Animals are Amazing
Before Christmas, the third grade presented their animal projects. They included power points, dioramas, posters, and puppet shows. Before presenting, the students had spent several weeks doing research on habitats, offspring, adaptations, and interesting facts. The students did a wonderful job.
We are finishing our study of fractions in Math and are continuing to add a new set of multiplication facts each week. We are striving for speediness, so facts should be studied each night. A set of multiplication flash cards would be helpful.
In Religion, we follow the celebration of Christ's birth to the study of Jesus' ministry. We will be studying the Luminous Mysteries soon and talking about the miracles of Jesus and reading His parables.
Third graders enjoyed our unit in reading on different kinds of weather. It was so interesting to see Kansas mentioned in our books as being part of Tornado Alley. Kansas will again be mentioned in our Social Studies as we study wheat farming. We conclude the week with one of our favorite activities - bread baking. Thanks in advance for all the parent help.
