Daily Homework


Third graders should be reading at least 20 minutes per night (including weekends).  This can be independently, with a parent/family member, on audio book, etc.  When a reading log is assigned, please help your child fill out the worksheet.  Students will have week to complete a reading log.  One box should be completed daily.

Please remind students that practicing fact fluency is a daily assignment– even if it is orally practicing a few problems in the car while driving to soccer practice.  *Rocket Math sheets can be used to practice fact fluency.

If you are looking for ways to practice fact fluency, I recommend the following strategies:

  • Rocket Math app
  • Math Cards app
  • Oral practice
  • Flash cards
  • IXL or Xtra Math
  • Dad’s Worksheets for Rocket Math: Rocket Math Practice Sheets


When religion quizzes are approaching, students are encouraged to access the “Finding God” website and complete the given “Interactive Review Game”. I offer all students who complete these games during quiz week an extra credit point on the open-book assessment.  If completing the game, please be sure that my email is entered so that I can receive confirmation of completion. Should you ever experience issues with email input, please feel free to send me an email, note, or screenshot of the activity.

***Please be sure to check your child’s assignment notebook daily. They will write down their homework assignments each morning upon arrival.
