*** Spelling: In an effort to enhance student success, lists are now leveled based on Walk to Reading differentiated reading grouping. Please encourage your child to study and practice spelling words every night.
** Eureka Math is a cyclical based curriculum; which means the skills will be taught more than once in the school year. The math HW is an opportunity for the children to practice the skills currently being taught in class. If there is something they do not understand or struggle with, please note it on the HW and the teachers will review more in class. Keep in mind, that these are new skills for your child and it is expected that they will take time to master the concepts. Additional resources can be accessed in the Florence website at: mr.fusdaz.org - found under teacher website 3rd grade eureka math parent page.
