Hello Third Grade Families,

Your children enriched my life everyday, with their love of learning, faithful prayers, and desire to grow and improve both inside and outside of the classroom. I know they will do wonderful work next year in 4th grade, and they can always come back to say hello. I send you all my love and prayers for a blessed, fun, and relaxing Summer.

🙂  Mrs. Quezada

Hello Third Grade Parents,

I hope you enjoyed the Spring Concert last week. The class really loved performing for you! A HUGE THANK YOU to Mrs. Martin Del Campo and her team of parent helpers, who purchased and made all of the children’s costumes. (If you haven’t done so already please submit $10 payment to class so that I can forward the funds to her.)

As the year is winding down, you will notice a less homework and fewer weekly tests. Please do help to make sure that your child is still completing the homework that is assigned, as it counts toward their report card subject grades. Religion Service Journal homework (Tuesday night) is important. Please remember to read and sign your child’s weekly page.

Have a wonderful week & God bless you and yours,

Mrs. Quezada

Good Afternoon Third Grade Families,

I hope you had a lovely weekend! We’re in for fun week…

Remember~

Pizza Party-Third Grade will have a pizza party to celebrate the memorization of the multiplication facts to 12. This will take place on Friday April 27th. Please do not order hot lunch, or go ahead and cancel Choice Lunch, for this day. I’ll provide pizza, drink, and a treat. Please just send your child to school with water and a snack for earlier in the day.

 

**Native American Housing Model-Due Wednesday April 25th.~Displayed at The International Dinner on Thursday April 26th, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm.

Third grade students are studying many Native Americans tribes. We are learning much about their lifestyles and cultures. In class, we will take all our learning and write a research paper. At home, please help your child to construct a model, or diorama, of any Native American shelter/housing. The shelter will be your child’s choice. They could choose any Native American housing type that they wish, from those that we’re studying. The model must be on a sturdy base no larger than 12″ by 12″. It should include a label including your child’s name, the tribe, and the shelter/housing name. This model can simply be a model of the house/shelter, or it could be a diorama, including scenery and props (grass, trees, crops, Native American figurines, animals, etc.) The model can be made of anything that you like. Past projects have been made of materials from craft stores like Michael’s (clay, paint, faux grass, rocks, hay). You can even use pretzels, Legos, sugar cubes, even natural resources from your backyard or a park. You can do research online, or at the library, for examples of these houses. 

I am not expecting museum quality models/dioramas, so please assist your child, but let them do the majority of the work. I hope this will be an enjoyable project for your child, and a chance to have some fun with you.

Tribes/Housing Types:

Kwakiutl/Tlingit-long house some with totem poles (also called cedar plank house)

Inuit-igluviak (igloo)

Navajo-hogan

Sioux/Cheyenne-tipi (sometimes spelled teepee)

Wamponoag-wetus (sometimes called wigwam)

Iroquious-long house

Seminole-chickees

Nez Perce-long house also underground shelters and tipis (chooose 1 or 2)

Maidu-earth lodges
