Tentative Homework/Tests/Quizzes/Projects for the Week of February 27th – March 3rd.

Grade 3:

In Chapter 3, the students will learn four meanings of subtraction, subtract 2-3- and 4- digit numbers, including money, with and without regrouping, estimate differences, regroup hundreds and dollars and thousands as hundreds, regroup with zeros, and choose the operation to solve a problem.

This week, in science the students will be learning about Types of Living Things in Chapter 1.  They will identify and compare characteristics of living and nonliving things, describe the parts of cells, observe the rate of seed growth, and describe the life cycle of plans and animals.

This week, in religion, the children will learn how we celebrate God’s forgiveness in the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation.

We have started working a little extra on script handwriting in the classroom. We have been working on lower case letters with an undercurve stroke: i, t, u, w, e, l, b, h, f, k, r, s, j, p,  lower case letters with an overcurve stroke:  n, m, y, x, v, z, and lower case letters with a downcurve stroke:  a, d, g, o, c, and q.  The students are encouraged to practice script at home.  I will send home some optional practice worksheets.  If you would like, you can have your child hand them back in to me to check over.
