Curriculum Update

This week we will be reviewing for a test on Moses’ early life, the ten plagues, and the crossing of the Red Sea. A review sheet was sent home last week Friday to help give you a jump start. We will review in class both Monday and Tuesday for this test.

·      Bible Test on Wednesday!
·      Bible Memory- Psalm 121 is due Friday. Kids can start to say it me this week anytime.

Telling time elapsed time on a number line along with graphing using pictographs, bar graphs, and line plots will be on the agenda this week.
·      Look for a one-sided homework sheet to come home on Monday.

Social Studies

Word Work
We continue to expand our vocabularies during read aloud time with A Cricket in Times SquareChester Cricket is a talented guy. We learned that his talent may help the New York family he has been staying with.


·      We will be identifying base words and suffixes.
·      We will be sorting –tch and –ch words.
·      Dear Parent Letter comes home Thursday (Optional)

Our teaching points will focus on the different types of structures within non-fiction text including description, sequence, and compare/contrast. We will start the week with determining the main ideas and key details in the text.  Since it is Martin Luther King Jr. Day tomorrow, we will read selections of informational text about his life, contributions, and his impact on our society today.  

Sequence example


We have created our introductions, sequence chapter, and now our teaching points will focus on how to write the description chapter to our non-fiction books. I took folders home this weekend and wrote comments to help move these 3rd graders along in the process of writing. A few examples are below so you can see how they are turning out.
