Mrs. Chester's Class ~ 3rd grade
A Note for you!
A few things...
Parents and Students:
Thank you so much for working with us during this time. It is out of our control, but God is still in control. The Bible says “and this too shall pass.” We will all get through this! I have tried to get the rest of the year together for you in just a few days. I have tried to make sure you will have everything you need. If you find something is missing or anything you need, please do not hesitate to contact me.
~Each page has a page number, the subject, and the lesson number printed on the bottom of the page.
~We do a lesson number each day in each subject.
~We are on lesson number 146 and end on 170 doing 5 lessons each week.
~It is always helpful to review daily over yesterday’s assignment and/or chapter.
~Review MAPS daily for History (in the back of student book)
~On MEMORY VERSE in Bible: Students have a copy of Hebrews 11 in folder
Read verses aloud several times a day

and put with other papers to be turned in.

Allow only 1 answer and only 3-4 seconds to
-10 each missed
~ MATH Study/Review multiplication and division tables
~ MATH I plan to make videos of the story problems each
day once I get the app going.
MATH On math instruction sheets % means division.
~Reading Book: PILGRIM’S PROGRESS: We are only required to read chapters 1-20
Students can read 1 chapter everyday/
5 chapters a week to finished required reading
To finished book will need to read about 2
chapters a day (8-10 chapters per week)
I have it planned to finish the book.
~On all ORAL READING: Students take turns in class reading on average a paragraph to a page at a time as we move around the room. It is fine for you to take turns with your child at a 2:1 ratio (student 2 paragraphs/pages to your 1). Always ask questions to ensure comprehension. If student reads silently, always ask questions or have a discussion to check comprehension, understanding, and memory. Require student to read aloud most of the time.
~ BOOKWORK: Any pages that have questions to answer in Health and History, I usually have students do on own first, and then go over answers together.
~SPELLING POEMS: Poems are in the back of the spelling book
~STUDENT’S FOLDER: Math handbook and glossary
Measurement “Cheat Sheet”
Languages handbook and glossary
Hebrews 11 Memory verses for Bible
~ We also started on our ANIMAL NOTEBOOK project. That may be a fun project to finish together.
~We do some of our work together, especially new material, so it is okay to work together and help when needed on worksheets --- just not tests or quizzes.
~ I have also included some instructional worksheets. The subject, lesson number, and page numbers will be included on the top of the page.
~If you come across any missing papers please let me know. I can make a copy for you to pick up, send a fax or send a picture of page to you via text or email.
~Turn in finished work to school office at your convenience. I will grade work and return. Please review all graded work with student. Students may need to correct for practice but no need to return to me.
~ I am sorry. This is a lot to have to ask of you. I will be available to answer any of your questions. As soon as I get an app up and running I will contact you. I will also be working on including videos for you and students to view for additional help. If you have any further questions or concerns or even suggestions to help I am open to suggestions. You may contact me through my cell (502-681-8399), school(502-957-2856), my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or soon through an app. Thank you for your patience.
Dear Parents and Students:
I hope things are going well for you and your family. I hope that the Google Classroom app will be a help to you. There are a few things I forgot to mention.
