Third graders are expected to read at least 20 minutes daily. This can be independently, with a parent/family member, on audio book, etc. When a reading log is assigned, please help your child to fill out the worksheet. Students turn these in on Monday mornings and at that time, will receive a new reading log for the week.
The students will be completing Simple Solutions lessons on Tuesdays and Thursdays while we will utilize Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for Rocket Math. Incomplete Simple Solutions lessons from morning work and math class will go home as homework. I kindly ask that you help your child and remind them 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. In third grade we begin with two addition and subtraction Rocket Math rounds in order to review those skills. Once individual goals have been reached, students will move onto multiplication rounds.
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
- Use of old Rocket Math worksheets (will be sent home weekly)
In third grade, we continue to build on handwriting/cursive skills that were developed in second grade. A page of handwriting is a part of daily morning work. As this is such a crucial skill in third grade, students will be required to take this assignment home for homework if it is not completed in the morning or during the day. We will gradually integrate our handwriting/cursive skills into our work come winter.
When religion quizzes are approaching, students are encouraged to access the “Finding God” website and complete the given “Interactive 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.
