3rd Grade Team Page

Welcome to 3rd Grade

We are all excited for another great year, and we are lucky to share it with you! We look forward to giving our students opportunities to explore their interests and passions, practice great thinking, and help them and their peers become a team. Kloefkorn is a beautiful school and we look forward to helping build the traditions that will last for years.    If you ever have questions or concerns, please give your child’s teacher a phone call or send them an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.  We look forward to having a wonderful school year!

 

B.I.S.T.

At Kloefkorn, students  will be working on three life goals.

1.  I can take good care of myself, even if I am mad.

2.  I can be productive and follow directions even if I don’t want to.

3.  I can be okay, even when others are not okay.

It is never okay to be disruptive or hurtful!

Homework

Math: Students will usually have two sides of a worksheet for homework.  The homework side (HW) is practice of the lesson students learned that day.  The remembering side (RE) gives students a chance to revisit concepts learned in previous lessons.  We encourage you to help your students “dig deep” in their mathematical thinking.  Ask your child questions.  Some suggestions to help you get started  are “why?” “can you explain?” and “how do you know?”

Spelling: Student are given a new spelling list each week on Monday. It it their responsibility to practice and be ready to take their post test on Friday.
