Ms. Damschroder's 3rd Grade

Week of December 1, 2014

What do I do at home?

Read EVERY night. Find a good book and READ, READ, READ!! You should read for at least 15-20 minutes every day. Make sure you are not reading something that is too easy or too hard. If you need books, let Ms. Damschroder know.

Practice memorizing multiplication and division math facts. if you need flash cards, let Ms. Damschroder know.


Many students from my class have been attending the Lift-Off Program at the Presbyterian Church. The next session runs from Dec. 4th-Dec. 18th on Thursdays. If you signed a permission slip for your child to attend, I will also need a note or something written in their agenda so I know they will be attending. Some parents have already written notes in the agenda for each week and that is wonderful. You can also send in a note with your child on the day of Lift-Off if that is easier for you. Thank you for your cooperation!
