If your house is like ours, family time during the week is limited and precious.  Therefore, I don't want your night to be filled with homework.  I do, however, expect your third grader to read at least 20 minutes and to practice math facts until fluency is reached (fluency = recall from memory).  The goal for the end of the year is for your third grader to be fluent in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts.  


    Daily Reading - at least 20 minutes

    Math Fact Practice - 5 minutes a day (flash cards, Moby Max Fact Fluency, xtramath.com, or any other website that promotes this practice)


    Other suggestions from Mrs. Fagin:

    Play games as a family (My family likes to play games such as Farkle, Quixx, Rummikub, Blokus, Qwirkle, Q-Bitz, Scrabble, and Bananagrams).

    Play games that are linked to our Google Classroom.

    Solve Puzzles (Jigsaw Puzzles, Crosswords, Logic, Sudoku, etc.).
