We are excited to present our "Every Child Has A Story" video at school meeting next Friday, Oct. 16. The whole third grade will be singing the continent song that they learned in SS with Mrs. Boewe the following Friday, October 23.
Parents are welcome to pop into the cafeteria to see our presentations. School meeting begins at 8:50 am and should wrap up by 9:15 am. The finished video link will be sent to families in next week's newsletter.
ALL third graders needs to become more proficient with addition and subtract fact recall. Today in Friday folders everyone is receiving fact flash cards to be cut apart and used at home. We expect children to automatically recall all addition and subtraction facts instantly and accurately in the beginning of third grade. Students will be introduced to multiplication and division facts shortly and little class time will be spent on addition and subtraction. Please take time this weekend to help your child set up his/her fact practice and set aside 10-15 minutes a night to practice their facts.
