3rd Grade

Welcome to 3rd Grade with Mrs. Waller


Happy February!! This is going to be a very fast and short month.  We are going to try to accomplish as much as we can in our 15 school days of February.  We will be reading some fun stories in class with our reading program and continue to read the chapter book Muggie Maggie. We are really focusing on comprehension, providing evidence in our answers, looking back to find the answers, and answering in complete sentences.  Please practice this at home.  We are still working on our writing skills and will be working on adding detail to our writing and trying to make our writing vivid. In math we are moving on to division.  ALL MULTIPLICATION FACTS SHOULD BE MEMORIZED!

We can use some more index cards, post it notes and children scissors in the classroom if anyone has any extra they would like to donate.

 Please encourage your child to write in script when you can.  We will be writing every morning in script in class.  Please remember that all children must be in full uniform each day.  All shirts should be tucked in, black school shoes worn, ties and belts for the boys.  We also will be going outside during recess daily so proper winter coats and hats should be brought in daily.

Encourage your child to use reading strategies such as prediction, visualizing, and making connections to their own experience to help him or her with their reading.
