3rd Grade Newsletter

December 11-15, 2017

Our story for the week is Riding the Rails West.  We will be revisiting our Social Studies lesson about railroads. This is not an AR test so we are also reading Kate Shelley and the Midnight Express. The students will be reading about a real-life story of a very brave young girl who saved hundreds of lives on the railroad. During the week the students will be constructing their own bridges with popsicle sticks.

Spelling words:  (diphthongs)  foil, coins, noise, point, enjoy, joyful, down, owl, crowd, plow, round, couch, proud, bounce, loudly, misprint, prepaid, discount, choice, snowplow.

Vocabulary words:  agreeable, appreciate, boomed, descendants, emigration, pioneers, transportation, vehicles.

In Grammar we will be combining sentences with like verbs.

Math will continue with dividing 11 and 12 and then we will explore the distributive property.

Social Studies will have us learning about farm life and how different communities makes goods and how trade links communities.

Religion is chapter 11- God Sent His Son Jesus.

The Christmas Play is Thursday, December 14th. I hope to see some of you there to enjoy the performance. The students will need to be here by 6:00 pm.
