Memory for week of Feb. 19

Third Grade News – Feb. 15, 2018


     Thanks to everyone for helping support Penny Wars!  Next week, Thursday will be a special points day.  See the Parent Bulletin for details. 


Next week’s Literacy activities will be based upon the big story in our Storyworks Jr. magazine. It is called  The Killer Smog.  We will choose our spelling/vocabulary words from the story and they will go home on Tuesday. 


In math class, we have been studying different types of graphs.  We collected data and made our own graphs. 


Here is next week’s memory.


Recite on Tuesday, Feb. 20. (That’s the first day we return after the long weekend!)

Simon, Simon, behold.  Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail.

The Sixth Petition

And lead us not into temptation.

What does this mean?

God tempts no one.  We pray in this petition that God would guard and keep us so that the devil, the world, and our sinful nature may not deceive us or mislead us.
