THE THREE HOOTS
REMEMBER TO PRACTICE MATH FACTS DAILY WITH YOUR CHILD
Thank you so much for helping your child master their addition math facts. Most nights you should expect to see the quiz from the day come home in their daily folder. They will either need to practice the facts from that days’ quiz or start practicing to pass the next level. If they passed, they will be bringing home a copy of the next level to study.
At the beginning of the month we read a humorous story about a character named Sarah Jane. Sarah Jane is worried about going to a new school. She refuses to get out of bed because she keeps imagining all the bad things that can happen. It is a great story to start off the school year because our third graders can understand and sympathize with Sarah's feelings and laugh when they discover the surprise ending to this delightful story. Next, we are reading an informational story about a green school in Michigan. The school utilizes nature for many of their everyday needs.
Homework will be handed out every Friday and due back on the following Wednesday. Homework will consist of a review of the weekly work completed in class. Parents will be required to look over and sign their child's homework weekly. This week's homework will be completed in class with your child's homeroom teacher. This will allow your child to get used to our format and expectations. We will eventually have our homework on the iPad when they are distributed by our Tech Director. However, until then we will maintain paper/pencil homework.
In addition to weekly homework, we will also require a monthly reading calendar. Reading calendars will be due at the beginning of each month. Each month your child will be required to read a set amount of minutes. October calendars went home on the first and reading goal for this month is 120 minutes! Reading calendars will be due on or before November 2nd.
