Mrs. James' Class Newsletter

March 29-April 1

A note from the teacher...

We have finished up all of our major units! It is insane to think of how quickly this year has flown by! I am not sure I am ready for the end of the year because this class has been so amazing! However, they ARE ready to rock this end of the year test!!! We will be reviewing for Milestone this week. For homework, I am listing plenty of Milestone review websites on Google Classroom. Please encourage your students to go through these nightly. Also, IXL Language and Math are EXCELLENT tools for reviewing specific third grade standards. :)


Please encourage students to read nightly (20 minutes at least) and practice math facts. I am noticing that some students are not reading nightly, especially once they meet their AR goals. I encourage students to continue reading because if they stop reading, their fluency and comprehension will stop growing as well. Reading should be fun! Read with your child, let them read to a sibling, stuffed animals, etc. Anything to get your students reading ALOUD will be beneficial to their fluency! :)
