To Our 2019-20 Third Grade families,


     This school year brought unprecedented challenges but  we continued to work together to extend our learning while staying safe and healthy.

As we reflect back, we realize:

We can teach you in a room.
We can teach you now on zoom.
We can teach you in your house.
We can teach you with a mouse.
We can teach you here and there.
And we always will because we care.
We know you did your very best.
Enjoy your summer and take a rest.

Enjoy your summer clipart
With love and gratitude for all your effort and support,
Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Fiorio, Mrs. Pettigrew, and Ms. Thomas

Through the myOn NEWS tab there are nonfiction articles on varied topics as well as current events.

Any of the movies in the category of Reading and Writing are appropriate to practice 3rd grade skills. 

Other sites to support reading and writing:
Storyline online has a variety of stories read aloud

Istation - each student in the 3rd grade has an account with Istation. The lessons and activities are individualized to each individual student. If you need assistance with login information for Istation please contact your student's language arts teacher.

My most important activity you can do this summer to support your reading skills is READ!! Please read everyday for a minimum of 20 minutes. It will make a huge difference.
