Mrs. Linda Melssen Teacher 3rd Grade

We are currently studying How the World Works. Our class has used many activities from the  Mystery Science web site. This is a science web site we subscribe to . It allows children to learn about  our third grade science standards using hands on learning activities. Ask your child to tell you how we have used these resources to learn about shadows, day/night and seasons.

Our class is wrapping up multiplication & division. We have been working on writing and solving two step equation. Your child should continue to work on their 2's, 5's. 10's multiplications & divisions. Students should know 3's,4's 6's,7's,8's and 9's multiplications & divisions by the end of third grade. There are a number of ways to work on this. Students can use their  home math folders that contain all the fact tables. Kids can use Math Magicians. This site is linked on Ms. Canard's page. Your child knows how to get there. Remember a little practice each day goes a long way.

Winter has arrived. Kids are out for 30 minutes. Please make sure your child comes with a hat, mittens/gloves and scarf.  (Snow pants & boots are greatly appreciated too.)

I am pleased to announce we have paired up with Ms. Lewis' first graders reading buddies. Each Friday from 12:30-12:50 kids get together to share a book with each other. We are enjoying these experiences. 

Please feel free to call or email at any time if you have questions or concerns about your child.
