I gave the students an extra weekend to study. :) The end of the quarter is on Wednesday and ALL assignments are due by Monday, May 10th. Please double check your students grades on Jupiter for missing assignments. If you have any questions or concerns w

    Tuesday we will be going on our Sierra Mines field trip. I am so excited to experience this with you all. If you have signed up to help car pool, we need to have a copy of your drivers license and insurance BEFORE Tuesday. 

    What to bring for the trip:

    *SACK lunch ( EVERYTHING disposable!)

    *Water bottle 

    * Light jacket 

    *Extra spending money if you wish ( There's a nice storefront with a lot of cool finds!) 

    * A good attitude that will represent CCA well! 

    This week we will be going over our spelling in class, but we will not be testing. 

    Wednesday the 12th is the end of the quarter. 

    Thursday and Friday I have the ones that wanted a parent teacher conference signed up. There will be no school on Thursday and Friday, but childcare is available. If you need confirmation on your conference day and time please message me. I hope you are all doing well and serving the Lord with your whole heart.

    Hello third grade families. 

    This last week was very productive. We completed our science book, so we will be having our science final on Thursday, May 6th. Your student received a study guide last Friday, so hopefully you've received it. I have the majority of you signed up for parent teacher conferences. If you would like a conference, please get ahold of me ASAP if you haven't already. 

    Also, we need permission slips and money for our Sierra Mines field trip turned in no later than Thursday, May 6th. On our flyer below I listed that we are in need of 300 plates, forks, spoons and napkins. Please let me know what you are able to provide for our Mother's Day brunch. Our brunch is this FRIDAY from 9-11am. We will not have school after. So you're good to take your kiddo and enjoy the day if you can. Daycare is available if you need it. Once again, thank you for everything you all do to help our school and classroom.

    Hello everyone :) 

         I hope you all enjoyed your spring break. I am excited to get back into the classroom and pick up where we left off. In class we will be going over our book reports that are due on Friday. I am happy to help proof read their "sloppy copies" so they can work on their final draft. Your student may end up having their final draft as homework if we run out of time in class.

         This week it's time for review. Our spelling list will be review words, we will be testing in history on Wednesday. Also we will be continuing our paragraph writing.

         I can't believe we are almost through the 3rd quarter. This year has flown by and I don't even want to think about our class becoming 4th graders. :(  I will be posting parent/ teacher conf. sign-ups soon as we approach May 13th and 14th.If you need to schedule with work or pencil those dates in, here they are. I look forward to sharing the growth of your student.

    Kindergarten through 6th grade will be conducting ITBS (Iowa Tests of Basic Skills) Mon-Thur April 19-22.

  • WEEK 23 Mar. 22-26

         Hello third grade families. These last couple weeks we have had a lot of challenging concepts. I am really trying to help the students become more independent before passing them off to fourth grade. You will notice on their work, I am marking them wrong if they aren't reading the instructions and following every step. I am confident they will grow from these mistakes and learn how to work more independently. I can't even believe we are getting closer to the end of the third quarter. This one flew by. The end of the quarter is on May 7th, just four school weeks away. 

         In class we have been working very diligently on paragraph writing. I know writing isn't their favorite, but I am very proud of them all. We also had our pen pal "Trucker Buddy" come for a visit last week and this week we sent off his letters. So we have a lot of writing practice going on. Towards the end of the year I am hopeful that the class will be confident writers. 

         "Read to Ride" (Silverwood pass) logs are due March 26th. If you do not turn one in, you will not be receiving a free ticket. If you are wanting that, remember to log it down and turn them in THIS FRIDAY or before. Also easter eggs and candy is needed for our hunts this Friday. If you can bring any, that would be a huge help.

     

         In math a few students could really benefit from practicing their math factors. We are currently focused on the factors of 8 and 9. So any help at home will benefit them.

         This last spelling test was very challenging for the whole class. Any help at home makes a huge difference on test day, even if its just reviewing them together before dinner.  The future spelling lists will continue to be more challenging. The rules state, "When the letter c is followed by an e, i, or y the letter c will say the s sound. If c is followed by any other letter, it will say the k sound. Here is the list below, also don't forget to look at our class flyer in the "files" below to see our testing schedules.

  • WEEK 20 March 1-5th

    Hello third grade families. I hope you all enjoyed your off week. I am very proud of each students book report they completed. We are currently learning to write paragraphs and use transitional sentences, so this was a big assignment for them. Great job, third graders. When we return to school, I will be passing back their rubric/grade for their report. Thank you so much for all your support. Just a reminder, your student needs to be studying their spelling words every night. Our lists just increased to 25 last week (13 for modified lists) including the vocabulary. Your student knows they need to know the meaning of the vocabulary for their test. If your student doesn't complete an assignment in class, it is homework and should be returned the following day for credit. We are in the third quarter now so I've encouraged them all that completing our assignments in a timely manner is required, since we are halfway to becoming fourth graders. CRAZY! Once again thank you for your prayers and support for our classroom. We are so grateful. Remember to look at the weekly flyer.

