Watch this video about the importance of struggle in all areas

We'll start the year learning about how to gain grit and a growth mindset which can positively effect all areas of life. Click on this link for a great TED talk about grit and growth mindset.


Want to know more about what we'll be doing in math?

Students learn so much more if we allow them time and space to investigate how numbers work and that encouraging visualizing as a way to understand numbers more fully.  Click here to read a great article about math visualization from Jo Boaler and youcubed.

Third Grade Homework

~~Each night your child should be reading for an appropriate amount of time. Typically we are expecting 20 -30 minutes but this amount of time depends on your child. Each child will be given a book bag to hold a book or two for each night's reading. This bag needs to be brought home and back to school each day. Each week, students will be expected to answer a reflective question on Google Classroom that is related to their reading and our in-class strategies.

~~Math games are sent home as the games are introduced in school and should be played as much as possible at home. In addition, 3rd graders will log into their Reflex math account to practice math facts at least 3 times per week. In addition, there are a variety of other web resources on the classroom web page.
