Hopefully everyone had a fun and safe spring break!  During the week of March 18-23 the third graders will be beefing up their phonics skills by working with vowel variants....... words that make you say /oo/. The letters stand for the vowel sound are ew, ui, oo, ue.  Our focus skill for this week is "Sequence".  Students will learn in which events happen using time-order words.  Our vocabulary words: conserved, strict, harsh, bleak, absence, shelters, permanently, drifts, scarce, and dim.  In grammar we are focusing our attention to verbs and specifically the verb be .  It tells who, what, or where the subject of a sentence is.  

In math we are still working on fractions The will be a TEST on Tuesday March, 19th.  The next unit will be more on multiplication and division.  So parents keep an eye out for the "Parent Letter".  3rd Graders are wrapping up their Social Studies unit as well the week.  We have been studying human and physical features.  The test is scheduled for Thursday, March, 21st.
