                       HAPPY THANKSGIVING!                                                                                                                                                                                                                  



Week of November 19 - 20

During this very short week before Thanksgiving break the students will take a math test, work with nouns and suffixes, and continue to read about the famous people they have chosen to write about.

Happy Thanksgiving! May God bless you and your families! 


Below are some of the areas and skills we worked on last week:

LANGUAGE ARTS - We finished reading Charlotte's Web this week. The students also worked with verbs, long and short vowel words, and the different spellings of plural nouns.

RELIGION - We read about Moses leading the Israelites out off Egypt and how God fed them manna in the desert. We compared that to how God feeds us in Holy Communion. The students also listed or drew pictures of people and things for which they are thankful.  

MATH - The third graders found patterns on multiplication tables, used input/output tables, used information from a pictograph to answer questions, and took a quiz.

SCIENCE - The students used magnet wands, trying to temporarily magnetize a paper clip so it would pick up other paper clips, creating a chain. They also completed a worksheet about magnets.          

SOCIAL STUDIES - The third graders each chose a famous person from history, began reading about the person, and taking notes. They will use their notes to write a report about their person.
