Dear American Academy Third Grade Families,

WOW! What a fantastic school year we had this year! We are so thankful for each and every student and their families for making this school year in 3rd grade so successful. Thank you all for the many gifts, flowers, gift cards, and heartfelt notes that we received these last few weeks. We feel so appreciated and very spoiled! But most of all we want to say a BIG thank you for sharing your children with us and allowing us to teach each of them. We are so grateful for the support and kindness that you have shown our entire team of teachers the whole year. We want to wish every family a HAPPY summer vacation!

*If interested- here are a few summer resources to continue the learning in the summer. The best thing each student can do is to READ, READ, and READ and memorize their math facts!

MAPs math skills help:

Khan website will give you practice problems in a student’s score area if you have his/her MAPs scores. Please refer to student’s scores on the MAPs report.
 
Khan Website:   

https://www.khanacademy.org/mappers



For example under the math scores if student has:
Number Sense, Properties, and
Operations 175-185

…so on the Khan website choose the score of 180 in math under all four sub categories. This will then generate sample problems to practice math skills within the student’s RIT score. This will be great practice for student. Plus go ahead and practice problems using a higher RIT score, if the student is doing well with the problems in his RIT score.
