Homework and Spelling
You may be wondering what homework looks like in third grade. We generally have reading homework on Monday's and Wednesday's. On Tuesday's and Thursday's we have math homework.
I do ask that you encourage your child to read at least 20 minutes a night. I don't have students complete reading log as there is much published about the negative impact of reading logs. There is also a ton of research that suggests students read nightly to increase their vocabulary. I appreciate your help with nightly reading.
Spelling tests will start the third week of school. I will send out a flyer later this week with details on how you can assist with weekly spelling.
Thank you for all that you do as a parent. I'm getting to know your children and I look forward to working with them this year.
