HOW CAN I DO WELL IN THIRD GRADE?
 
.
 
 
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 usually complete a practice page for 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 their facts.

 

SPELLING
 We have 20 words each week. Please study with your child and give them a practice test at home on Wednesday night. Our spelling test is every Thursday.

Make sure you child can spell all 20 words on their list correctly.

You may want to learn to spell 5 words each night. You will also get a handwriting grade on your Spelling Test each week. Practice writing neatly! 

We will write in CURSIVE this year so BE NEAT with your handwriting and practice your cursive! 

READING: 

I will send home a study guide each Monday for Reading. It will have a list of all the vocabulary words, definitions, and spelling words. It will list the focus skill, grammar skill, and the title and author of our story. Your child also has vocabulary words defined in their yellow vocabulary folder to use when studying. Have your child READ the words to you. They must be able to read the words as they encounter them in our story.
The Selection Test will be given on Thursday and will cover the Story from the Anthology book and Vocabulary from the story.
"Cold Read" Tests will be given on Friday. This is a longer test. They will be asked to apply skills previously learned to two stories they have never read before. The current Language skills will also be covered on this test. 

*Read your vocabulary words, definitions, and spelling words aloud to an adult EVERY night *  


A.R. READING: 

For the SECOND A.R. Party students will attend a  Special Event.

CONDUCT:

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

Everyone begins the 9 weeks with 100 conduct points. Students will lose 1 conduct point (each time their card is changed from white to blue, yellow, or red) when rules are not followed.

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