Grade 3: This Week at a Glance – May 20 – 24
Wow, it is hard to believe this is the last full week of school. This class has been a true blessing. We have had a very fun year and have accomplished a lot. It is amazing how much the children have grown. This class will always hold a special place in my heart since they are my last class at SJV. I am sad to leave, but Rayanne and I are both extremely excited about joining Mike in Missouri. I am very blessed to have the opportunity to stay home while Mike finishes his doctorate and Rayanne begins her new school. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.
SCIENCE: This week, we will finish our last science unit. Unit E, Chapter 2. We will learn about physical and chemical reactions and about solutions and mixtures. We will complete investigations and classwork assignments throughout the week.
GRAMMAR: The students completed their grammar books. They all did a fantastic job. I was very proud of their work. This week we will wrap up our study of grammar and take the end of the year test. We will review thoroughly prior to the assessment in class. Please check your child’s agenda for the test date.
MATH: We will continue to review material that we learned throughout the year. The students will complete math challenges and play math games.
SOCIAL STUDIES: We completed our economics unit and will spend some time learning about the Cherokee Indians this week.
HEALTH: The students worked in pairs to study and teach lessons about our sense organs and the skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, and circulatory systems. The creativity, artwork, displays, games, and teaching methods were phenomenal. I was very impressed with all of the students.
RELIGION: As the year comes to a close, we will use our religion time for class discussions, bible reading, and learning about the saints.
READING AND SPELLING: We have completed the Open Court series stories and spelling lists. This week, we will enjoy several different genres through silent reading, partner reading, poetry, and bible stories.
There is no Mass this week. Please keep Fr. Gideon, Mrs. Roberts, Mrs. Raybourne and our eighth grade students in your prayers as they travel to Washington DC for the Eighth Grade end of the year trip.
