March 10

Religion:   Our Lenten season continues next week. We will be having prayer services throughout the season. The next one will be on Monday, March 20 at 2:50. The third graders will continue to focus on the Stations of the Cross during the next few weeks.
Writing: We will be presenting our author reports after spring break. Then we will begin a unit on opinion writing. Our grammar lesson will be on adverbs and adjectives.
Math:   Unit Seven continues next week. The third graders will focus on the extended facts for multiplication and division, estimating costs and exploring ratios. When this unit is complete the students will be expected to start memorizing their basic multiplication and division facts. The expectation is that they have these down by the end of the year.
Spelling: Week 21 - R Controlled Vowels (er, ir, ur)/ Prefixes (mid, pre, re, tele). The spelling section of the website contains all of the weekly lists and the choice words in case your child misplaces their words.  You can also find a copy of LSCW if you need it.
Science/SS: SPACE & MOON UNIT - Students will continue learning about the moon: how it causes tides on earth and the different phases of the moon. Students will also learn about solar and lunar eclipses.
Comprehension: We are working on Reader's Theater. Everyone has been assigned a part to practice. The goal is to make our reading sound like our talking.
