A glimpse into your child's past week! December 4
Important Reminder: Late Start is this coming Wednesday, 12/9!
We are picking up the pace a bit in third grade.

Holiday Store - this coming WEDNESDAY afternoon

We are in the midst of Topic 5. Students have learned how to multiply by 2, 5, 0, 1, 9 and 10. We will continue to practice these facts next week. We will review for our Topic 5 Test on Wednesday and will take our actual Topic 5 Test on Thursday.
We have also begun Multiplication Sundae quick quizzes. This means that students will be taking an (almost) daily quick quiz on the fact that they are working to master. Once they pass the quick quiz (40 problems, all correct in 3 minutes), they will earn a portion of their sundae. Our actual Sundae Party will take place in February, but it's important to get working on memorizing the facts NOW!!!
In addition to the Library books they check out each week, your child should have taken AR quizzes on the following books that I've read to them so far:
