Week of May 30: Lesson Plans

HIGHLIGHTS


“BE INDEPENDENT. TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS. USE COMMON SENSE.”

TEDDY BEAR DAY: THURSDAY, JUNE 2  After much discussion it has been decided that Teddy Bear Day will be on Thursday, June 2.  Students will be allowed to bring 1 bear for the entire day that will travel with them from Class to Class. NO PARENTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND DUE TO SPIKES IN COVID AND FOR ALL AROUND SECURITY.  We are hoping that the students will be able to eat their lunch in the Patio but this has not been cleared yet.  We are just happy that the students will be able to experience part of this special day for third graders.  GO BEARS!

PERIMETER AND AREA TEST AND RETEST WILL BE ON TUESDAY, MAY 31. All students that were absent for this test should be ready to take this test the day they return to school. All students that are taking a retest have been told, and I have gone over every test with all the individual students that got answers incorrect.

RECONCILIATION  

Third grade students will do reconciliation on Monday.  Please review with them the Prayer of Sorrow, which is said after the sacrament is given.  Thank you.

RELIGION TEST TUESDAY ON SESSION 11.

MATH TEXTBOOKS   

  • VOLUME 1 was sent home last week.  We are finished with it. 
  • VOLUME 2 was passed out last week.

MATH TIMINGS 

We are starting math timings on Mondays and Thursdays each week.  You student already has a copy of the first timing packet.  Students will start with the first timing and must stay on that timing until they complete it and get 100%.  That means that some students will stay on the first packet and other students will finish a packet and go on to the next packet of timings.  Students will not be graded for these timings.  Some will have a little anxiety over these, some will love them.  Students need to study the timings at home to be successful on them at school.  It is mostly about work and effort in doing these.

WET ERASE MARKERS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL TIMINGS.  THEY ARE SOLD IN A PACKET OF COLORS FOUND AT STAPLES OR OTHER STORES.  PLEASE HAVE THEM FOR CLASS ON MONDAY.  MAYBE STUDENTS CAN SHARE A PACK. THANK YOU.

DETENTION

The teachers take detention seriously and we don’t give it out unless the student warrants it.  If your child receives detention they have earned it.  Detention is usually a series of 3 days after school from 3:00-3:30.  Right now we are only giving out one-day detentions.  This may change in the future.
