Dear Parents, 

Welcome to Mr. Jacome's Third Grade Class at Knollwood Elementary School!

      We are having a very busy and exciting year here in our 3rd grade classroom, all students will enjoy a rigorous and challenging program that is engaging and appropriate for addressing each individual student’s needs.  Your child has been working toward meeting and exceeding state standards and toward acquiring the tools/skills necessary for his/her future, academically and otherwise.  Each student has the opportunity to develop his/her reading, writing, math and other academic skills and knowledge through our reading and math programs and a wide variety of literature, hands-on activities, historical resources, scientific inquiry, manipulatives, and technology.  Students have been engaged in activities that develop higher level thinking skills as they work together to increase their knowledge and develop social skills. 

      I realize that teaching your child is a privilege, as well as a tremendous responsibility. I will do my best this year to ensure that each student has a motivating and safe learning experience in the classroom. However, I cannot do this alone. I need your help. We both need to be partners in the learning process. I need each of you to encourage your child at home by helping to ensure that they have completed their assignments, and help them study for quizzes, if necessary. I know with your help that we are going to have a great year!

Mr. Jacome

  

   
​​​ ***Homework will require some parental involvement at this level. Your cooperation is essential in developing a positive homework habit. First and foremost, you can encourage your child by showing interest and demonstrating helpful attitudes toward homework.
Some additional suggestions for homework:
• Provide a noise-free, well-lit place to work
• Establish a regular "homework time" in the home and have a special place free from excessive noise.
• Help your child organize adequate time to complete activities neatly and carefully.
• Encourage your child to ask for help when he/she doesn't understand something or is frustrated. Teachers, like parents, can help only if they know there is a need.
• Decide if it becomes too frustrating of a task to stop and take a break. Any work done under duress or frustration is not a positive or healthy learning experience.

***Toys and personal valuables should not be brought to school. If they are, they are at school at the child’s
risk. All personal belongings should be clearly labeled with your child’s name.

HOMEWORK is given 4-5 times each week and is expected to take about 30 minutes. In addition to the assigned homework, students are expected to read independently for a minimum of 15 minutes each night. Assignments will be recorded in the Student Assignment Book which students are required to take home each day. Students are expected to practice their recorders each day.


That is it for now!  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns throughout the year.
