Mrs. Linda Melssen Teacher 3rd Grade
Learning Experiences

Dear Third Grade Families !

It was wonderful to meet with so many families at conferences.  Our students have been working hard on our rituals and routines. Students are now meeting in Guided Reading groups and Math Intervention Groups. They have also been working on the Think Central math page and listening to on line books from the Benchmark site.  I am so proud of their growth since school started.


We have a reading volunteer that comes each Wednesday.  Mr. Fuller has been a volunteer at  Bancroft for 20 years. He is currently reading The Twits. Please ask your student what they are enjoying about this book.
