Third Grade Weekly Update


This week we will be taking our STAR Tests in Math and Language Arts.  Please be sure your child is well-rested and has a healthy breakfast on Monday and Tuesday.

We will continue to take our fact tests this week.  Students will begin taking addition fact tests Monday through Thursday each week.  They must correctly complete 40 problems in 2 minutes.  Throughout the year, students will work through addition facts +1 through +10, subtraction facts -1 through -10, multiplication 1-10, and finally, division.  You can help your child increase their speed and accuracy by reviewing these facts at home.

Thank you for your continued support!
