All rising third graders are required to read and log at least 20 minutes per day or a minimum of 80 minutes per week, for a total required summer reading of at least 680 minutes. Please use the official St. Luke School Summer Reading Log and fill out each section with:
- Number of Minutes Read
- Book Title
- Parent Initials
The Summer Reading Log should be turned in turned in to the third grade teacher when you visit the classroom on Monday, August 13th. There are so many great books available, but if you need some ideas please refer to the list of Suggested Summer Reading put together by the third grade teachers.
We want to hear about how you spend your summer! Record some of your favorite moments in your Summer Journal. Rising third graders should use a composition book for their journal entries. Rising second graders are required to have at least 8 journal entries and each entry should include:
- An illustration and/or memorabilia (e.g., movie or park tickets, photos, postcards, etc.)
- 2-3 written sentences per entry that describe what is happening in the illustration and/or attached memorabilia
The Summer Journal should also be turned in to the third grade teacher when you visit the classroom on Monday, August 13th.
Summer Math Packet
All rising third graders are required to complete a grade appropriate summer math packet over the summer. The rising third grade math packet will be available in ParentsWeb beginning May 24th. (Go to ParentsWeb | School Information | Resource Documents and select the correct grade level, i.e., the grade your child will be entering for the 2018-2019 school year.)
These math concepts should be a review of grade appropriate essential skills which were studied during the year and which the students should have mastered. Be sure to follow the directions in the packet and be prepared to turn in the completed work to the teacher when you visit the classroom on Monday, August 13th. Students should complete all problems neatly and make sure all are completely labeled. Students will be tested over the material in the math packet during the first week of school. If you experience problems, please email Mrs. Oliver at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mrs. Parker at email@example.com.
