3rd Grade


Prayer of Saint Patrick
Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, and in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.

During the weeks of Lent we will be doing activities that will help the students understand that Lent is a time to give, to fast, and to pray.  Lent is a time to prepare for the celebration of Easter.

English Language Arts
We will be working on the fifth unit.   Comprehension skills will include point of view, compare and contrast, sequence of events, formal and informal language, author’s purpose, main ideas, details, and text and graphic features.  The writing process is also used on a regular basis using the 5 “W’s”. Students will also learn to use adjectives and adverbs in their writing.

In math students will develop an understanding of fractions.  Students will learn to express and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Students will be using fraction bars to help understand this concept. Please continue to practice basic multiplication and division facts your child.

Our science classes will focus on how light and matter interact.  Students will analyze how light is reflected, refracted, and absorbed. Students will also be able to describe how light forms shadows.

Social Studies
Students will identify the five regions of the United States and describe the variations in the physical environment including climate, landforms, and natural resources

Many students are not coming to school in complete uniform.  Students are still without necessary school supplies.  Please remember to call Mrs. Psomas when your child is absent and send in an absent note when your child returns to school.

Thank you for your support and cooperation.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day and Saint Joseph’s Day!
