Third Grade — Mrs. Clemens

For the Week of March 24

Happy Spring!

This past week our class had a blast learning about the Design Process and how it applies to our everyday life.  We learned about how cultures from immigrants can influence our own culture and we drew African inspired paintings, listened to artists like Louis Armstrong, and learned that Lacrosse was created by the Native Americans.  We continue to work on finishing our Business Letter.  The students need to keep practicing their multiplication flashcards so that we can keep passing the quizzes to reach our goal of Multiplication Ninjas.  

In Reading, we wrapped up our read aloud, Because of Winn-Dixie, with a party that included the movie.  We will finish that on Monday and have a compare/contrast.  The students should have reading homework everynight BESIDES the 30 minutes of reading.  This is help them dig deeper and examine the reading more closely.  

 Book It!- Keep reading....one more week to go!
