Ms. Capers' 3rd Grade Class


A little bit about me...

My name is Ms. Capers and I teach the 3rd grade! Just some fun facts about me. I was born in Manhattan, New York, but relocated to Georgia when I was seven. I like to call myself a Georgia apple. This year I will be going into my 10th year of teaching and my 6th year at HFE. My favorite things to do outside of teaching are reading, trying new restaurants, traveling, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends.

I am thoroughly excited for another extraordinary year at HFE!!

Participate Remote Days

Having our students in school each and every day is a priority for us here at HFE. We want to share with you information about Participate Remote Days

Approved Participate Remote Learning Days are a new addition to the Fulton County attendance policy as of last year. Each student is able to take 5 approved remote learning days each semester. These can be used when you have a special family event, required travel, etc. These days must be requested at least 5 days in advance and require principal's approval. These days may not be used on testing days. Here is how the process works:

1. Parent notifies student's homeroom teacher of wanting to take remote learning days.

2. Teacher will provide link for parents to fill out requesting remote learning days.

2. Teachers will provide work that must be completed within 5 days of the absence

Please reach out to Mrs. Dunagan with any questions.

Multiplication Fluency Practice

Multiplication and division are BIG concepts that is covered in 3rd grade math. With accelerated math fact fluency will make learning more complex concepts easier. For extra practice, I am listing below some FREE resources. These are not required, they are optional for extra support at home.


Below you will find some additional homework options for students to engage in. General practice can be done despite what is being currently being taught. Homework will be sent home on Mondays with students.

  • Students should pick 2 of the following activities:
  • 15 minutes of iReady Reading or Math (Students should have at lease 45 minutes by Friday each week)
  • Read for 20 minutes and complete a choice board activity (attached below)
