I'm so glad to have your child in 3rd grade this year. We will be busy learning new things & I hope to make it fun.
Reading to learn & find information is a big step this year. In the past, reading has been mostly for pleasure. It's a big change, but with practice they can do it.
Also, multiplication is the #1 predictor for success in Math. We work on it all year long & then we use what we've learned to turn it into division.
Science & Social Studies are new subjects that I think the class will enjoy.
Please keep in contact with me as concerns arise. I look forward to working with you to make this year a success for your child.
