Welcome Eagles to 3rd grade Math!
I am so excited that we are here together! This year we will learn all about ordering & comparing numbers, place value & decimals, rounding & estimating numbers, fractions, 2- & 3-dimensional shapes, measuring the perimeter & area of shapes, telling & calculating time, data & graphs, money, and so much more!
It is important to remember that we will do a lot of learning in the classroom, but continued practice at home is what can make a real difference. Please set aside time to go over your lesson and classwork from each day with your family. Have fun sharing what you've learned!
Practice adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. There are lots of fun games online that can help you practice! Remember, practice makes us better!
It is okay for students to have a snack during class. With that said, every privilege has its parameters. Acceptable snacks are listed below:
All snacks should be carried inside snack sized Ziploc bags. Candy and gum are NOT allowed. Ideally, snacks should not leave residue on hands or materials. Students will be expected to discard their trash in the designated trash bin and keep their desks neat and clean.
A folder will come home every Friday (aka "the Friday Folder") with school announcements, graded work, homework practice sheets, and other items that may need to be signed and returned. Please carefully go through the Friday Folder each weekend and return it each Monday with your child when he/she returns to school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me. In the meantime, let's make it another great year!
