Welcome to Mrs. Vetrano's Class Page
We are BaNaNaS about 3rd Grade!
Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome back to school! We are going to have a fun and exciting year in 3rd grade! I am looking forward to getting to know your child and cannot wait for our first day on September 5th. Most of the supplies needed for our classroom will be provided by our very generous PTA! Please bring the following items with you on our first day.
*lunch box or lunch money
*THREE folders (any color or design- please write name on folders)
Please start to also gather inspirational pictures, words, and/or quotes that can be used to decorate our Writer's Notebooks. Pictures of family, pets, friends, and hobbies are great to use! We will be decorating within the first few days of school. Please note that these pictures will be taped and covered on our notebooks, and will not be able to be taken off. Copies of pictures work well for this project. Thank you for your support at home!
I look forward to seeing you on our first day!! :)
Please check this page weekly for upcoming events and information. If you have any questions or concerns, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a note into school with your child.
*If you choose to bring in a birthday snack for the class please try your best to have the Nutritional Facts attached to it OR bring the recipe that was used due to health concerns with some students. WE ARE A PEANUT AND TREE NUT FREE CLASSROOM. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
*PARENTS: Please sign your child's planner every night and make sure they have completed all homework written for each day. Please be sure that your child is reading every night and recording on his/her reading log. Logs are due every Monday with both student AND parent signatures! Each student that has their log completed will be entered into a ticket drawing to win a prize from our prize box.
Check out the sections below to see what we are learning in each subject area!
Unit 1- Building a Reading Life
Homework: Read 20 minutes each night, and record on your reading log. Parents, please check that they are completing their reading and sign every night.
Reading Logs: We will use Reading Logs every night at home to monitor our reading. Our goal is to reach between 30-40 minutes of reading a night. By ensuring that your child is reading every night, you are helping your child increase their reading stamina and grow as a reader. Thank you for your support at home!
Each student will have individualized lists of spelling words. These word cards will be cut out each week and stored in their Word Study notebook. An additional copy of the words will be sent home for parents, along with a list of various activities that you can complete with your child. Nightly homework is not required, but any activites not finished in class will need to be completed at home that night. We will be on a 7 day schedule with each list, and complete practice activities in class each day. Spelling tests will be on the 7th day of our cycle, and will be written in your child's planner the day before. In addition to our spelling words, we will be focusing on increasing our vocabulary and working on grammar.
Unit 1- Personal Narratives
Topic 1- Understand Multiplication and Division of Whole Numbers
Homework: Each night, your child will complete a practice worksheet on a skill learned in class that day. Please make sure all highlighted problems are completed. Any other problems can be done for extra practice.
IMPORTANT: Third graders need to know their addition and multiplication facts quickly and accurately. We will begin with addition and move on to multiplication once those facts are learned. We will be practicing all week and will have a quiz every Friday. Please review the facts nightly. Flash cards are excellent tools for practice at home. Please also utilize the Math Bingo icon on the symbaloo for free math fluency practice!
**I highly recommend viewing the website below to become familiar with your child's textbook. The site has wonderful videos to reteach each lesson (helpful for parents too!), as well as worksheets and other practice materials. Please follow the directions on how to log in which can be found on the first page of your child's planner.
Please follow the directions below to help you navigate your child’s Pearson Realize account online.
