Third grade is a big transition from second grade and an important milestone for your child. Our curriculum is “meatier” and more will be expected. Students will have more homework than in the past which will result in increased independence and responsibility. Please encourage your child, but don’t do anything for them that they can do for themselves. Please be sure to check out our “Homework” section on our class website for homework expectations and specific suggestions, hints, and homework policies.
As part of our class and team building activities, we are learning how to be “bucket fillers.” Please check the “Bucket Filler” page of our website that explains what a bucket filler is, and ask your child about it. Have YOU filled a bucket today?
This week begins our formal spelling program. A practice test of the weekly spelling list is given each Monday morning. Students who miss only one word or score 100% on the practice test receive a “challenge list” for the week. The final spelling test of the week is given each Friday, and students either test on the regular list or the challenge list, depending on their Monday scores. You should have noticed your child’s practice test come home today, with the appropriate weekly list attached.
“Friday Folders” will begin on Friday, 8/16. These folders will come home each week filled with corrected work, tests, etc. from the previous week, along with a brief progress report. Please go over the contents with your child, sign, and return to school on Monday. Sometimes you may find a page that requires correcting, or in some cases, completing. These should be completed/corrected and returned in the folder on Monday morning. All other work is yours to keep------only those that say “Oops……Correct and Return” need to come back for a second look. The mystery word this week is Bucket Fillers.
As we begin our second week of school, the routine is becoming a little more familiar for most of the children. Hopefully you have established a regular routine at home as well which include daily chores, a regular homework time and an established bedtime. When children have responsibilities and routines they are much more comfortable, confident, and know what to expect. Along with responsibilities come the rewards/consequences for our choices. We have talked at length in class about making good choices and the results that come with both good choices and those that are not. Learning to make proper and appropriate choices requires a cooperative effort between students, parents, and teachers. As we work together, we can ensure that your child comes to a sound and well disciplined learning environment. All children are responsible for their own learning and their own behavior. Rewarding positive behavior helps reduce behavior that may interfere with classroom learning. Good school and classroom discipline, along with student self-discipline is the foundation for success in school.
It’s a pleasure working with your children , and I am looking forward to a great year together!
