3rd Grade 







Week of January 14-18

The third graders have been practicing their Martin Luther King choral reading and they are doing a great job! I hope you can be here next Friday, January 25, at 2:30 to see them perform it.  


Below are some of the skills the students worked on this week: 

RELIGION - We read about John the Baptist and the baptism of Jesus. We also read about Jesus' temptation in the desert and the beginning of His public ministry.   

MATH - The third graders worked with place value to the hundred thousand's place, compared and ordered numbers, and started multiplying two and three-digit numbers by a one digit number.

LANGUAGE ARTS - The students had a creative writing assignment, did an activity with homophones, used contractions, and quotation marks. 

SOCIAL STUDIES - We read about the United States during the time of the thirteen colonies and about the colonists desire to be independent from Britain. We also read about Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin and their roles in the beginning of our country.

SCIENCE - The students started working on their animal posters. They wrote characteristics of their animal groups (reptiles, birds, etc.) and began drawing some animals.
