Dear Families,  

We are in the home stretch!  It's hard to believe that we are only a few weeks away from summer vacation!  The children have been doing such great work over the past few weeks and have been enjoying all of the special activities that we have been doing.  Tomorrow we have our walkathon, and we are hoping for great weather for that too!

This week we will continue working on finding area and perimeter in math.  The children have seen that multiplication and addition skills are very important for these skills.  I can't stress enough how important it is for the children to keep practicing their facts.  It will make the rest of this year and the beginning of fourth grade so much easier!  

We have finished our Journeys textbook.  Today we began reading Nim's Island, a book about a girl and her dad who live on an island and the adventures that they have.  The children will be working on various reading skills and writing activities tied in with this book over the next few weeks.  It has always been a third grade favorite.  We will continue reviewing grammar and writing topics as well. 

I am looking forward to seeing all of the soda bottle projects this week.  The children are very excited about this and I know most have been working on it a little bit at a time.  We have finished the unit on culture, so they will be having  a test on chapters 10 and 11 next Tuesday.  Please look at the review sheet that is attached to the calendar for more information about the test.  The children can keep their social studies text books at home to study.  

We will be finishing learning about the sacraments of healing this week.  Then we will be moving on to learning more about the Bible stories that tell about Jesus's teaching and the work that he did while he was on Earth.  We will be discussing ways that we can continue that work in our own lives.

I hope that everyone has a great week!  
Mrs. Toritto
