Homework

Your third grade student should be spending 20-30 minutes a night reading his or her book.  Each child has been given this book bag to hold a book or two and the homework folder. This bag is brought home each day, and returned to class the following morning.

 

Additional homework may include math games as they are introduced and practiced in class. These games remain at home and can be played as much as possible. Also, every week we will reflect on our reading using Google Classroom. Thanks for your support in making the home-school connection a positive one!

Scott Turner

Welcome Students and Parents!

         Welcome back to school BVE Bobcats! I hope you had a great summer. My name is Mr. Turner and I will be your third grade teacher.  As a third grader in Room 23, you will begin an exciting journey!  You will be learning multiplication and division, cursive, new vocabulary, science and geography, and that’s just for starters! We will also be reading great books and stories in third grade. I am looking forward to a wonderful year and I am pleased you are in my class.  Third grade is a fantastic year where we will explore many new ideas while building on the skills that are familiar.

 

         I will see everyone on the first day of school.  I hope to see all of the parents for Back to School Night on Thursday, August 15th at 7:15 PM.  Please bring your calendars and checkbooks so that conference sign-ups can be completed and classroom coordinators can do their job smoothly.  I look forward to meeting everyone. Thank you and see you soon!
