Third Grade


Week of April 16-20


Religion
We began our week reading the Gospel from Sunday's Mass, Luke 24:35-48, in our Bibles. We learned that the Good News is that Jesus has risen and the promise from God of a Savior for Israel was fulfilled.  We learned about the parts of the Holy Mass and focused on the Offertory and the Consecration. We also learned that we are special and unique and how God looks at our hearts to see who we really are.  We are continuing our prayer promise for our beloved Fr. Dennis and our Seminarian, Peter Lukaszewski by saying a special Our Father and Hail Mary for them every day.  We celebrated an all school Mass on Friday.

Reading/Language Arts
We continued Mystery Month by joining new book clubs (literature circles) and reading Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the U.F.O. 

We also continued reading Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Stolen Diamonds together as a group.


In Cursive, we practice letters Nn, Mm, Vv, and Xx.

Mystery Reports are due on April 30.

Please remember to have your child read at least 20 minutes every day aloud to practice fluency.
