            Read for 30 minutes each night

            We are building stamina for 30 minutes through a free write process. Students have a list of topics they can write about, including writing about their reading.

            Blue math packet- due on the last day of each school week
            We are working on basic addition and subtraction strategies, finding patterns, and reading bar graphs and venn diagrams.
            Word Study
            Students are being tested on the first 300 high frequency words for third grade. Word Study spelling will begin the first week of October for most students.
