Third Grade Week 22 in Review

Here’s how this past week went for us…
Bible – Our Bible stories were on “Jesus Lives Again” and “Jesus Showed Himself to His Friends.”  We read Matthew 28:1-8 and John 21:1-8.  Caleb’s memory verse was I Corinthians 15:4b.
English – This week Caleb worked on antonyms and synonyms.  He’s still really enjoying the ACE Paces, and he’s doing really, really well.
Math – NEW CONCEPTS:  Counting by 3’s to 30; Pentagon, Hexagon, Octagon, Oval; Choosing Coins for a Value; and More Words That Tell Us to Subtract.  REVIEW CONCEPTS:  Fact Focus:  14, 9, 5; Fact Focus:  15, 9, 6.  Caleb is still doing really well with the CLE Light Units.  It seems to be the right for now.
FUN SCHOOL – Here’s what Caleb worked on during Fun School…Math:  He read Mummy Math:  An Adventure in Geometry by Cindy Neuschwander and played with his Hot Dots Money Cards.  English/Brain:  He worked on a decoding worksheet, a secret code worksheet, and a “name something” worksheet.  Reading/Magazine:  He read his Click:  Farm Animals magazine.  Science:  He read his Farm Animals book and typed up a report on farm animals.  Bible:  He read a devotional on “Heidi Has An Attitude.” 
We will probably be skipping FUN SCHOOL until after the New Year.  We’re still a few weeks behind in our regular studies, so I want to take the time to get us caught up with that since we’re hoping to be out of town for Christmas.  So, for the next 3 weeks, Caleb will work on Handwriting, English, and Math.  Then, I’ll come back and do a combined review of those three weeks.  Smile
