Language Arts: Word Study
  • Students select 5 words from a list of “High Frequency” words that they didn’t know on the pretest this fall.
  • Students will be practicing a feature skill each week.
  • The goal is to teach students about words and how they relate; students learn patterns for a lifetime, not a list for a week.
  • There will be a quick quiz every Friday in place of traditional Spelling test.
  • Word Study homework will be given on Monday and is due on Friday.
  • Students will have blue math homework almost every night.
  • Students will be pre-tested on each chapter.
  • Typical math lesson:

whole group lesson, try sample problems as a class and then individual or small group work.

  • Big focus in 3rd grade is mastering multiplication facts.
  • Please review addition and subtraction facts at home.
