Third Grade Math Skills


  • I have placed a list of Third Grade Math Skills in Communication Folders.

Communication Folder


Grades are sent home in the purple communication folder each Friday. Please sign the folder for that Friday’s date to indicate you have seen your child’s grades and other papers. The folder will go home every day with classwork and various papers, but you need only sign it at the end of the school day on Fridays.



Field Trips

(Students Only)


August 28th- Lady Liberty Celebration in Guntersville

August 29th- Visit Columbus ships in Guntersville.









I do not send home written homework, but I do ask that students devote a few minutes after school looking over any math papers I send home and practicing basic facts (especially when we begin multiplication).Students also need to practice spelling words and read AR (or a book from home) 15 minutes every night.





Math Weekly Tests


Students have a timed test each Thursday and a Weekly Review test each Friday.


Basic Facts Test: It is important for students to know their basic facts without counting on their fingers. We will be testing on the basic addition and subtraction facts during August. In September we will begin testing on multiplication facts that we have practiced in class. More information on multiplication facts will be sent homein September.


Weekly Review Test:

This test will be on skills we have covered during the week.To help your child prepare for this test, look over papers that come home such as Drops in the Bucket and Weekly pages.



Math Chapter Test


We complete a Chapter Review a few days before each chapter test. Please check your child’s folder each night for these pages. I will send a Remind text when a Chapter Test is coming up.




Reading, Spelling and Language Tests


At this time we will have spelling, reading,and language arts tests on Wednesday. I may have to change the day at some point. A reading newsletter will be sent home with a list of spelling words, language skills, and test date for each lesson.
