Spelling Lists and Reading Vocab tab has a link for you to visit the Reading web site and find ways to help from home. Including lists we are working on.

Check out the section on MATH Benchmarks and Vocabulary. These are the things that 3rd graders are expected to know to be successful on the assessments as well as prepared for 4th grade.

AR READING: You will all be getting a Parent packet to explain Accelerated Reading. It is so important for your child to be reading at home every night. Each student should have a goal of 1.5-2.0 point to earn each week. I have 2 computers waiting to let them test on every morning. We have time throughout the day too.

BLUE STREAKS PRIDE Tickets will be going out daily. Our first week of school we will be learning what it takes to be Blue Streak Proud! Check your child's bag each Friday to see if they were chosen to receive a certificate! I total up each child's tickets for the week and pick top ticket holders.

I dreamed I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there
The clay they used was a young Child's mind
They fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher: the tools she used were books, activity, music and art.
One a parent with a guiding hand and a gentle loving heart.
Day after day the teacher toiled with touch that was deft and sure.
While the parent labored by her side and polished and smoothed it over with pride.
When at last their task was done, they were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had molded into the child Could neither be sold nor bought.
Each agreed he would have failed If he had worked alone,
For behind the parent stood the school and behind the teacher the home. Author Unknown
