Welcome to third grade Math. This year will be very different for your son or daughter. My teaching philosophy calls for all students to be challenged regardless of their development, so be prepared to think. This is the first year students will receive a text book, so please discuss this with them. Furthermore, this is the first year your child will be switching classes so it is very important to discuss organization and planning with your child. Your child will also have to use the online component of math series. This year students will take the state tests online so having them use this technology ahead of time is very important. Note: the LOG IN information is on top of this page!!!!
I encourage you to make your child use numbers whenever possible. Research has shown that learning is most effective using real life situations, so make sure your child is aware of numbers in their world. All throughout the year students should tell time whenever possible, and calculate daily math as an everyday part of their lives. My classroom teaching style incorporates math, reading, and writing that is real life to them, hopefully causing them to retain key information and never loose it. You will also be required to sign up @ Class Dojo. This will serve as a great tool to keep in touch. Details to follow
