Math: We are wrapping up the first chapter of Go Math! We will have our Chapter 1 test on Wednesday, September 29th. There will be optional study sessions for students who would like the extra practice. Please check the top for the dates and times that are available. We will also be beginning our next chapter, Multiply by 1 digit numbers. This chapter will refresh students’ memories of multiplication and deepen their understanding of multiplication. WE will be looking at comparison problems, multiplying tens, hundreds and thousands. 

Reading: We are moving on to our next story in ReadyGen, Mary Anning: The Girl who Cracked Open the World. This will be our anchor text that we use as we practice our reading skills. We will use the book to look at character traits, describing a person’s life, sequencing events, and explaining scientific concepts. 

Spelling/Grammar/Writing: Our spelling list for the coming week will focus on long i sound patterns. Using their spelling list students will work on sorting their words based on sound, differentiating between the long i spelled i, i-consonant-e, y, igh, ey, and uy. We will also use those words in analogies. In Grammar, we are learning to use and identify types of sentences and parts of speech. In writing, students have practiced using descriptive, sensory adjectives to describe a place in time, creating a “snapshot” with their words. They will use these sensory words to create a descriptive writing piece about their snapshot. 

Science:  In science, our classroom is transformed into a lab as students perform an experiment of their own design. Students are learning about lab safety while working through the process of the scientific method. Students have practiced writing an “if-then” hypothesis, as well as how to evaluate observations to write conclusions. After collecting data by performing an experiment, the class will move on to learning about how scientists use data. 

Social Studies: We will delve into the first region, which is the Northeast. Students will learn about the region’s history, culture, and resources. Students will also begin practicing and memorizing the states and capitals within the region. 

Religion: We have concluded our unit on parts of mass, and are preparing to begin our next chapter about Jesus and his life as an example for us. In this chapter students will continue to learn more about Jesus, who shows us the way God the Father wants us to live. Students will work to understand that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Please be sure to revisit the dress code for 3-8th. 

Thank you so much for your constant support and cooperation!

P.S For a house point have your child tell us the code word: autumn
