Haunting Happenings of Third Grade!

October is a busy month! We have settled into routines and actually have full weeks of school! This is the month of Respect and our students are continuously making us proud. We have many assemblies focused around this theme and how following the golden rule helps us to be respectful and caring citizens. We know you just received the September newsletter, but would like to begin sending our newsletters home earlier in the month as a way for you to be aware of the skills being presented this month as well as upcoming events. It was so nice to meet many of you at Back to School Night. We thank you for your continued support and communication with us as we travel through 3rd grade together.

Science

We have been learning about plant life cycles and the very important process of photosynthesis. Students demonstrated their knowledge through a choice of a play, poem or song. The performances were fantastic! We are moving into animal life cycles and how animals meet their needs.

Social Studies

Students have demonstrated knowledge of the different types of communities we are part of. Our food drive has been a wonderful example to the students about how our actions can make a difference in the lives of others in our community. We are moving into geography and will begin with reviewing oceans, continent, cardinal directions, and hemispheres.
