Parent Teacher Conferences

Parents,

A letter regarding parent-teacher conferences went home with your child on Thursday, November 2. Please fill out times that can work for you and I will try my best to accommodate your choices. If you cannot meet on that date, we can set up a phone conference at your convenience.

Benchmarks

Math Benchmark- Wednesday, October 18th

Please review the following skills with your child at home in order to prepare for their upcoming test:

  1. Place Value, Rounding, and Comparing Numbers
  2. Estimation (addition and subtraction)
  3. Word Problems (addition and subtraction)
  4. Multiplication Facts
  5. Properties (identity and commutative)

Reading Benchmark- Thursday, October 26th. We will begin our review this week. Please focus on the skills (SOLs) listed below.

  • Decoding multisyllabic words
  • Identifying main idea and supporting details of fiction and non-fiction books
  • Context clues
  • Text features
  • Asking/answering questions with fiction and non-fiction books

There are many ways to help your child become a better reader. First, encourage your child to meet their AR goal each nine weeks. Second, ensure they are completing their homework by reading 20 minutes every night. Third, check their reading log every other week to ensure it is complete. Last, read with your child and ask him/her questions about what is being read. Comprehension is extremely important in 3rd grade. Happy reading!
