Mrs. Wittrock

Third Grade Room 301

 It was great seeing you at conferences.  Will see the rest of you on Tuesday!  Thanks for taking time to meet with me.
We complete  NWEA testing on Friday, Feb. 16th with the Language Arts section.   Please make sure your child eats a good breakfast and gets a good night’s sleep on Thursday.
      I sent an email to all parents who volunteered to chaperone on our field trip on Feb. 21st.  If you did not receive notification please let me know.
      Due to Ash Wednesday falling on Valentine’s Day this year, the 3rd graders will be participating in a Valentine’s Day card exchange on Tuesday, Feb. 13th instead.  We will throw in a little Mardi Gras fun too!  A  class list was sent home on Friday in the yellow folders.
Please let me know if you need anything for the ecosystem project.  I am excited to see them!
     Epiphany has been chosen for the 4th year to participate in the Catholic Schools Raffle, sponsored by Catholic United Financial.  All raffle prizes and materials are provided by Catholic United Financial so 100% of the money raised from each $5 ticket sold stays at Epiphany.
Chances of being a winner is better than buying a lottery ticket!  Keep selling those raffle tickets!
We were classroom winners last week and hope to win again like second grade –two weeks in row!

Have a great week!

Religion:  We begin work on Chapter 16, Jesus Grows in Wisdom.  We talk about John the Baptist, Mardi Gras, and preparing for Lent.   We make our Lenten promises on Ash Wednesday and begin project of  discipleship.

Reading:  The story of the week is called, “The Dream Weaver.”  It is of the fantasy fiction genre.  The story is about a girl who runs away fromhome and becomes a professional dream weaver.  She later returns home to her family to help them and make an important decision.  We focus on the skills of finding main ideas and  supporting details.

Grammar:  This week we focus on contractions.  We work use not (n’t), will (‘ll), is (‘s) and have (‘ve) to add to pronouns.  We review compound words and use a dictionary to find entry words, parts of speech, and word meanings.

Mathematics:  We begin Chapter 10 multiplying two, three, and four  digit numbers by a one digit number. Keep practicing the facts 6-9 for mastery.

History:  We continue our study on the Vikings!  We will learn about the gods and goddesses and Nordic myths that are found in the Viking culture.

Science:   We have begun our  study of space, the planets, and the moon.  Keep working on the Ecosystem project.  REMEMBER you can bring it in before the due date.
