3rd Grade

Week One

It has been a fantastic, first week! I have enjoyed getting to know each of your children and I am excited about the potential this class has. This week, we were busy establishing our rules and practicing the many school procedures.

We started our first math lesson on Wednesday from Chapter 1. Most of this chapter will be review concepts for our third graders. We also started our Number Talks. A Number Talk is a short, ongoing daily routine that provides students with meaningful practice with computation.

I have started our Fountas and Pinnell reading assessments with the class. If your child was here last year, they were "leveled" using this same system. This will allow me to better understand each child's current reading level and skills. We will then work together to create their reading goals.
