Happy Friday! It was so nice to see all of you at Curriculum Night. Thank you for taking the time to come hear about third grade. I forgot to mention a very important “Thank You” for the cupcake items that you all so generously donated.

The Harvest Festival begins at 2pm this Saturday and I hope to see you there! Activities and food during the day, along with a Spaghetti Feed at 5/6pm, followed by Bingo hosted by our 8th grade class. Join the fun!

MAP Testing begins next week (Tuesday and Thursday). Homework will be on the lighter side for the next two weeks (one item per night).

Sights from our church tour with Father Moore today. I learn something every time!

SpanishUna nota de Señora Anna- This week in Spanish we began preparing for Hispanic Heritage Month by singing a song called Senorita Mariposa. We learned about the migration of monarch butterflies from Canada to Mexico each fall. We also practiced colors in Spanish with a butterfly color by number.

Art –Butterfly symmetry art. Analogous color: Red-Orange-Yellow / Blue-Green-Purple. Soft chalk pastel technique.

Religion -This week we wrapped up learning all the parts of the Mass and our responses. Brother Francis has a great video on Formed.org if you are interested.

Math -For math this week we talked about rounding to the nearest ten and the nearest hundred. This can be a difficult concept but they are doing great!

Literacy -This week we learned about author’s purpose, making connections (text to text, text to world, text to self), and completing a KWL chart. For writing we are working through the writing process on a persuasive piece.

Science – We continue with problem solving and STEM and did a project today for International Dot Day! They had to construct the tallest tower out of 20 notecards and 20 stickers. Next week we will start our unit on fossils!

*Head to Mod Pizza on September 20th to help our 8th Graders! Mention ACS or give the code MODGIVES20.
