3rd Grade 





                       HAPPY THANKSGIVING!                                                                                                                                                                                                                  



Week of November 12 - 16

The third graders' Thanksgiving cards were brought to the VA Hospital to brighten the lives of the veterans. In each card the students thanked the veterans for serving our country. We are keeping the vets in our prayers every day.      


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

LANGUAGE ARTS - We continued 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.
