3rd Grade

Welcome to 3rd Grade with Mrs. Waller


Wow!!  I can’t believe the school year is just about over.  This year has truly flown past and has been wonderful.  The growth that I have seen in all of your children is unbelievable and it is only because of your support.  There is no way they would have succeeded so much without everything you help them with!!! 

We only have a few more days of school but we are going to continue working till the very end. (some fun things will happen in there too)  We will have our last spelling test this Friday and a Chapter 9 Social Studies test next Wednesday.  Study guides and text books went home today.  Please send text books back for Thursday and Friday and then they can be kept at home.  All books and supplies will start to come home next week.

In math we are going back to fractions.  After looking at their tests( I am not counting them in their grades) I feel we need more practice! We will be working a lot in class on fractions and please practice at home.  The children seem to be able to identify the fractions and compare and order them but are having trouble with the word problem type questions.  We will do a small assessment on Castle Learning again next week in class on Fractions.

Next Friday we will have a small end of the year celebration in the afternoon.  If you would like to send in juice, water , Italian ices, or Oreo cookies please send me an email.  We will enjoy our treat and relax watching a movie or by going outside to play.





 Please encourage your child to write in script when you can.

Encourage your child to use reading strategies such as prediction, visualizing, and making connections to their own experience to help him or her with their reading.
