3rd Grade Educational Links

Third Grade - Home | English | Math | Reading | Handwriting | Pen-Pals | Soldier Writing | Social Sciences | Spelling | Educational Links

Monday through Friday of each week, we use centers in the classroom to reinforce the skills third graders need to work on, especially those that will be tested on the Kansas State Assessment. One of these centers involves using the laptops. Once a week your child will have the opportunity to go to the laptops and practice skills using the computer. If you want your child to practice skills at home, or know of a skill your child needs to work on, the following educational links will be helpful.
