Welcome to Mrs. Molloy's
Third Grade Class
Our Daily Schedule:
This week in Reading, we will be working on fact and opinion. Our grammar skill this week is possessive pronouns. We will also be working on context clues to help with unfamiliar words. Our spelling words deal with prefixes and can be found on Spelling City Unit 4 Week 3 - Rocks in His Head
There is a fun website where the students can read challenging sight words words at their own pace. Again the link is located under Links for Learning.
Everyone has new goals and reading levels. Please remember that it it important that students are reading nightly and testing accordingly. It is super important that students read NIGHTLY! I encourage them to test first thing in the morning instead of waiting for AR time in the afternoon.
I will conference with the student about their pacing/scores daily. I will advise them if they need to read more books, if they need to read lower levels due to some lower test scores, etc..
There is a web site located under Links for Learning where your child could practice AR.
If you have not already signed up for AR Homeconnect, please do so. It is a great way to get updates on your child's progress. Again the link is under Links for Learning.https://hosted104.renlearn.com/736819/HomeConnect/

PLEASE have your child bring a water bottle to school as it is very hot outside during PE time. Plus, I suggest a jacket or sweater to keep at school as the room sometimes gets cool.
Whisper the answer to this question in my ear for a treat - What is a order of operations in solving a math problem with multiple operations?
