Welcome to Third Grade!

HELLO!
My name is Jessica Benson and I am SO excited to be teaching at Brownsboro Elementary this year!
 
Third grade is a FUN year for students! We're learning about fractions, the water cycle, cursive, homonyms, and much more! Your student will come home with stories about their day, and I encourage you to listen and ask questions. I'm a firm believer in letting the students be the teachers.
 
HOMEWORK
Your student will generally not have homework assigned to them. I believe it's important for students to have a break from their school day and spend quality time with their families. They will take home a book to read nightly. Once done with the book, they'll fill out a book review at school. Once they've completed 3 book reviews, they will submit their review page in exchange for a pink ticket.
