Happy Friday! We love you, moms!! <3

**Family Life Books -It’s that time. Please return these gray books next week in order for you not to be charged for the replacement books. I have just a few returned as of now.

MAP Testing -We will complete the final two tests next week (Tuesday and Thursday) so you will find no homework once again. Please ensure the children are getting good sleep and healthy breakfasts.

Candy Donations – We will be making small individual piƱatas to accompany our student and projects on Mexico. IF you are able, would you consider donating a bag or two of candy to go in them? I’ll disperse and purchase some but it would help to supplement.

**PLEASE SEE BELOW ABOUT SPANISH REQUEST -Packet is in your child’s Friday Folder.

Missoula Theatre – I’m so proud of the attendance of third graders in the play this year and I can’t wait to go see it! If your child is not in the production, it is a wonderful show to come watch and be there to support his/her classmates. Show times are Saturday at 1 and 3pm.

Book Reports -Students should be deep into their books and we talked about writing notecards and the expectations of this report in class. They should begin searching for clothing to help them “become” their person. ALL presentations must be in first person. Students are expected to practice, practice, practice for this one! Please reach out to me if you need any supplies for costumes. See your child’s Friday Folders for his/her assigned dates and more specific information.

Academics

Literacy -This week we read numerous stories on Mexico, and a nonfiction piece on weather. Reading across content! In writing students, independently wrote a paragraph on a portion of their group project on Mexico. This is the BEST time of year!

Math -We learned about measurement to the quarter inch, volume, and mass this week. We wrapped up with a test on measurement and will be moving into our next unit on geometry.

Science -We explored high wind speed, tornadoes, and the students were able to construct a home and explore ways to make it stronger to withstand the extreme weather.

Spanish -Last week, we had a visit from a traveling Our Lady of Fatima. Students learned that there will be a Marian Shrine built in Washington to create a permanent home for Our Mother. In their Friday folders, students will receive a packet asking for their ideas for the Marian Shrine. Please complete the parent’s ideas on the last page, and help your student complete their ideas on the other pages. Packets are due back by May 23rd. Thank you!

Social Studies -We are learning so much about Mexico! The students and I can’t wait to show you on the evening of Friday, May 31st. Please mark your calendars!

Religion -This week we talked about the month of May, focusing on Mary. We learned about various Marian apparitions through a beautiful book I have. We will look closer on the miraculous metal next week! We also learned about Saint Catherine of Sienna, the annunciation, and had an opportunity to go to Adoration.
