We would like to welcome your child to third grade! We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new school year. The third grade teachers want you to know about some of the interesting subjects that your child will be learning next year.
reading we will work on reading skills and strategies such as
predicting/inferring, questioning, author’s view point, and drawing
conclusions. In language arts, writing will consist of five genres:
narrative writing, report/informational writing, persuasive writing,
functional/procedural writing and a response to literature. Math will take
us on a journey of exploring multiplication, division, fractions,
measurement, and geometry. Through science exploration, your child will be
learning about Earth and space, properties of matter, energy, plants, and
animals. In social studies we will be learning about communities,
citizenship, and ancient civilizations.
This is a very important year for your child because he/she will be taking the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test (FCAT) for the first time. Third graders are tested in the subjects of Reading and Mathematics.
As a third grade student, your child will begin working towards meeting the third grade standard of reading 30 chapter books during the school year. We encourage him/her to begin on this goal by exploring the public library this summer. Books that are read over the summer can count towards meeting the 30 chapter book goal. Remember the chapter books should be “just right” books, not too easy and not too hard.
We look forward to working with you and your child. We hope you and your family have a safe and wonderful summer!
