3rd Grade

Third grade/ Tercer año

Every time the class meets (Tuesdays and Thursdays), the class is greeted with:
¡Hola clase!   or  ¡Buenos días clase!
¿Cómo están?

¡Hola maestra!   or  ¡Buenos días maestra!
Muy bien, gracias ¿Y usted?

The students are instructed in Spanish to stand up and to put their hands together for the daily prayer as follows:

Levántense, por favor y pongan las manos juntas.

En el nombre del Padre       
Y del Hijo
Y del Espíritu Santo.

Angelito de mi guarda
Angelito de mi guarda
De mi dulce compañia
No me desampares
Ni de noche
Ni de día.



Hail Mary
Dios te salve María
Llena eres de gracia
El Señor es contigo
Bendita eres entre todas las mujeres
Y bendito es el fruto de tu vientre, Jesús.

Santa María
Madre de Dios
Ruega Señora por nosotros los pecadores
Ahora y en la hora de nuestra muerte.
