WELCOME TO 3rd GRADE WITH MRS. DUBOVICI
Week of April 16, 2018
Reading Rewards Week
We have designated the third week in April as Reading Rewards Week (April 16th through April 20). Each day will be a dress down day with a theme. If you don’t have the clothing that goes with the theme then you can always dress in blue and/or green which are our school colors. The themes are as follows:
Monday, April 16th Wear the same color from head to toe Day
Tuesday, April 17th Sports Day
Wednesday, April 18th Wacky Wednesday
Thursday, April 19th Favorite Book Character
Friday, April 20th Decades Day (dress like the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s)
Chapter 22: God Blesses Contrite Hearts
Faith Focus: God forgives us when we are sorry for our sins.
The students will learn to name ways to deepen their awareness of God’s forgiving love through the story of Jesus forgiving Peter. They will also learn ways to say “I’m sorry” to those they have hurt.
We are going to continue working on Charlotte’s Web. We have four chapters left (19-22). We are going to work extra hard to finish reading the book before the April break. There won’t be a spelling test for this week. Instead, we are going to concentrate on Charlotte’s Web vocabulary, comprehension, questions, and writing.
We are going to finish up chapter 14, Geometry and Perimeter. We will review chapter 14 and have a practice test. Also, we are going to start reviewing and practicing NYS 3rd grade Math Assessments. Chapter 14 Math test will be on Friday, April 20th.
Vocabulary words: angle, attribute, end point, hexagon, octagon, pentagon, parallelogram, parallel, quadrilateral, area, vertex, perimeter,
Chapter 11: Forces and Motion
In this chapter the students will learn to describe and relate position and motion, identify forces as push and pull, define energy and work, and identify and describe simple machines.
