missing factor) numbers in multiplication problems, The Distributive Property of Multiplication to solve problems and finally the multiples of 10.

Science: This week we will continue to learn more about the design process and improvements in technology.
