Mrs. A. Hightower
Hello parents and students! I am Mrs. Hightower, your child's Third Grade Math and Science Teacher. This is my 11th year teaching third grade and I know this year is going to be very exciting. We are going to be learning multiplication, division, shapes, patterns, fractions, time, measurement and how to solve word problems using these skills. This will be your child's first year taking the EOG's. This test will be taken in May of this year and will determine if your child will pass the third grade.
In Science we will learn about the Human Body, Earth and Space, Motion and we will also relate Science to our Math Lessons. Your child will also do his/her own Science Project in February. Keep an eye out for the that information.
Every student is expected to read their AR Books and do homework every night. Homework will be written down daily in their planners. Please sign this planner every night. You may also use the planner to write notes that you need for me to see. Your child may also do the program IReady at home. This program will help your child on his/her level. Go to www.clever.com/in/vanceco and have your child log in. If you have any other questions please call the school at 252-438-8415 or send a note with your child.
