I can’t believe we are entering into the month of October already! I have seen growth in our third graders and I am proud of their hard work as we learn new routines and expectations and dive into third grade curriculum!
READING and MATH FACT CALENDAR:
You will see a reading/math fact log come home today. As your third grader completes their at-home reading and math fact practice, they will fill out their reading log. A new one will be sent home every Monday and it should be returned the following Monday. Your third grader will sign the five days they did their reading and fact practice. We are using detailed reading logs in class so using an at-home log will support the reading that we are doing at school. Thanks for your help with this!
Math Fact Cards: You will see your child’s yellow fact folder filling up. As your third grader works on their math fact log, please help them choose one set of count bys (one color) flash cards to work on each night. As each color is mastered, move on to the next. We have learned the 5s, 2s, 10s, 9s, 3s, 4s, so far. It is really starting to become apparent which kids are regularly going over their math facts and which kids are not. PLEASE help your child gain confidence with their math work by practicing these at home!
PIZZA HUT READING CALENDAR:
(This is optional, but may be combined with our classroom reading calendar)
Our classroom is participating in the BOOK IT! program again this year to help encourage reading. Your child will be bringing home a Pizza Hut Book It calendar with a reading goal on it beginning October 1. Each time your child reads they may mark it on their calendar. At the end of the month please have them return their calendar to school and they will bring home a coupon attached to it for a FREE personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut. This program runs from October thru March. HAPPY READING!!!
Our class has one snack break in the morning. Please pack your child a healthy snack to support their learning. If your child chooses to have an afternoon snack, please pack an extra so they can eat it during afternoon recess. Thank you!
