Let's "SPARKLE" in 3rd Grade!

October 11-19, 2021


Students may bring a "collection" to school a day this week.
Students should know where to find their favorite Bible verse. We will be typing them in computer class on Friday. 


Friday: Western/Crazy Day... Start planning your hair/clothing.
Students may bring a small amount of candy to eat during the day.


Please note that there will be a Bible test on Monday, October 18, and a phonics test on Tuesday, October 19. I don't usually plan tests on these days, but with the Teachers' Convention break, it is necessary. The review sheets will go home with students toward the end of this week. 


Water Bottles: The drinking fountains are running again this year, however I highly recommend still using water bottles. We have had several sick students already this year, so not using the drinking fountain is a good idea. 


Practice for a timed multiplication or division test every night at home. Students will continue through the tests as they quickly as they memorize the facts. 

Flashcards: Keep all math flashcards at home. These are to be used to help students memorize the multiplication and division facts.

1st: multiply by 5/divide by 5

2nd: multiply by 2/divide by 2

3rd: multiply by 10/divide by 10

4th: multiply by 9/divide by 9

5th: multiply by 3/divide by 3

6th: multiply by 4/divide by 4

7th: multiply by 0

8th: multiply by 1/divide by 1

9th: multiply by 6/divide by 6

10th: multiply by 7/divide by 7

11th: multiply by 8/divide by 8

12th: multiply/divide square numbers

***Timed tests are 3 minutes, and the goal is to correctly answer 60 multiplication problems. The division tests only have 50 problems. If your child has a fact memorized and wants to be tested, he or she may ask me. We spend some time in test practicing facts, but students will also need to practice at home. 


Check your student's orange homework folder.

If there is homework in it, it is due in the next morning.
The homework folder should be at school every day.

Please notify me by a note if your child has alternate plans at the end of the day. 
Please call the office if you have a child that is sick. I do not always have time to check my email or texts throughout the day. I will reply to any text or email I receive. If I haven't replied, please assume I have not read it.
