We continue in the Everyday Mathematics program. The third grade curriculum builds upon the structure established last year and spirals to create critical math thinkers. Two common areas that challenge 3rd graders are concepts of time (telling and elapsed) and money (making change). CB is advocating practice of math facts using a website, Xtramath.org. We will be assigning weekly practice of at least 10 minutes. Please make every effort to support your child by giving him/her weekly time on this website.
We stress the acquisition and practice of addition, subtraction, multiplication AND division facts for quick recall, and we appreciate your at home support with these concepts.
