Upcoming Third Grade Field Trips

We are very excited about our TWO field trips coming up after the Thanksgiving break! All 3rd grade students will be attending a performance of The Nutcracker on Friday, December 4th. Then on Tuesday, December 8th we will all go to the Charleston Museum in downtown Charleston to learn more about South Carolina history.

Please try to have your student's permission slips and money returned by this Friday.

Due to limited seating we will not need additional chaperones for The Nutcracker, but we can have several adults accompany us to the Charleston Museum if you would like to learn more about our state's history too! Please make a note on your child's permission slip if you are interested in coming.

The students will need to bring a lunch for each field trip. We will eat when we return to school after The Nutcracker and we will take our lunches with us to the Charleston Museum.

happy belated birthday to lily kennedy and ellie sparwasser!!!


We are cruising through third grade! I can't believe the first quarter is already over!

SC History - We began talking about the first European explorers to SC. This will be continued after Thanksgiving break.

Spelling - I feel that the students' spelling work has been successful so far this year. Be sure your student is completing their spelling homework each week and bringing it to school on Fridays.

Science - The students are working in groups, preparing a presentation on a habitat. They are creating a poster and talking points to share research about their habitat, including adaptations for the plants and animals living there. They will present their habitat research later this week.

Grammar - We continue to work on learning about pronouns.

Math - We are finishing up this short chapter on division this week and the students will take a quiz on Friday to assess their understanding, but I am not giving them a major test in the interest of time. If your child is struggling with any of their homework this week, please let me know so I can be sure to review the concept or strategy with them.

Our multiplication test this week will cover the 0s-6s facts. PLEASE help your student review all of their facts each night, to speed up the older ones and learn the new ones!
