• We will be using the McGraw Hill Reading series as one of our tools in reading.  I am very excited to share this program, and all it has to offer, with you and your child.  In Math 3rd grade focuses a lot on multiplication.  Please practice basic multiplication facts with your child.  Flashcards are fabulous tools!  Practice makes perfect!  We will begin the year with Social Studies focusing on Geography.  Please talk with your child about where they live, from the Earth, to the hemisphere, to the continent, and continue all the way down to their town and exact address.  We are using a new series in Science this year called HMH Science Dimensions.  This series is sure to be hands on and exciting!
