1. Xtra Math - Third grade mathematicians should log in and practice on Xtra Math at least 3-4 times each week. Please note, this is in addition to the time they spend on Xtra Math at school. If you have not enrolled your child in Xtra Math using the letter I sent home, please do so as soon as possible. If the letter was misplaced, let me know and I'll send home another.
2. Math packet - I sent home the first math packet today. Third grade mathematicians are expected to choose at least 4 sides to complete. Please note, the first side of this week's packet is actually not a sheet to complete. It's a "cheat sheet" to teach parents how we learned to solve problems on a number line. Children were asked to put their name on the front page of the packet.
Children can pass in their packet as soon as their assignment is completed. However, the packet should be completed and turned in by Friday.
***Due to the holiday that begins Wednesday evening, I talked to the children about managing their time this week. If they plan carefully, they should be able to complete their homework before the holiday begins. However, if they are unable to complete their homework before the holiday, I will accept homework the following Monday. I do not expect any child to work on homework during Rosh Hashanah.
Spelling City and the Reading Log have not yet been assigned. The children are not responsible for them at home at this time. I would like them to practice both at school for a little longer. I will let you know when this changes.
