Syllabus

MATH :

Go Math! is taught in third grade.  We will complete and check workbook pages in class each day after completing the lesson. Students will complete a practice page for homework. Refer back to your child's classwork pages to help assist him/her on homework.  Be sure to sign homework each night AND study math facts (addition, subtraction, or multiplication) for 5-10 minutes each night.  It is essential for your child to learn his/her facts.  Please pick up a set of multiplication flashcards and review facts nightly.

SPELLING: 

We have 20 spelling words each week. Please study with your child and give them a practice test on Wednesday. Our spelling test is every Thursday.  Your child will also get a handwriting grade on his/her Spelling Test each week. Practice writing neatly!

READING:

I will send home a study guide each Monday for Reading. It will have a list of all the vocabulary words, definitions, spelling words, and grammar focus skill.  Have your child READ the words to you. They must be able to apply and understand the meaning of each word.  

*Please have your child read the story assigned each night to an adult.

*Please have your child study his/her vocabulary definitions and spelling words aloud to an adult EVERY night. 

A reading vocabulary, spelling, and comprehension test will be given on Thursday.  A grammar and "cold read" comprehension test will be given on Friday.

A.R. READING: 

Each 9 weeks your child will be given a goal to reach with 85% accuracy.

PLEASE HELP OUR CLASS REACH OUR A.R. GOAL BY READING IN HIS/HER ZONE !

SCIENCE & SOCIAL STUDIES:

We will read, discuss, do experiments, and projects for each chapter we cover in Science and Social Studies. Reading, Science, and Social Studies will be integrated on many occasions.  

For each chapter there will be a vocabulary test and a chapter test.  Your child will also get a grade for classwork, projects, and class participation.

You will receive a study guide to complete before each test. Study with a parent and have it signed that you are ready!

CONDUCT:

Students are expected to follow classroom rules, write down homework, complete homework, and have certain papers signed. Appropriate behavior is expected in the classroom, hall, library, restrooms, and lunchroom.

Everyone begins the 9 weeks with 100 conduct points. Students will lose 1 conduct point when rules are not followed, papers are not signed, or homework is not completed.

100-90= A     89-80= B    79-70= C     69-60= D       

Anything lower than 60 is an F.
