Welcome back from Rodeo Break! I hope everyone had time to relax and refresh themselves. I’m looking forward to hearing about trips, games, family time, and more!
This week, we will be starting unit 5 in our language arts work. The theme of this unit is Mysteries of Mattter and students will be exploring what makes matter change through reading plays, science texts, and interviews. We will work on writing short plays as well as writing reviews of what we’ve read.
In math, we will continue to investigate area and perimeter with an exploration of the question how big is my foot? Students will learn how to describe the dimensions, perimeter, and approximate area of their foot using different measuring tools. Later in the week, we will be studying attributes of triangles and quadrilaterals.
In social studies, we will review what we learned about Tucson’s history and will begin a group project. Students will work in small groups to determine ten important events in Tucson’s history and construct an illustrated timeline and video telling the history of our community.
It’s third grade’s turn to provide eggs for the church’s Casa Maria program. Every month, St. Michael’s prepares 500 lunches for people in need. Each month, a different grade is asked to help provide eggs for egg salad sandwiches. February 28th is third grade’s turn to provide eggs. Each student may bring one dozen hard boiled, peeled eggs. The eggs may be brought to school on Thursday or Friday. In addition to donating eggs, all are welcome to join St. Michael’s parishioners in the sandwich making and brown bag packing Friday evening. Thank you in advance for your support.
Fine arts night is coming on April 3. Ms. Allen has asked us to share the following request:
This year our Fine Arts Night performance is called Big Beautiful Planet.It is a small musical about our beautiful planet and how important it is that we take care of our home.
I am creating a photo montage of all your fabulous children for the performance. I am requesting that you send me one photo of your child (or children) enjoying or helping our beautiful planet earth.Perhaps you have a photo from a camping or hiking trip.Maybe you have a snapshot of your child taking out recycling or gardening.These are just a few ideas.
Our performance is April 3rd and I want to create the montage on March 20th.Please send the photos to my email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 20th.I can not add any more photos after that date so, if you want your child (children) in the montage, I MUST have your photo by March 20th.
