Visit our classroom to play spelling games. 


 Multiplication Strategies


**Remember to practice your addition and subtraction facts at home. As well as telling time! Please remember that your child is NOT graded on their time tests but it is still very important. This is used to measure the progress of their fact fluency.


Check out our math page for helpful videos on math strategies learned in class! It also has a link to websites that we use in class to reinforce concepts.  


At Home Practice: 

Below are resources for additional math practice at home to reinforce concepts learned in class. 

**Keep practicing math addition, subtraction, and MULTIPLICATION facts each week at home. As well as telling time. 



Social Studies:




We have started a quick review packet of printing and that will last another week or two. Students get a handwriting grade in third grade. Please encourage your child to take their time. There will be times that I will ask students to try it again if I can not read it. I remind them if I have to squint to read it then I will get "Granny wrinkles" so please don't make me squint. :)  After that we will begin with cursive handwriting! I know many students are excited to learn cursive!   

Character Counts Word of the Month:





Each day we watch a 1 minute Rusty video. Rusty talks about different things to help create a learning community based on healthy relationships, mutal respect, and high achievement. Take a peek at the website if you want to learn more about


Hello Families,

I wanted to inform you about Character Education that we will be starting this year.  Every month, as a class, we will discuss and learn about a new, positive character trait.  Students will be encouraged to demonstrate these character traits throughout the time we are learning about each one.  At the end of each month, students who have regularly demonstrated or shown growth in the current character trait will be recognized in front of the class, and hopefully Mr. Pribyl, and presented with a certificate.  The character traits we will be focusing on are:

  1. Respect (September)
  2. Empathy (October)
  3. Kindness (November)
  4. Responsibility (December)
  5. Self-Control (January)
  6. Perseverance (February)
  7. Honesty (March)
  8. Courage (April)
  9. Forgiveness (May)

My goal is to encourage students to positively engage with and treat other students and adults in our school.  These character traits will help students become better problem-solvers and build strong relationships with the people in their lives.  If you have any questions, please let me know!

Thank you,

Third Grade Team
