Discovery Place: Students will participate in exhibits and programs that are STEM-based, immersive and aligned with our learning standards.
Imaginon- The students will watch one of the Children’s Theatre’s imaginative productions in one of the Imaginon’s beautiful theatres.
Hall Family Farm – Students will learn about the life cycle of a strawberry plant and will get an opportunity to pick their own strawberries to enjoy.
Multiplication Game: The students will create their own multiplication game for 2-4 players. Their games will be played throughout the school year with their classmates to reinforce the biggest math standard in 3rd grade – learning your multiplication facts!
Published Books: The students will become published authors this school year. We start this intensive writing process in early January. Each student completes the writing process with a final copy and an illustration. These will be compiled into a class book that every student has participated in. We will send the completed book off to a publisher and a hard back book will come back for each student in the class. We celebrate with a publishing party where the students share their pages will their parents and classmates.
Producer and Consumer Sale: The Annual Producer and Consumer Sale is a culmination of the Social Studies unit on Economics. Students produce items to sell, and use the classroom money they have earned over a period of time to purchase items being sold by other students.
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
We offer you all our thoughts, words, actions and suffering of this day
We ask for your grace, that we may not offend You this day,
But that we may serve You by showing love and kindness to those we meet today. Amen.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you;
Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
Act of Contrition
O My God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you.
And I detest all my sins because of your just punishments,
but most of all, because they offend you, My God, who is all good
and worthy of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your Grace,
to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.
Homework- Homework assignments will be collected/reviewed each day. Parents will be notified about missing homework with a note written in the child's agenda. Our goal is to help children develop good homework habits and to accept responsibility for their actions.
Agenda- Students will write homework assignments in an agenda daily.
Reading Log- Students will be responsible to read for 20 minutes every night. They will record their reading in their reading log which is attached to their agenda.
Expandable Folders- This will “house” all the children’s work that will travel to school, and home from school, daily.
