What a wonderful week we had filled with so much learning!



Our classroom homework will be given out in a packet every Monday. Students will turn in the completed packet following Monday.


  1. Spelling Words (Test this week on Friday, October 12th)
  2. Reading Log (Parent signature required)
  3. Math Log (Parent signature required)
  4. Math Review Sheets
  5. Assignment Notebook (During this first trimester, you will see that your child may not have nightly homework, I still encourage you to sign their assignment notebook. This routine will contribute to their success later in fourth grade when they are getting nightly homework, and need a parent signature.)


Homework is due: October 15th


*It is imperative that your child have their multiplication and division facts 0-10 mastered if they do not already. Nearly everything that we will be learning in math this year is built on those multiplication and division facts. We will be practicing the math facts in class; however, your child needs to practice at home as well. Please let me know if you feel like you need additional resources for your child to practice at home.


Another Scholastic book order went home this week. It is due on Friday, October 26th (checks only, no cash please). You can pay by credit card online at with our class code TT3F3


Please collect “Box Tops for Education” for our school. They are the little Box Top labels found on certain food items and products. These labels earn cash for our school. Thank you!


*If there are any questions or concerns, please email me at Email is the best way to contact me to set up a meeting or to ask any questions!
