Welcome to 3rd Grade - We are better together!

Christmas Store is Monday morning. Wednesday is a minimum day - students will be released at 1:00pm.

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 culminating in a county wide 3rd grade day field trip in the spring.

December 5- December 9

I am out of town at a conference until afternoon on Wednesday. They will be learning about Christmas traditions around the world. We have MAPS testing for reading on Friday. We are working with words that have "oy" and "oi", ch, and various ending such as, es, ed, and ing.  

In math, we continuing with muliplication, practicing multiplication fluency; missing factors multiplication for 3, 4, 5, and 6; counting coins; and time to the minute. If you could practice counting coins at home and telling time to the minute on an analog clock, the extra practice would really help them solidify the concepts.
