Week #10: We are beginning Unit 2 concepts, grammar and spelling for Language Arts this week. "Working Together" will be the weekly theme. In Math we will be building 3rd grade concepts in Multiplication. We continue with Chapter 4 lessons 1-4.
Please ensure your child is reading a minimum of 30 minutes each day, this should continue throughout the school year. The de-codable stories are a great start, but I would like to see your student develop more challenging reading material, as the school year progresses.
Remember, the way to become a better reader is to read! Please encourage your child to read at home, and remember, third graders still like to be read too!

attempt--to make an effort to do or accomplish something
