3rd Grade Math

We are beginning our chapter on multiplication. We will be learning our basic facts. One way you can help your child improve on these multiplication facts is by going through flash cards with them.  Cheap flashcards can be found at the Dollar Store. Throw them in your car for some quick math fact work on the way to school, church or a sports practice. These facts are the basis for so much that we do in math so working to help your child memorize these is very beneficial!

Due to NWEA testing, we will have less math assignments this week.

Tuesday (1/22): 1 Timothy 4:4-5

Friday (1/25):  The Fourth Petition: Give us this day our daily bread.

What does this mean? God certainly gives daily bread to everyone without our prayers, even to all evil people, but we pray in this petition that God would lead us to realize this and to receive our daily bread with thanksgiving.

Extra credit: What is meant by daily bread? Daily bread includes everything that has to do with the support and needs of the body, such as food, drink, clothing, shoes, house, home, land, animals, money, goods, a devout husband or wife, devout children, devout workers, devout and faithful rulers, good government, good weather, peace, health, self-control, good reputation, good friends, faithful neighbors, and the like.
