Third grade has made a smooth transition into the New Year. January was a starting point of truly getting down to business preparing for the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA). These preparations include test taking strategies and reviewing all skills taught throughout the first and second quarters. Math includes working on fractions and understanding how to answer questions thoroughly and critically. Our reading students are currently reading a wide range of genres and paired passages. Paired passages are two separate texts with related topics. Students are learning skills to make connections between the two texts, as well as recognizing similarities and differences. In February, we are looking forward to our third quarter field trip to see a performance titled "Mathemagic." This magic show will incorporate math in a fun and exciting way. Please encourage your child to continue reading a minimum of 20 minutes each day. This will help them reach their Accelerated Reader goal for third quarter. As always, the third grade teachers are very appreciative of our third grade families' undying support.
