Math

We will be continuing our measurement unit over the course of the next few weeks. Help your child practice at home with rulers, clocks, and thermometers! This week's focuses are time, elapsed time, and temperature.


At home, please continue to work with your student on their basic facts in all 4 operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division). Flash cards work well, as do the many iPhone and iPad apps available for free!

Science/ Social Studies

This year, our third grade science skill is "forces" and our third grade social studies skill is Oklahoma History. We will be working on these topics throughout the school year.
