Welcome to 3rd-4th Grade
Classroom News and Notes
Week of March 9-13
The carnival was a lot of fun! Thank you to all those who made it possible!
Christ Light: This week our lessons are Samson's strength & Samson's capture and death. Ask us how many soldiers Gideon had for the battle against the MIdianites. Ask us how long Gideon served as a judge for Israel. Memory for Tuesday is the 6th commandment; Friday's memory is 1 Peter 5:8.
Spelling: Unit 23. Pages 150-151 are due on Wednesday, while pages 152-153 are due on Friday.
Language: Action and linking verbs are what our new unit is on. Ask us the five main linking verbs.
Math: Test 15 today. This week 3rd grade will learn about square roots and adding money amounts. **It is important to line up the decimals. 4th grade will be learning about polygons and writing the remainder in a division problem as a fraction.
Science: Animal reports on the trifold board are due next week. How are we coming along?
Reading (3/4): We don't have much left of our poetry unit. We will be reading some concrete poems, and then writing some of our own for Friday.
BOOK REPORTS: Grades 3-6 should be choosing a historical fiction book for their next book report; it is a commercial so there won't be a paper to hand in.
Reading (5/6): We will be studying African American poetry. Shakespeare comes after that. For Wednesday we have some questions to answer; for Friday we have an excuse poem to write.
Creative Writing (7/8): Our new assignment is to write a top 10 list (using phrases) of what occupations the student is interested in.
