EPiC 3rd Grade

Camp Invention: This could be the start of something BIG!

Camp Invention is a resource that was recently shared with us. If you are interested in learning more about this program you can click here.


There is an upcoming camp in July at Liberty Oaks. Click here for more details.

Universe

The students have been learning about the Sun, Moon, and Earth. They have learned how these objects rotate and revolve as well as characteristics of each. After our research the 3rd grade students connected with Kindergarten to teach them about the Universe. Check out our blog for a report, picture and a video of our learning.

Absent Tab

There are so many benefits to each student having a mobile device! One advantage is the ability to learn regardless of the location. We have an absent tab of recommended learning for your student should he/she be absent. Please note we know illness may make this difficult and respect your decisions regarding this.

Math Facts Update

All students are officially working on multiplying and dividing within 100. One piece of this is learning to quickly and accurately solve multiplication and division facts using mental math. One way to help your child would be to log into Reflex Math on a regular basis and encourage practice! Click here for a link to the Reflex Math site.


Currently, Homeroom 1 is at 66% mastery and Homeroom 2 is at 74% mastery. We are setting a new class goal on Monday!


To find out how your child his doing ask him/her to log into Reflex. Once logged in ask them to "click on their pyramid" and you can see what facts have been mastered and what facts need continued work.
