Welcome to 3rd Grade and the 2018-2019 school year! Please use this website to keep up with the latest updates in our classroom. On this web page you will find a weekly schedule and a general outline for instruction. Please keep in mind that instruction & homework may vary or change throughout the week based on the student's needs and understanding. I look forward to a great year!!
*Below under cool links titled "2020-2021 School Year Student Placement Recommendations" is where you can click and fill out a survey on what type of placement you think would be best for your child for next year. I highly encourage you to fill this out if you feel that your child needs to be placed in a particular type of classroom/structure or you feel that he/she should not be placed with a peer that they have had conflict with that would cause them to not be successful in their learning environment.

Students brought home the novel, Ramona Quimby, age 8. They can work on the activity packet & journal that was sent home on Tuesday, March 17th.
Here are some websites we use in class that students can do at home. These websites include both fiction & nonfiction passages. I hope everyone enjoys reading Ramona Quimby, age 8. It's such a cute book. Activities were sent home that go along with this novel.

Additional Resources: Scholastic is offering a Learn at Home website. This free resource provides your children with 20* days of exciting articles and stories, videos, and fun learning challenges. Children can complete them anytime, in any order. They can work on their own or together with you and your family.
I sent home their cursive packets that we have been working on throughout the year. Please practice your the uppercase letters. Also, complete pages that you haven't completed.
The next word we are going to explore is "formation." Have the students try and create a word sum for the word and add as many words on their matrix as they can from the base. Then, explore on etymology.com to see the history of the words that you found and to see if they are related! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
