3rd Grade - Spencer Pointe
As we get into our routine, you should see schoolwork papers come home in your child's folder throughout the week.
Math Home Links will be assigned most nights Monday through Thursday. Math Home Links should be a 5-10 minute review of the skills we have learned and practiced in class. Home Link workbooks will be kept at home. Please have your child complete the assigned Home Link and return it to school the following day. Should you have any questions about what the answer should be, please reference the Unit Family Letter in their Home Link workbook at the beginning of each unit. The answers to the Home Links can be found on the last page.
A Refrigerator Copy for ELA will be sent home on Fridays. Please use this as a reference for our weekly skills, spelling words, and stories that we will be working on the following week. We will be practicing spelling words in class throughout the week. We encourage students to practice spelling words and read each night. Students will be assessed on their spelling words on most Fridays.
In our classroom, we use CHAMPS and a clip chart system. All students have the opportunity to move up the clip chart for making great choices and can also move down the clip chart for making choices that do not follow our school and classroom rules.
Birthday Treats and Parties:
Birthdays will be celebrated at school and in our classroom. Summer birthdays will be celebrated in our classroom in May. District Policy does not allow treats to be sent to school for a child's birthday.
There is also a policy regarding invitations to an individual child's party and gifts in the Parent/Student Handbook. It states, "Party invitations or gifts for classmates should not be brought to school to be distributed. Items such as these are of a personal nature and should be distributed outside of school. The office is unable to release addresses or phone numbers."
Thanks for your help with this matter!
Please notify the office by 3pm if there are any changes in the way your child will be going home from school on any day. Without verbal instruction from you by 3pm, your child will go home the usual way. You may also send in a note with your child or send me an email in the morning regarding a transportation change.