    Hello everyone :) 

    I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I am very proud of how each student has stayed on task this last week. They've all been diligently working to turn in all their work or catching up on any missing assignments. Thank you all so much for your support. This week we will be testing in history. Your student received a study guide on Friday, and should've brought it home. We will also be ending this week with our Valentine's Day party after lunch on Friday, February 12th. We are in need of boxes (shoe, cereal, kleenex, etc.) for them to decorate in class and put their cards in. Students are able to bring any treats to share with the class. I also sent home a list of names for their Valentine's Day cards on Friday. 

    In spelling I have noticed a huge difference in the ones that are studying at home. Thank you so much for all your help! Below is your students spelling words for the week. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

  • WEEK 17 Feb. 1-5

    Hello third grade families. I hope you all enjoyed your week off. This upcoming week we have a lot to accomplish. We are three weeks from the end of the second term. CRAZY!! Your student can really benefit from practicing multiplication factors at home. We are finished with our 7's and now focusing on having our 8's down. 

    Language is the main subject that your student needs to slow down in and make sure they're following every instruction. On Friday, before the break, your student received a list or "key" on all the rules of language that they should know or that we are currently working on. I will be sending homework with your student in language if they need extra help. 

    In science we are learning about the Animal Kingdom. In language we are required to complete a book report so we will be incorporating our knowledge from science and writing a book report on the animal book your student receives in class. This may require homework if they are not complete with it during class time. We have a lot to accomplish in these last three weeks, so attendance is key. Also our class could use snack and treasure box items if you are able. 

    Thank you for everything you do to help our class succeed. Please remember to click the link for our weekly flyer.

    Hello everyone.

    This last week went so quickly. We caught up in science on some quizzes and tests, so this week we will be starting the Animal Kingdom. In History your student received a study guide last Friday, we will be testing this Thursday. Any help studying for tests and spelling work at home shows tremendously in the classroom. Also be on the lookout for progress reports. If your student has missing assignments, I am keeping them at recess until they're complete. We are down to the last couple weeks before the end of the quarter so attendance and making sure all assignments are in is key. Thank you so much for everything you do for our class. You are very appreciated.

    Hello third grade families. Thank you so much for your prayers and support. I am so grateful for Mrs. Mueller and her ability to sub at the drop of a hat. It is such a great feeling as a teacher when you know the substitute filling in for you has the same values and love. Praise the Lord. 

    This upcoming week is going to be another great week of learning. Please make sure you are reviewing the weekly flyers to better understand the specifics of what we are reviewing in each subject. If you have not returned your yearbook form, it must be turned in asap. There are extra ones at the school if you need another, but Mrs. Young needs a count on how many to order right away. If you do not want to purchase one, please return the slip with the "no" box checked. The Selfish Ladybug play will be assigning parts soon so if your student has not turned in a slip saying they want to participate, please do so by Monday. 

    Thank you all so much for everything you do for or classroom and school. You are appreciated.

    Blessings,

    Mrs. Padula

    HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

    Wha hoooo... I hope you all enjoyed your long break. As we come back to the classroom I am hopeful that we will be refreshed and ready to learn. As you know, we go over a lot in a day. These upcoming weeks are going to be filled with some new challenges in math. I am noticing a lot of students still struggling with some of their math factors, so we will be taking some extra time to get them memorized. Division has been an exciting step. Watching the "lightbulb go on" with your students brings me so much joy. Down below will be week 14 spelling words. ANY help your student can get at home will really benefit them. Thank you all for everything that you do to help our classroom succeed. I am very grateful for you all.

    Hello everyone. This week will have very minimal curriculum. As we prepare for Thanksgiving break we are going to end subjects at a easy transition spot to continue when we return to class. There will be no spelling this week since we have parent teacher conferences on Thursday and Friday. I look forward to meeting with you all. For the evening appointments I have them scheduled Wednesday after school. Our third grade class room will be occupied with daycare kiddos, so our conferences will take place in the sanctuary (two classes down, towards the baby classes). Once again I look forward to meeting with each on of you. 

