Math Maniac...

We have begun multiplication! Please begin to study and drill your child in multiplication facts. Our students are having so much fun in math! The more they practice, the better they get! Big Brainz is a great way to practice these at home.


Our first Multiplication Quiz will be Monday, Dec. 7th and then every Monday after that.


Think Through Math is another great place to practice all of our math objectives!


Soon we will be sending home the first volume of your child’s math book. We are finished with this book, but there are still lots of activities that your child can work on. All objectives in this book have been taught, but not all worksheets were used. This is a great tool to practice and review with your child at home. These books do not need to come back to school.

Reminder!

* Please make sure your child is not bringing toys/gadgets to school so we can maintain a learning environment.


* Ask your child about supplies they may need, especially pencils and glue sticks! They may need to replenish.

Winter Break Fun Ideas!

The two week winter break is an excellent time for you and your child to continue the addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts. These are easy to do even on a road trip! Have fun and play math games over the break!

You and your child can spend many minutes and even hours reading fun winter books. Have your child read out loud, ask them questions regarding their reading, and then have them summarize what happened in the book in their own words. These skills are important as they continue to work towards mastery in reading.

We wish everyone a very peaceful holiday season. Relax and enjoy this extra time with your child! See you in 2016! The Third Grade Team

Attendance

PLEASE make sure your child arrives at school on time and is picked up on time. School starts promptly at 7:45am, but the gym doors open as early as 7:00am for your convenience. School also ends at 2:45pm. Attendance is key in your child’s education!
