Hello Parents!

We are off and running this school year. The children are very busy working on their writing skills, memorizing their multiplication facts, and increasing their reading comprehension skills. They should be reading their library books every night, and writing a summary of each book they read.

Please register for Remind if you have not already done so. I will be sending home messages through this program. If you have not received the instructions that I sent home, please let me know. I will send them again.

Please check your child's homework grid each night and look over their homework to make sure it is done correctly. You don't have to check every problem. I just want to make sure they are on the right track. Thanks for your support.

Have a great Halloween!
Welcome Back!
Welcome back to the 2017-18 school year! I look forward to working with you and your child this year. Please make sure your child comes to school prepared every day. He/She will need 3 sharpened pencils, the completed homework and homework folder, and his/her bookbag. I will speak to you more about components of our third grade program at our school's Open House. I look forward to seeing you there!
Happy New Year!
Welcome to 2016! Now that we are back to school, things are moving along quickly. We are preparing to take the Renaissance test during the week of January 11. This will help to drive instruction for the next few months. Renaissance is a valuable tool that provides a large amount of information to help guide teachers in the direction that the children need to go.

If you have not yet signed up for the Remind app, please do so as soon as possible. That is my primary source for communicating with parents. Please register so you can stay informed.

If your child does not have the multiplication facts memorized, this needs to be done right away. We have moved on to fractions and will do geometry soon. The children need to be able to multiply and divide in order to move forward in the curriculum.

Ms. Clerkin is working with the third and fourth grades on a research project. This will begin this month and will continue for several months. Please look for the materials when they come home. A paper will need to be signed so that we know you are aware of this assignment.

We will be holding conferences school-wide on Monday, Jan. 11 from 3:15 to 4:30 and on Wednesday, Jan. 13 from 1:45 to 4:00. Please come in to see me to discuss your child's progress. The mid-term reports were sent home on January 5. Please review these and prepare to discuss any of your concerns.

Thank you for your support this school year. The Carver family has been through a lot and your support and concern has been a comfort to all of us. I especially appreciate it. Hope to see you next week.

Moving Along!
The first marking period has ended and you can expect the report cards to come home with your child right before Thanksgiving. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me so we can schedule a conference.

The children have been busy getting used to the rigor of the third grade curriculum. In Reading, we have been concentrating on making connections between texts using fiction and nonfiction selections. This is a skill that the children must master before the PARCC is given in March. In Writing, we have learned to write narratives and are nearing the end of the unit on informational writing. The writing samples are getting better every day. Please look over your child's work to be sure they are using their best writing skills. Math has moved on from second grade review to the multiplication lessons in our curriculum. The children must have memorized their multiplication facts in order to work through these units. We center our lessons on solving problems with those facts, rather than memorizing them.

Thank you for all your support in the first marking period. I hope your child is having a positive experience in third grade.

Fall Fun!
Our Fall Fun activities were a huge success! The children loved the costume parade and ate treats until their bellies hurt. What a wonderful time!
Fall is Flying By!
I can't believe it is already the end of October! The new school year is really flying by. I am enjoying getting to know your children and they are working hard to impress me. I love that!

In Math, we have finished our review unit of number sense and our unit about graphs and tables. We are now onto multiplication and division. There is no easy way for your child to learn these facts except for memorization and drilling. Please keep working with them.

The children, although all on different levels, have been reading many books already and seem to be enjoying them. Please encourage your child to read the Carver library books at home and write responses about each one. Ms. Clerkin will read these and then will pass them on to me so I can give the children credit toward the 30 Book Campaign.

Please call me if you have any questions about anything going on in school. I want to do everything I can to make your child's education production and enjoyable at the same time. Happy Fall!