    Blessings,

    Mrs. Padula 

  • WEEK 9

    Hello third grade families,

    We were very productive last week. This week we will be finishing up history with a test before the end of the quarter. We also will be presenting our Pilgrims Progress poster to the class. On Friday, your students will be having their first class store. They have been working very hard to earn money based off good behavior, Christ- like acts, scoring high on tests and working together as a group for their daily "row points". I am very proud at how much this class has grown in such a short time. Each one of your students are so precious and I am so happy to have them as my class. If you have anything you would like to donate to the class store, we would really appreciate it. Friday the 13th our class will be having pajama day. We will be watching Pilgrims Progress together as a class with popcorn. This will be a fun day. 

    Just a reminder- CCA will be closed on Wednesday, November 11th for Veterans Day. Our class Thanksgiving Feast is Wednesday, November 18th. I have a sign-up sheet posted outside the classroom. Parent Teacher conferences are scheduled and I am looking forward to meeting with each one of you. November 23-27th is an off week. CCA will be closed on November 26-27th for Thanksgiving. This is a busy month. :)

    Thank you so much once again.

    Hello,

    Last week was very busy. We ended our week with a science test and everyone seemed to do very well. There are a few that I will allow them to retake the test if they would like. As you may have noticed, we have a lot to get accomplished in a school day. Attendance is key. When we have up-coming tests, we as a class do a lot of review. I also send your student home with a study guide. Any review at home will greatly benefit your student. On November 18, we will be having our Thanksgiving Feast. We have a sign up sheet outside our classroom. Also we are in need of ANY items for our first class store. Your student has worked very hard to earn "class money"- this is their time to spend what they have earned. It is a lot of fun. I want to personally thank you for everything you do for the success of your student and our class. You all are amazing. Thank you again.

    Hello everyone :) 

    We have had an amazing first month back in the classroom. I am so proud of each one of your students. We have been very busy in every subject. We have recently started reading a book in class called Pilgrims Progress. It is an amazing book and i hope your students are enjoying it. When we complete this book, we will start our first book report together, followed by a project. I will be sending information home on both of those. Just a reminder next week is an "off" week- but daycare is available. The number one thing you could work on at home is helping your students practice their spelling words. We try to incorporate it in our school days, but some times we don't have enough time. Below is this weeks list. Please let me know if i can do anything to help your student succeed. I am here to help. Once again, thank you for all that you do for these third graders. YOU are very appreciated.

    WOW! What an incredible third week. I am so impressed at how hard each one of your students has worked. We are right on track with our curriculum and I am very proud of everyone. We have had a majority of the missing assignments turned in, so that is great. I still have a couple students with missing work. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact me. 

    In spelling for the week, it states that the English language doesn't put an i at the end of a word, unless it is borrowed from a different language. We usually place an e. (spelling list is below)

    Week two was amazing and i'm looking forward to another week to follow. We are praying the smoke clears up so we can enjoy some fresh air outside. I am very pleased with each student and have been observing them all to see their strengths and weaknesses. I am still missing a couple "parent homework" pages. If you do not have time to write a letter about your student, thats ok. I do need the contact information returned tho. All grades have been put in Jupiter Grades. If your student has a zero, it is because I have yet to receive the work. Any incomplete seat work from our school days is always sent home in their homework folder to complete and bring back the following school day. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. 

    It was very nice to meet the guardians that came to open house. I look forward to meeting you all at some point. Once again thank you for all that you do to help our classroom excel.

    This last week we started history and science and this week we will be introducing quizzes and tests. We will be completing these together as a class and my main focus is to teach your student how to find the answers in their book. 

    This Tuesday at 5:30 is open house and I would love to meet you if you're available. If not, I completely understand and look forward to when you are available.

  • WEEk 1 Sept. 8-11th

    Welcome third grade families. I am so excited to get to know your students and be their teacher this year. Third grade is a lot of fun. It is also the beginning of a lot of "firsts" for your student. In third grade we quiz and test in history, science and health as well as math and language. In reading we are focusing on comprehension. Understanding what we are reading is a big part of third grade. I am sure a lot of your kiddos will go home and say "third grade is tough", but I assure you, they can do it. I am so happy to walk along side them each individually and as a class. In our class we have "money". I use this as an incentive for good behavior, well test taking and Christ like attitudes. We will have class stores periodically and so far it has been a big hit for the kiddos. On this newsletter weekly you will be able to find your weekly Spelling words and any upcoming events. I also like to attach a class "flyer" to the right of this page. If you click on the current week I put details down on what we are learning, upcoming tests and any class needs. Your student will have homework. Every week I require them to write their Spelling words 3x ea. Also any un-finished class work will be sent home that day to bring back completed and turned in the following day. I do offer time in class to work on their spelling words if they haven't completed them yet, but they are due Friday mornings. Thank you so much for staying up to date with this page. I am so grateful for your prayers and support for the success of your students and the third grade class.
