Hello from 3rd grade!
I hope everyone had a great weekend. It was wonderful to see so many of you at church Friday morning. The class did a fantastic job with the mass, I was so proud of them!
Here is what is happening in 3rd grade this week:
This week in reading we continue with chapter 4 of unit 1 in the Wonders reading program. We are still learning about and reading different Biographies. We continue to work on the reading comprehension strategy Ask & Answer Questions and the comprehension skill Cause & Effect . In grammar we are working predicates and also learning about Metaphors. In writing we are continuing with our Saint "app" (on paper) writing projects. The class has been working on their rough draft this week and will be continue the editing phase this week, I'm hopeful we will be able to publish them within the next week.
This week in Math we are learning all about Understanding Division in chapter 5. The students are doing a great job with equal sharing, repeated subtraction and today we learned how multiplication and division relate to each other. We will finish this chapter up Thursday with a test and then Monday will be the start of learning multiplication & division facts in Chapter 6. In science, we are still working on last Lesson in our unit on Forces. In this lesson we will be learning about Magnetic and Electrical forces. In Social Studies we are talking about the different communities, more specifically Urban, Suburban, and Rural communities. We will be working on this topic for a while; we will be incorporating the topic of communities into our STEM project this year. This week in Religion we are learning all about the church, today we discussed how a pope is picked.
