Welcome to our New School Year!
The 2016 - 2017 school year has begun and we're Boarding for Brentwood in Room 4! Your child has scaled the cliffs of early reading, shot the rapids of adding and subtracting, and mined for gems in the world of writing. In other words, first and second grade are over. What could top all that?
Well, in fact there’s a giant step waiting in third grade. Your children will still read, write, and do math, but the way they do them will start to shift. This year, and increasingly in fourth and fifth grades, kids move from “learning to read” to “reading to learn,” and from “learning to write” to “writing to communicate.”
Your child will be exploring lots of new material. If you have any concerns about your child's progress, don't hesitate to contact me for a conference. Working as a team will insure a year of success for all of our third graders.
