Mrs.Bennett's Third Grade News

September 19, 2016

Hello Families,

Hello everyone! Next week we’ll start to complete AR tests at school. These tests will not be counted as a grade for the first quarter. Students can take a test after they finish a book. Our goal is to be able to complete 3 tests by the end of the first grading period. Next quarter, AR will be counted as a grade and I will assign a certain amount of points your child will need by the end of the 2nd quarter.

If your child has not done so already, please send in headphones for them to use asap. These are needed for many parts of their day.

Reading Focus: Making inferences

Writing Focus: True stories

Math Focus: Finding estimates and exact answers with story problems

Social Studies Focus: Communities

Science Focus: Scientific method

Reading Homework-Students should be reading for at least 15 minutes per night.

Math Homework-The math homework this week will be review of subtraction and rounding numbers. Please do one page per night and turn in the packet Friday morning. In the following weeks, I will start assigning flash card practice as part of the nightly homework. It would be a good idea to make or purchase addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division flash cards.

Spelling Homework-Sort spelling words by feature (header).
