Hello 3rd Grade Families,

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! Many thanks for being such a great class. It is a pleasure working with you each and every day.

Teddy Bear Day is just around the corner. Try and bring in a new teddy bear (tags attached) any time between now and December 6th. All will be donated to families participating in the Adopt-a-Family program at our special Teddy Bear Day assembly.

Immediately upon our return from the Thanksgiving holiday, the St. Vincent de Paul food drive will begin. Grocery bags will be given out soon & we ask that you fill them with non-perishable foods for hungry families here in Ventura County.

This week in class…

Math: Unit 4 — The class continues to work on beginning multiplication and division concepts, focusing on what it means to do either and how the two are related. Students are learning their 0s, 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s facts. Please begin to practice these at home. Automaticity will be the end-of-year goal.

No math homework this week. Instead, just relax and count up all the family and friends we are thankful for in our lives.

Reading: There will be no fluency or reading log homework this week as well. Instead, cozy up with a good book at your leisure.

Word Work: Our next spelling test is scheduled for next Friday. For many, last week’s words were especially challenging so we gave everyone a little extra time.

Religion: We will be attending a special Thanksgiving mass Wednesday morning. As always, all are welcome to join us should your schedule permit.
