Creating Marble Runs to explore distance and relative speed:


Gator Communicators were distributed on Friday. These folders contain important information that should be reviewed. Forms or papers that are due back to the school may be returned via this folder. Gator Communicators will typically go home on Friday and should be returned to school the following Monday. Mid-quarter progress reports were in this past week's Gator Communicator. Please take time to review your child's progress, celebrate growth, and establish goals for the remainder of the school year!

Students will have a Communication Folder in which they will bring to school each day, and take home each day. Students will write their daily homework in this folder for your reference. This folder is also used to transport homework to and from school, and is also an easy way to communicate with me via notes, etc.

Homework: In general, the third grade team will be flexible in administering homework. On some nights, students may have a few math problems to complete, on others, students may be conducting a short interview or written response. Homework will be an extension of learning experiences from the classroom, but will not necessarily be the same each day. What should students do for homework each day?  I encourage students to practice their multiplication facts (0-10) for mastery, and they should read for 20-30 minutes each night to build stamina and reading endurance. Students may also receive a reading log with a sheet to record their reading experiences, or may choose to complete a Spring Book Report to teach others about a topic of interest.

Students will have a working snack each morning. Please encourage your child to bring a healthy, nutritious snack and to limit their snack to one choice per day.
