3rd Grade

blessed trinity catholic school


Dear Third Grade Parents,

We are well into the second quarter of school.

Our first field trip of the year will be Friday. We will be going to the Florida Theatre to see Junie B. Jones. Remember to pack a lunch. We will be eating in the classroom when we get back to school.

The students should continue to read aloud for 15 to 20 minutes every day. They could read from one of their AR books or from a text book.

We began multiplication facts a few weeks ago. The students should be bringing home their multiplication “lap-books” every day, in order to practice their flash cards.

Please be sure you have signed up for the Remind app so you may get more frequent classroom updates.

Students will be required to read and take 3 Accelerated Reader (AR) Tests within his/her assigned reading level range, striving for 80% accuracy, each Quarter. Reading levels will be adjusted throughout the year. New levels can be found in the back of your child’s Planner.

Your child’s Mathletics User Name and Password is located in the back of the Planner. If you haven’t already done so, please download the free Mathletics App on your mobile device. Mathletics can also be accessed using us.mathletics.com/sign-in.
