Third Grade Week 9 in Review

Here’s how week 9 went for us…
Bible – Our Bible stories were on “God Made All Things” and “God Made Us Good.”  We read from Genesis 1:20-25, 26-28 and Genesis 2:7-8.  Caleb’s Bible verse for the week was Genesis 1:1.
Science – We finished up our study on plants by doing a few worksheets and an experiment.  We took white carnations and put them into colored water.  We then waited to see if the carnations would transport the colored water up through their veins (and they did of course).  Caleb thought it was really neat.  We also read Time for Kids Science Scoop PLANTS! by Brenda Iasevoli.
Social Studies – This week we reviewed everything we’d studied thus far, and Caleb took a review test.  I’m happy to report he scored 100%.  Once we were done with the test, we went on to our next lesson…”Other Explorers and Colonists.”  We read about Coronado, De Soto, Juan Cabrillo, John Cabot, and Cartier.  We discussed how St. Augustine is the oldest city, and I told Caleb we’d have to make an effort to visit.  Smile
Reading – Caleb read the following stories:
How To Do Homework Without Throwing Up by Trevor Romain
All Aboard Reading Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland by Deborah Hautzig
Vocabulary – Caleb added “amaze, amazing, arctic, Arctic, court, elect, interval, league, limit, milestone, recreation, and tackle” to his list of terms.
Math – We worked on subtraction – three digit numbers.  I’m leaning towards changing math curriculums…I just don’t know if Math U See is working for Caleb.  I don’t know what we’ll use, but I’ll figure it out.  I’m just worried he’s not quite catching on to some of the concepts.
English – Caleb finished up another ACE Pace by taking a test.  We’ll move on to a new ACE Pace next week.
How’s your school year going?  Are your kids adjusting to being back on a schedule yet?  We’re slowly finding our groove.  Smile
