Expect your third grader to bring home a journal and homework packet each Monday.  Our aim is to select assignments that can be completed independently by the majority of students.  Certainly, if you have the time and inclination, we wholeheartedly encourage your involvement!

In addition to assignments, we require students to:

  • Read for (at least) 20 minutes a night
  • Study spelling words for Fridays test
  • Practice math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)
  • Think like a writer. . . always be on the lookout for writing ideas
  • Complete 2 journal entries each week.  One entry should be a response to their independent reading and one journal entry that correlates to the writing genre we are working on in class (narrative, opinion, or information)

Get a good night’s sleep!
