Third Grade Thoughts
What We Are Learning:
Reading develops your child's brain, provides a window into the world around you, and helps kids do better in all school subjects.
Students should be reading 20-30 minutes per night. Asking your child questions as they read can help with their comprehension of the text. Some questions you can ask them are: What is happening in the story? What helped you to know that? Give me a few examples of ____ from your story. What do you think is going to happen in the next chapter?
Even big kids love to be read to by an adult. Make it fun; as you read picture books look at all the pictures, use voices for the characters, and predict how the story will end. Find an age appropriate chapter book to read as a family. Read a chapter each night before bed.
We will begin our mulitiplication fact competition soon to see who can get through all of their facts first! There will be a Clinkscale Cash reward!!!
