The big event is this week! Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, the 20th from 6:00-7:00. That evening we will be holding Math and Phonics night. We will be here to show you to how to help your child at home with homework and new concepts in the areas of language arts and math!

Language Arts:
Students should continue to memorize “Eletelephony” as the recitation is on Wednesday the 27th. We will read chapters 28-31 of Pinocchio. In grammar and writing we will begin reviewing the writing process as we aim to perfect the paragraph and move into multi-paragraph essays by quarter 2.

There will be a Unit 2 test over addition and subtraction (involving word problems) on Tuesday the 19th. Following the exam, we will begin Unit 3 covering multiplication and division. The unit will begin with a review from 2nd grade.

Students will begin the week with a quiz covering Fish, Amphibians and Reptiles. We are beginning the tale end of our Mr. Fab packet and ending with mammals! The students will watch parts of a documentary on ostriches! Scholars will also work on creating a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting 3 different types of mammals.


This week in history we will continue to learn about Canada! We will learn about wars, different provinces, Canada’s independence, and more about their culture! The students should continue working on their Canada project that will be due September 25th.
