 Welcome to third grade. This year, students will have many new experiences.  They will learn to transpose information from text to paper. They will have a little more homework and responsibility. We will also continue to live our school wide learning expectations of Respect, Responsibility, Reverence and become Life-Long learners.  

 

 

March 19-29

 

Starting on Monday, Third Grade will be reading our first class book.  We are reading, Jake Drake Know-It-All by Andrew Clements.

This will be the majority of our Language Arts for the remainder of March.  Students will have a Comprehension Packet as homeworkThey will be bringing their book back and forth from school and home so please remind them to make sure it is in their backpack daily.

They will also have a spelling pretest on Monday using words found in our story.  Students will only be responsible for learning those words they spelling incorrectly on Monday.  They will be assessed on those misspelled words next week.

 

Also starting on Monday, we will be back to Mad Minute Packets.  This time they will be working on Division.  We started doing them in class last week. Overall they have done very well so far!

We are also working on Time so they will also have a worksheet on Time every night. I am asking for a Parent Signature each night to make sure you have reviewed the concept with your child.  Thank you for your support.

 

A really BIG congratulations to all of the Third Graders.  They have all passed their Sweet Facts through 12!!!!  A huge accomplishment.

We celebrated with Ice Cream and a movie on Friday :)

Third Grade will continue working on Xtramath every day so continue to support your child at home practicing facts they still need practice. Having strong math fact mastery will support success with concepts they will encounter in 4th grade.
