    *PARENTS:  Please sign your child's planner every night and make sure they have completed all homework written for each day.  Each student that has their planner signed Monday through Thursday will be entered into a ticket drawing every Friday to win a prize from our prize box.  Check out the sections below to see what we are learning in each subject area!


    reading

    Homework:  Read 20 minutes each night, and record your reading on your reading log.   

    Reading Logs:  We will use Reading Logs every day to monitor our reading.  These logs will be used in class during independent reading AND the planner will be used to record their home reading in the planner every night.  Since you will be signing your child's planner, please make sure your child records their reading in the Literacy section, so that I can be sure they are completing their nightly reading.  Our goal is to reach 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!

    Reader's Responses:  Once a week your child will complete a Reader's Response at home in their Reader's Notebooks.  These will be based on a shared reading in class or their independent books.  Their responses will be an opportunity to apply specific reading skills and strategies being learned in class.  


    WTW 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.  Nightly homework is not required, but any activities 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.  


    WW    Writer's Workshop 


    math

    Homework: Each night, your child will complete a practice worksheet on a skill learned in class that day.  

    IMPORTANT: Third graders need to know their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts quickly and accurately.  We will review with addition and subtraction, and move on to multiplication and division once those skills are refreshed.  We will be practicing all week and will have a quiz every Friday.  Please review the facts nightly.  Flashcards and the IXL online math program are excellent tools.  

     

    **It is highly recommended viewing the website below to become familiar with your child's textbook.  The site has wonderful videos to teach each lesson, 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.
