3rd Grade - Mrs. Melissa Brown
Instructor: Mrs. Melissa Brown
Welcome to the 2019-2020 Third Grade School Year!!!
I hope that you are getting excited about starting not only a new grade level, but also being in a new building!!! I am looking forward to getting to know you and you getting to know me. There are 5 members in our family: my husband, 2 sons, (1 son who is a 3rd Grade teacher [ a.k.a Mr. Brown] and and another son who is studying to be a music teacher), and 1 dog. You will here more about them during the school year.
I am NOT originally from Missouri. I was born in the state of North Dakota. It is a state way up on the border of the United States and Canada. The temperatures can be 100 degrees in the summer, (like here) but can get to 40 degrees below zero in the winter. I hope to share my stories of growing up with lots and lots of snow, while you tell me about growing up in the Ozarks.
I will see you soon!
Class Motto: Together Everyone Achieves More
Mrs. M. Brown's Third Grade News
Agenda Each night, your child should be bringing home their agenda. What they have written down are things that we have worked on in class during the day. PLEASE make sure to sign the agenda daily for your child. Also if you need to write a note for me, this a great place for you to communicate with me. Homework (Practice Time) In 3rd grade, we work on keeping homework to about 30 minutes a day which may include: work that was not completed in class, (Math pages to be returned the next day.) practicing Math facts (+, -, x, ÷), spelling words, and reading for 20 minutes (students will track this on their Reading Log that is in their agenda binder)…

In our class this year, we will have a weekly Spelling list. (unless the week is 3 days or less) Each week there will be between 16 to 20 words to practice. (Lists will grow as the year moves on.)The word list each week will consist of what we call High Frequency Words. These are words that 3rd graders use daily to read and write. (Examples: there, their, they're, because, never). When a list comes home, please help your child practice these words. You can have them write them, spell them out loud, type them in a computer, find the word in a book, point the word out on a billboard, spell them in whipping cream on the counter, write them with chalk on the driveway. (Just a few fun ways to learn the words.)Along with a Word List, we will also be working on phonics skills. (Letter sounds, letter patterns, ect.) Towards the end of the week a page will come home that you can help your child with. It is a way for you to work with them and enjoy a little time together. (Watch out, they may figure it out before you do. )Thank you for working with your…
