Hello Third Grade Parents,


Winter is here. Please remind your child to wear/bring a jacket or sweater to school
now that it is colder. If your child does not have a coat/jacket, they will not be
allowed to go outside during recess.


Here are the highlights of what we will study in the month of December.


Religion– We will read and discuss Lesson 6 – “How does God share his life with us?”,
Lesson 22 “Advent” and Lesson 23 “Christmas.”


Reading– We will review Unit 2 concepts, discuss a primary source, plot and setting,
explore poems, historical fiction, infer theme, and compare and contrast. We will
also explore a timeline, learn about biographies, and summarize informational text.


English Language Arts – This month, we will continue our unit on persuasive writing.
Skills/tools covered will include idea webs, compound sentences, and suffixes.


We will also discuss persuasive speeches, and the importance of knowing your
audience, the use of voice and body language, and visual aids.


Students will have a break from using Sentence Journals. This practice will continue
after the new year.


Social Studies – We are studying Colonial Massachusetts (Chapter 2) in the 1600s and
1700s, including some important people in the 1700s. We will then discuss key topics
surrounding The American Revolution (Chapter 3).
