Greetings!

August 30, 2018 

Dear Third Grade Students and Parents/Guardians,

Thank you for taking the time to visit Ridgely's 2018-2019 Open House last night. Hard to believe our first two weeks of school will be completed tomorrow! We have been occupied with beginning of the year assessments, routines, and procedures.

Our first topic in math is progressing well, as we learn about multiplication—including skip counting, number lines, and arrays. We began reading The BFG, focusing on the essential elements of a story. Building stamina, reading within reach books, and recording on our reading logs during conferring has been part of our reading workshop model. Crafting true stories is our focus with narrative writing, implementing our writing workshop model. 

As Mr. Gilmore directs us each morning, we are making each day a productive day!

Educationally, Mrs. Rahman :-)
