End of Third Grade

Posted on

Although we are not having an official field day due the time constraints that the M-Step has placed on us, we will be having fun activities daily to celebrate the end of 3rd grade. We will be spelling THIRD GRADE by the last day of school.  Tomorrow we will celebrate the letter T by trying to blow the biggest bubble outside. 


Government Review

Posted on

We have been learning about Michigan’s government during a portion of our Writing block. There will be a test on Friday, May 22nd. A review sheet came home on Monday.

  • Judicial Branch: Supreme Court, Judges (7), interpret laws
  • Executive Branch: Governor, enforce laws
  • Legislative Branch: Senate (38), House of Representatives (110), make laws
  1. Why do we have 3 branches of government and not just one? We have three branches so that no one has too much power.
  2. What is democracy? It is a form of government in which the power is held by the people when they vote for leaders and laws.
  3. What is Popular Sovereignty? It is the right to vote to make decisions.
  4. What is the Capital of Michigan? Lansing
  5. How do senators, representatives, and governors get their jobs? They are elected.
  6. What happens if the governor signs a bill? It becomes a law.
  7. What is a veto? If the governor thinks a law is wrong he/she can veto (reject) the law.
