Welcome to 3rd Grade! This will be a very exciting year.
3rd grade is full of amazing learning. Our goal is that by the end of the year, the students have mastered multiplication fluency through 10s. We will also spend a little time reviewing addition and subtraction with larger numbers. It is always a good idea to review the addition and subtraction facts at home because they lead very well into multiplication and division. Toward the end of the year, we touch on fractions, graphing, and shapes.
For reading, we will continue to learn how to read. We will focus on strategies for breaking down unknown words, building fluency, and utilizing thinking skills to apply to comprehension of what we have read. We spend some time with fictional reading, but a large chunk of our time is spent working with non-fiction. When it comes time to read independently, the students are free to choose what they would like. I would encourage you to have your student switch up their genre when reading at home every once in a while.
