ALICE Practice Drill Lessons
Moraine Township Gift Drive
The third grade classes are sponsoring three children as part of the Moraine Township Santullano Gift Drive. This drive helps local families who cannot afford to buy gifts for their children. We have selected three eight-year old children so students can easily connect and relate to these children in need.
If you are able and interested in contributing money (no amount is too small) to help purchase gifts, please send in any cash donations. Please place any donations in an envelope with the word, Holiday, on it. In order to ensure time for shopping, the deadline is Friday, December 6th.
We are also hoping for a volunteer/volunteers to purchase and wrap the gifts by Monday, December 9th. We would like to share with the students what their contributions helped to purchase by sharing any photos with them. If you are interested in purchasing and/or wrapping the gifts, please let us know. We appreciate your support in this special, festive, service learning project!
English Language Arts
We are looking forward to review place value through the thousands place in preparation for rounding, adding and subtracting 3- and 4-digit numbers for the upcoming week. This week we will incorporate functional text into math by reading a table to determine the distances between six U.S. cities. We will practice rounding the distances to the nearest ten and hundred and take part in calculations using the actual distances. It's amazing how our social studies and math units coincide so perfectly! Integrated learning at its best!
