Mrs. Wakefield’s and Mrs. Hook’s Classroom Information

Spelling and Grammar Tests: On Fridays (or the last day of the school week), we will have our spelling and Grammar tests.

Reading: Unless it is a review week, your child will have a story to read out of their reading book. This helps your child develop fluency and comprehension. The half sheet of paper they bring home each week needs to be signed by an adult, confirming that they read the story. Your child may read aloud to you, read silently, read it to a pet or stuffed animal, to a younger sibling, etc. The half sheet needs to be returned the same week of the assignment to receive 5 extra credit bonus points in reading. We will have a comprehension and vocabulary test on our weekly story on Wednesdays and a skills test on Fridays or the last day of the week.

Math-This year our math class will consist of mostly hands on work and electronic fact practice. You will not see daily math homework as you did in 1st and 2nd grade. You may contact Mrs. Hook at anytime with any questions or concerns about your child’s progress.


Book Orders: Your child will be receiving a Scholastic Book Order every 3-4 weeks. If you would like to order books, software, etc., from the order, just mark your selections and send the payment in an envelope, and I will order those for you. This is optional ---- just a great, economical source for purchasing books for children

Information Sheets: Please send in your information sheet as soon as you can.

Panther Bucks This year for behavior we use a token economy. Your child will earn Panther Bucks for good behavior, tests and assignment grades, and class participation. Your child may spend their Panther Bucks on quarterly Panther Buck Parties. Students may also be fined Panther Bucks for disruptive classroom behavior.

Birthday Information: Every year parents occasionally like to send snacks or cupcakes for parties, birthdays, etc. At this time we have 25 students.

ART SUPPLIES: If you have not already done so you may send a paint shirt for your child to wear over their clothes. We will store them in our classroom._____________________________________________________

Box Tops: We collect Box Tops. If you see them on items you have purchased please cut them off and send them in.

H.O.T. Club ~ Here On Time Club. Everyday when the entire class arrives to the classroom by 8:10 we get to fly our Panther flag outside our classroom door. If we fly our flag 15 days we will have an extra recess!


I hope your child is enjoying 3rd grade! Thank you for sharing your child with us. Each of their personalities is a treasure! A weekly note like this one will be sent home or e-mailed to you at the beginning of each week with spelling words and important information. Have a great week!
