Third Grade Week 17 in Review

We are done with another week at Childress Academy (note to self…work on a “cooler” name).  Smile  Here’s how week 17 went for us…
Bible – Our Bible stories focused on “God Wants Us To Be Happy” and “Jesus Came from Heaven.”  We read Psalm 100 and John 3:16-17.  Caleb’s memory verse for the week was Psalm 9:2.
English – This week Caleb worked on more adjectives, a/an/the as adjectives, and writing words in cursive.
Math – NEW CONCEPTS:  Copy problems with uneven digits; zero is a place holder; difference; and writing a solution.  REVIEW CONCEPTS:  carrying to the hundreds place; fact focus:  10, 6, 4; and fact focus:  8, 3, 11.  The only complaint I’m really hearing about math is that it is a lot of work, and I’ll agree…it’s MORE than what he’s used to.  However, I’m fine with that fact.  Smile
FUN SCHOOL – Due to scheduling conflicts, there wasn’t much opportunity for a whole lot of fun school.  We went to The Grand Opera House in Macon to watch a performance of Laura Ingalls Wilder.  We also went skating with our homeschool group.  Caleb worked on the 50 states flash cards, played with the tangram pieces, and read about rocks & minerals while studying his rock collection (one that was passed down from his uncles and cousin).  We also spent some time with Brian learning about the story of Caleb from the Bible.  Caleb also worked on one of his scavenger hunts which allowed him to work on time, read about wolves, study knights, review dictionary skills, complete some brain busters, make shapes with tangram pieces, review polygons, use magnetic English tiles to make questions, and review math facts. 
Stay tuned to see what all is explored and learned next week.
