3rd Grade

Welcome to 3rd Grade with Mrs. Waller

Happy February!! This is going to be a very fast and short month.  We are going to try to accomplish as much as we can in our 15 school days of February.  We will be reading some fun stories in class with our reading program and continue to read the chapter book Muggie Maggie. We are really focusing on comprehension and looking back to find the answers.  Please practice this at home. In math we are moving on to division.  ALL MULTIPLICATION FACTS SHOULD BE MEMORIZED!

Please remind your son or daughter about appropriate behavior in the classroom, recess time, and at Mass.  Sometimes it can be hard for them to remember. We can use some more index cards, post it notes and children scissors in the classroom if anyone has any extra they would like to donate.


We will have snack everyday in class.  Please send in a healthy peanut/tree but free snack and extra drink for your son or daughter to enjoy.

Classroom wishlist: ( These are some items we can always use in the classroom if you have any extra that you can donate throughout the year)  
                                 Thank you!!!!

  Just a few housekeeping items:

If your son or daughter are absent from school an absent note MUST be sent in upon returning to school to excuse the absence.
No nail polish may be worn and all shirts must be tucked in. ( I know this is hard for the little ones)
