Week of February 12th

Dear Parents,

This week we will celebrate Great Hearts Day in our classrooms on Wednesday. We will hold a celebration focused on the virtue of Friendship.  There will be some snacks in the classroom.  If you have a student who has allergies to food, please send them an extra snack that day.

This week we will be learning the following:

Literature:

We will continue reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.  Any quizzes previously scheduled for Monday will be on Tuesday, due to the R & R weekend.  Please ensure that your scholar brings their personal copy of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to school until further notice.  Students can use their personal copy of the novel when completing quizzes.  They may not share books with another student during that time. We will also be exploring the idea of perspective and problem and solution in literature.

Grammar:

We will learn about proper nouns and direct objects as they relate to diagramming sentences.

Writing:

We will be learning about where authors get their ideas and relating that to their own writing.

Math:

In Math we will be continuing to learn about Mass and Weight.  This week we will add pounds and ounces.

History:

We will be discovering who the Earliest Americans were and how they lived.

Science:

We are completing the Eye and Vision unit.

In partnership,

3rd Grade Team
