Welcome to 3rd-4th Grade
Classroom News and Notes
Week of March 1 - 5
Lutheran Schools' Week was so much fun! We are blessed here at St. Paul's! :)
Declamation: Mrs. Hoffman will be helping students practice and prepare for declamation. Please let me know if your child will be participating in this at the Nebraska Lutheran Science and Art Fair on Sat., March 20.
Science projects: How are they coming along?
Book Orders: Please turn them in on Wednesday.
Christ Light: This week our lessons are Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead & Zacchaeus. Memory for Tuesday is John 11:25; Friday's memory is the 8th commandment (we will be filing in the blanks).
Spelling: Unit 25. Pages 162-163 are due on Wednesday, while pages 164-165 are due on Friday. I've noticed that sometimes we're not carefully rereading the directions and looking at the examples.
Language: Possessive nouns is our new unit. Plural possessives get a little tricky and may need some extra practice.
Science: We were surprised how quickly ice turns to steam in a heated pan! Our quiz on the vocabulary will be on Friday.
Math: 3rd will be learning more about area and finding the sum of 3 addends. 4th will be learning how to change an improper fraction into a mixed number. Ask us what an improper fraction is.
Reading (3/4): This week we will start to read some poems about fairies, 100, an elf, juice, and many other wonderful things! Our poetry quiz is on Wednesday.
BOOK REPORTS: Poetry book reports for grades 3-6 are due on Tuesday.
AR: Keep reading steadily.
Reading (5/6): Some of the poets we plan to study this week are Shel Silverstein, Robert Frost, and Paul Laurence Dunbar. Ask us what Peggy Ann was sick with. :)
Creative Writing (7/8): We play to finish our study of denotation and connotation. (Next week will be our quiz.) Our new assignment is to create a game using key events from our years in school. We will have 2 weeks to complete it.
