In third grade we like to practice the Shaffer ROCKS rules. We try to always be Respectful, On Task, Cooperative, Kind, and Safe.
Third grade is an exciting year full of learning. Students will be expanding their skills in reading and really focusing on comprehension. They will be writing creative narratives, engaging informational essays, and educated opinion pieces. In math, students will develop various methods to multiply and divide numbers through 12 and become more understanding of fractions among other things. We will learn about life, physical, and earth science. In third grade, we also learn about our local history and government.
Homework: Please expect your child to bring home a homework folder every Monday. Homework folders are due on Friday. In your child’s homework folder you will find: daily math homework, spelling word list, vocabulary word list, reading logs, book report assignments (due monthly), and family time assignments (due monthly).
Please feel free to contact me anytime and don’t hesitate to come visit us in the classroom!
