Third Grade Week 14 in Review

Well, week 14 is over, and things are about to change again.  However, rather than post all of that on this post, look for a more detailed explanation to follow soon.  Here’s how week 14 went for us…
Bible – This week our stories focused on “Why We Disobey God’s Law” and “Why Sin Must Be Punished.”  We read from Psalm 130 and Genesis 8:6-16.  Caleb’s memory work was Romans 6:23.
Science – This week we started a new chapter on Matter.  We discussed the different properties of matter, how to measure mass, how to measure volume, and physical vs chemical changes.
Social Studies – I had requested a book from the library on hold; however, since it didn’t come in we just skipped social studies this week.  Smile
Reading – Caleb read the following stories:
Amazing Animals by Robin Bernard
The Littles by John Peterson
Vocabulary – This week Caleb added the words “act, additional, advice, crumple, fan, memorize, mystify, pause, transparent, and vanish” to his list of terms.
Math – NEW CONCEPTS:  Days on a Calendar, Feet and Yards, The Degree Symbol, Reading Thermometers, Meter, and Expanding a Meter.  REVIEW CONCEPTS:  Fact Focus:  Opposites of Doubles 4, 5, 6; <, >, = in Number Sentences; and Fact Focus 8, 5, 3.  Caleb still seems to enjoy math somewhat.  I don’t think he’ll every enjoy it like I do; however, that’s okay!
English – This week we worked on pronouns and writing words in cursive. 
Like I mentioned above, things are about to change again here at Childress Academy.  However, I want to save that for another post.  So, stay tuned…
