Home Grade 3 Mrs. Bushur

Mrs. Bushur welcomes you to 3rd Grade!
This WILL be a GREAT year!!  Treat others the way you want to be treated.  I am excited to have your child for the 2018-2019 school year!

Please feel free to email me at sbushur@stanthony.com

  It is BEST to NOTE that your child's ASSIGNMENT notebook is the most reliable source for assignments. The first 9 weeks of school, I will initial it daily so you know that your child is filling it out. I would appreciate if you would look at and emphasize the importance of assignment notebook. If you want to sign it so that I know you have seen it, that would be great.

Religion-mainly done in class. Try to participate and bring in items when applicable. There will be some kind of assessment after each chapter. We also might do a craft/art project for understanding. We will be using FAITH FIRST LEGACY edition. Hopefully to grow spiritually and personally with GOD to be a life long practicing CATHOLIC. 

FOR MASS READING can listen too.

Math - We do "A" side together; if it is NOT done 
              correctly--vision and hearing skill need
              to improve vastly. (We do it together on the smartboard)
              "B" side is always homework. One paper is     
                facts the other is the lesson. If your child is working and using class
               time wisely, hopefully these papers will be finished.

We usually do a story in a week. Students are allowed to bring the book home to reread the story.  I do NOT make them take a reading book home, but if they want or need one, the book is there for them to take home. This website will go over the skills and vocabulary that is taught in the story. use the ppts. if you need them. HELP with Reading stories. Practice reading and listen to your child READ. Want to emphasize practice and growth for reading.

A selection assessment about the story will be given on Thursday or Friday. (paper/pencil. Quizizz or Kahoot or maybe google something)
Packet of papers will usually be complete or corrected on Friday. Teacher discretion if a grade is taken or not and if ALL pages need to be done.  Students will take an AR test on the reading story in our book and that will be counted as a grade.

 Spelling -  (website)  Spelling City

  Soc. Studies- Use of BINDER with papers to do. This will encourage reading the textbook. Assessment maybe written test, slide presentation, paragraph writing, picture, oral report after every chapter.                                   

Science - with Mrs. Deters (changing classes)
