In reading class the third grade learned about the Oregon Trail.  We learned that it was a long and hard trail but they didn’t give up.  They traveled together in a train. This way they were safer than traveling alone

Congratulations to the Third Grade Class for winning the National Sumdog Math Competition on March 15, 2018.  Throughout the United States, 14,000 students participated in this event.  We are very proud of our students.

 Third grade is working hard on our multiplication and division facts. We are practicing our facts and trying to recall 20 problems in 1 minute. We love math and are looking forward to joining another Sumdog competition! 

We are reading lots of books and taking AR quizzes on them. This helps us with comprehension. 


AAAMATH is a wonderful site for the students to practice their multiplication facts. There is a one minute timer. The students have been practicing on this site. Their high scores for the day are recorded as quiz grades. Please encourage your child to practice this site daily so they can recall their facts quickly. The quicker they recall the basic multiplication facts, the easier fourth grade math will be.


The students took the Star Reading test and are taking AR quizzes. We visit the library every week. All the students check out books. Your child needs to be reading a book and preparing for an AR test. Class time is given for silent reading, however the students are expected to read nightly. This is a reading quiz grade so it needs to be taken seriously. The students should try to score 85% or higher on the AR test.


The students are online with the reading and math series. They have been given user names and passwords. Please encourage them to practice skills on these sites. This is a great way to review. There are explanations for skills and activities to review skills on these sites. I can't stress enough the importance of using these sites.

Here are the websites: Our district is Archdiocese of St. Louis 
also for Math, please use this site for timed scores on basic facts:
