Welcome to the 3rd Grade!

Welcome to my classroom website. This blog gets updated regularly with video tutorials and other resources that will help your child be successful in math class.

Students will take daily review quizzes. Students input their answers to these quizzes via a student response system (clickers). Due to this paperless form of grading, I will not be sending weekly papers home in the Friday folders. It is the student's responsibility to show the parent his/her classwork daily. The student will know which questions s/he got right or wrong. Please review the types of problems that the student is struggling with.

The first set of skills that we will be covering include: place value, reading and writing numbers, rounding, adding, subtracting.

Homework: 

  • Multiples 1-9: Example
  • Parent signature on classwork: Students are required to show review the classwork with a parent and get it signed.
