Students in Class 3-2 are challenged to achieve new knowledge and skills every day, always mindful that God is present in the classroom and in them. Students make connections through God in their schoolwork and every day life. The Math Curriculum builds on concepts of addition and subtraction, while introducing new concepts of multiplication and division, geometry and fractions.The English Language Arts Curriculum focuses on Spelling, Grammar, Reading and Writing skills. The Social Studies and Science Curriculum focuses on facts, research, and hands on learning. In Religion, students are guided to a deeper understanding of their faith and how to deepen their faith as they grow.‚Äč

MATH In our second Go Math chapter students will learn how to organize data. Students will be able to read and create frequency tables, picture graphs, bar graphs, and line plots. Students will then use their knowledge of graphing to solve one to two step word problems comparing data shown in graphs. At the completion of this chapter, students will gather their own data by asking their classmates a survey question of their choice (For example, What is your favorite sport?). Their classmates will make a choice . Once their classmates have taken their votes, students will use the data from their research question to create a frequency table, a bar graph, a picture graph, and a line graph. This project will count as another assessment grade!

We will be talking about singular and plural nouns. A noun that names only one person, place, or thing is a singular noun. A noun that names more than one person, place, or thing is a plural noun. Add -s to most singular nouns to form the plural. 

Comprehension Skills and Strategies
Our story this week will be "Roberto Clemente" by Jonah Winter. As we read and reread this story as a whole class, with a partner, and independently, we will be talking about cause and effect. The cause is why something happens. The effect is what happens.  

 We know that a well organized paragraph needs a topic sentence, relevant details, and a closing sentence. We will continue our practice of paragraph writing with October themed writing activities. 

Vocabulary Words
stands, fans, score, league, slammed, polish, style, pronounced

SOCIAL STUDIES- In our first chapter we will be talking about communities and the characteristics of three different types; urban, suburban, and rural. Urban communities are cities. Suburban communities are just like ours, outside a city. Rural communities are in more open areas such as farmlands or areas with forests. People establish different communities to meet their basic needs. Every person in a community is responsible for making their community a good place. The children will also learn map skills. They will be introduced to various types of maps and how to read them.
