Third Grade Week 38 in Review

We finished up another GREAT week of schooling today.  Here’s how it went for us…
Bible – Our lessons were on “Jesus Prays For Us” and “Angels Watch Over Us.”  We read John 17:9-15 and Acts 12:5-11.
Math – Caleb worked on quarter and fourth, finding the change, and borrowing twice.
English – This week Caleb worked on writing sentences in cursive, changing telling sentences to asking sentences, changing asking sentences into telling sentences, similes, and writing paragraphs.
FUN SCHOOL – We had another GREAT week of fun school activities…

  • Map It Monday – We read The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf, and Caleb worked on a character map.  He completed a character map of Ferdinand.
  • Mathematical Monday – We played a dice game.  We would take turns rolling, and then using multiplication, we had to fill out a section on graph paper.  We each took 10 turns, and the person who had covered the most ‘area’ at the end won.
  • Travel Somewhere Tuesday – Caleb chose California this week.  So, using books from the library, he completed his notebooking fact sheet on California.
  • Technology Tuesday – Caleb chose to watch Beakman’s World on Netflix.
  • Working with Words Wednesday – This week we focused on synonyms.  Caleb completed a ‘Super Synonyms’ worksheet activity using a thesaurus.
  • Want To Know More Wednesday – Caleb chose construction as his topic of choice for this week.  He read several books from the library on the subject.  Then, he completed a house grid activity and a tangram house building activity.
  • Think It Through Thursday – We worked on some Brian Boosters today.
  • Turn the Page Thursday – Caleb spent time reading from our home library.
We’re down to about 7 more weeks of school.  Then, we’ll take a quick break before resuming again for 4th grade.  We’re looking forward to the small break, too.  Smile
