Welcome to 3rd-4th Grade
Classroom News and Notes
Week of Jan. 17 – Jan. 21
MAP testing: It begins this week. It is very helpful to have your student get a good night's rest, as well as a solid, healthy breakfast for good concentration.
Singing: K-4 will be singing in church on Feb. 6th. We'd love to have your child join us in beautifying the worship service.
Field Trip: Our end of the year field trip is to the Edgerton Science Museum on May 12th. It seems like a long way off; but it will be here in no time. :)
Christ Light: This week our lessons are The 12 spies & Korah's rebellion. Ask us what a scapegoat is. Memory for Tuesday is Romans 6:23; Friday's memory is hymn #208 stanza 1 (the first 4 lines).
Spelling: Unit 19. Pages 128-129 are due on Wednesday, while pages 130-131 are due on Friday.
Language: We plan to dig into comparing and contrasting.
Science: We have two experiments going on right now--one is growing mold on bread; the other is seeing how roots absorb water/nutrients. Ask us what is surprising in our observations.
Reading (3/4): We have started reading the play, The Crowded House. This week one of our assignments will be to answer some questions. **Sometime in February we hope to perform the play for you. :)
AR: Keep up good reading habits to become a stronger reader.
BOOK REPORTS: Students have chosen their next book. For this book report, students will be making a poster that goes along with the story theme. The due date is Feb. 7th.
Reading (5/6): We have just started our poetry unit. Ask us what the difference between rhyme and alliteration is. Soon we will be writing some good poems of our own.
Creative Writing (7/8): This week we plan to look at the writing process from a different viewpoint-- we will be grading some essays. **There will be some guidelines and a form to fill out.
"...eagerly desire the greater gifts."
