Check us out! Third Grade Rocks!
This week in Third Grade...September 28, 2015
As you know, our third graders are excited about using Biblionasium as their on-line reading log. Our purpose in using this resource is to promote reading outside of class and motivate our students to explore reading in a new and exciting way. At your discretion, your child can log on daily or once a week to record their reading minutes. We will be issuing a Biblionasium reading challenge soon and look forward to seeing our students participate! Again, if you have any questions we can assist you with please do not hesitate to contact your Third Grade Team!
