Welcome to Third Grade! We will be doing many fun activities all year along with loads of learning and exploring.  My name is Laurel Brest.  I have been teaching in the Blackhawk School District for 11 years.  I have my Bachelor of Science from Slippery Rock University in Elementary and Special Education and Master’s in Teaching and Curriculum from Penn State University.  I love spending time with my family, camping, and reading.  We are huge Pittsburgh Pirate fans.

4th Quarter

Current 4th Quarter:

We will finish the year in mathematics with more division and multiplication to prepare for 4th grade.  Your child should be fluent in multiplication facts 0-9. 

In reading, the students will continue the Daily 5 system. While students are doing this I am working with small groups conducting guided reading groups where we are focusing on skills differentiated according to student need.  I will also be conducting End of Year BAS assessments.  Some of the skills include sequence, author’s message, compare/contrast, making inferences, asking questions, multiple meaning words, cause and effect, fluency, and accuracy.  We also will be reading Freckle Juice and completing a novel study on The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.  This quarter we will target these skills within our weekly reading passages in our Storytown books and the chapter books. 

In English, students will work on Capitalization and Punctuation.
