Ask your third grader about:

-Writing what they would like to become famous for

-Raz Kids and what they're reading

-Unity Day assembly with our whole school

Spelling City

Your third grader may have mentioned working on Spelling City at home. Please use the username and password on the form I sent home at conferences to access the program. This is a great app/site we use to help study our prefix word list each week. The students know there are 4 assignments, and then they may try the other activities after that. Let me know if you have any questions about accessing this.

Multiplication Fact Practice

Please feel free to practice multiplication facts at home. Flashcards work well for this. Third graders should be fluent with facts 0-10. We will continue to practice the facts in school as well.


Please remind your third grader to:

-return the planner each day signed by parent/guardian

-return library books to read during literacy block

-return math homework


Next week, our class will...

-continue working on multiplication strategies

-receive a new prefix list (Tri-)

-focus on the comprehension skill Graphic Sources
