It has been a fresh first start this year. I am looking forward to learning more about the new 3rd graders that I have. I am as well looking forward to interacting with parents and getting some first hand experience with their feel of the 3rd grade as their students embark on a journey that will help them SOAR. Parent envolvement is very important and helps the parents and the teachers connect together for the greater cause. Let's make this the best year yet!

Homework Policy

Dear Parent(s),

We are using these Fluency Passages to help your child develop effective reading skills. Our goals are to help students read and go back in the passage and find their answers. Students are to work on this independently for homework to strengthen their skills.

Reading Passages:

The same story will be read 3 times per evening, Monday-Thursday for homework. Your child’s Homework Log will indicate which story is to be read each week.

  1. A.   Your child will read the 1st time to build accuracy. It should be timed for 1 minute. Count the number of words read correctly and record the words per minute (wpm) in the Home Practice section.
  2. B.   Your child will read the story a 2nd time to practice using punctuation when reading and to develop expression.
  3. C.   Your child will read the story a 3rd time to develop comprehension.
  4. D.   In addition to fluency practice, your child will answer one to two questions per night from the passage. This will help to enhance comprehension and vocabulary development.

We have found these reading folders to be very effective in developing reading skills. By working together, your child will become a successful reader.

Thank you, Ms. Jones
