Third Grade Assignments:
Math - Students will have an enVision Math homework sheet Mon-Thurs. We will be practicing Math Facts in class each day. It would be helpful for students to also practice Math Facts at home. Students will have access to enVision materials & games during the year. I will send an email to let you know when it is ready.
Science/Social Studies - Students will do the majority of their work in class. If there are at-home assignments or projects, they will be sent home in the homework folder. Quizzes on material will be given at the end of each unit.
Reading Street - Students will do their comprehension/vocabulary work in class. We will have a weekly in class assignment on Wednesdays and a quiz on Fridays. Students will have access to Reading Street online during the year. I will send an email to let you know when it is ready.
Independent Reading - Students will have a weekly Reading Log distributed on Fridays and due the following Thursday. Students will need to read independently and summarize their reading 5 days a week. Parents - don't forget to sign the Reading Log each Thursday night! We want to encourage students to read one chapter book at a time, so please remind them to carry it back and forth in their backpack. Students will be taking Accelerated Reader tests online throughout the year to earn points for their weekly reading grade. This will be accessible through school only.
Spelling - The list will be distributed on Mondays. Students select items from the back of the list to do throughout the week to study the words. Our spelling lists will be posted on spellingcity.com for extra spelling practice each week. Students will take a test on Fridays.
Cursive Handwriting - We will be using the Handwriting Without Tears approach to cursive. This work will take place in class and will not be assigned as homework. Please feel free to encourage your child to practice at home!
Writing Workshop - Students will maintain a writer's notebook in class. We will be doing our writing, sharing, and publishing during class.
