Here you will find all the information you need to keep you up to date on the material we are learning in class.

We have been learning about multiplication. Students are also learning their multiplication facts!  Please make sure they practice their facts each night!

We have been reading Wind in the Willows. The students are really enjoying the story. During our discussions we have learned about personification, dialogue, narration, and theme.
WE have been learning about the Rivers of the World. 

Our first science unit will be on Animal Classification!

We are learning about all the different parts of a written piece. 



Math Workbooks: Your child will have a couple pages to complete from the math lesson covered that day. Some of the problems will be completed during the math lesson with me.
  • Multiplication: Your child will make multiplication flash cards every Monday. They will study them every night during the week. Multiplication quizzes are on Fridays.
  • Spelling: They will receive a list on Monday and practice/study the words throughout the week. Spelling quizzes will be on Fridays.
  • Reading: They will receive a packet of reading passages  and questions on Monday. They will need to read the passages and answer the questions by Friday.
  • Reflex Math-Students will be required to get three green lights each week. Students will start out practicing their addition and subtractions facts and then move to multiplication and addition.
  • Also, one crucial part of being in 3rd grade increasing stamina. We need to increase their stamina throughout the year so they are able to stay focused and fresh throughout the EOG testing time.
  • **If you do not have access to internet, let me know. When the kids start doing online homework I can make time for them to do it at school.
