Welcome to 3rd Grade

Wednesday December 1st is a minimum day. Students are released at 1:00pm.

We have 27 students in our class this year. Our main focus in math is multiplication and division, so any practice you can do at home with flashcards greatly supports your student's success in math. We have a reading goal program called Accelerated Reader. Students read books and then take a test on the book. They earn points for the questions they get correct. The goal for 3rd grade is 10 points per trimester. Tests can be taken at home or at school. Social studies focuses on local history and hopefully the county will be able to put on 3rd grade day this year.

In language, we will be learning about central message, sequence of events and identifying key details in literature stories- myths, different versions of fairy tales with various points of view and some drama of myths and classic stories. 
We are finishing up subtraction and working on a unit test for place value, addition and subtraction before we begin multiplication. We will switch this week to multiplication in our rocket math. MAPS testing is the next three weeks.
