Dear Parents:

In preparation for the GRCT I feel it is important for the students to have
a firm foundation of the various concepts in third grade math. I have
prepared a list of math vocabulary words to be looked up and
memorized. Each night the students are to take five words in succession
from the list. They are to write the meanings four times each, using
their student math textbooks, then show an example of what that
meaning means. Please see an example listed below. This homework
is to be done in their Math Writing notebook and kept together. I
will check the student’s notebooks every Friday. I will also post the
Math Vocabulary words each week in my newsletter as well as, post the
complete list under important documents. I feel this will greatly benefit
the students. It will be a good review and help them feel confident in
taking the GRCT.

I am starting to create GRCT tests for the students to take nightly for
homework. As soon as they are ready, I will list them on the homework.

Thank you for your help!

Josephine Modica
