A Note from the Teacher

Dear Families,

     We had fun on Monday with Read Across America!

Yesterday, we had experimented with forces playing kickball and discussing Sir Isaac Newton’s first law of motion. We also tried to determine without cracking it, if an egg was cooked or raw, using our observation skills. There were lots of ideas!

We need more volunteers! Parent volunteers are needed for math help on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:30-9:45! Please sign ups are here!

Blessings,
Paula A. Martin-Zender

Religion:  Third graders discussed forgiveness. We are memorizing again the Act of Contrition to prepare for Reconciliation at the end of the month with Fr. Moore.

Literacy: We are deep into the book The Adventures of Vin Fiz reading and discussing in small groups. For spelling we studied homophones.

Math: Mathematicians are becoming more fluent these division facts: 0-5 and 10. We will finish this chapter next week.

Science: We began a unit on Force and Motion, experimenting with Newton’s Laws of Motion.

Social Studies, Technology & Writing:  We are typing our essays about their parents. They also worked on typing skills.
