As you should know, third graders in Indiana are expected to pass the IREAD3 test before being promoted to fourth grade. Emphasis and instructional support this year will be focused on achieving and exceeding the minimum state expectations in reading. The IREAD3 test will be administered in March. Your child will attend mandatory summer school and/or be retained if he/she does not pass. PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILD IS READING AND ANSWERING A PROMPT AT LEAST 20 MINUTES EACH EVENING! I look forward to having a positive and successful year with your child! Our students will also be taking a new state-mandated test in late spring called ILEARN. This test replaces ISTEP+.
We begin our math curriculum with multiplication. Your child will have multiplication/divistion flashcards to practice with at home. Please have your child do this for 10 minutes each evening. The facts 0-12 need to be mastered. Also, your child will have a daily math spiral review for homework each evening.
