WELCOME to THIRD GRADE!!!
 
Hello everyone!!
I am so excited about this school year and having your child in my class! I am from the Holly Springs area and also attended Holly Springs Motlow as a child so I am thrilled to be back as a teacher. I am married and live in Inman and I have daughter named Janie that was born February 2017! She is precious and I love being her Mommy! I also have three dogs that I love very much! I have my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Converse College. I know we are all going to have a great school year and I look forward to another amazing year here at Holly Springs Motlow Elementary!

Reading Log

Reading is a vital part of third grade. Practice is needed in order to become a fluent reader. Each student will read nightly for 15 minutes from “a just right book” of their choice.

Math Medallion
MASTERING
MULTIPLICATION
The Kiwanis Club of 
Spartanburg recognizes the 
importance of third graders 
mastering the multiplication 
facts. They have agreed to 
present medallions at Awards 
Day to all of our third graders with 100% mastery 
(100 facts) on a 11 minute timed test. Daily practice 
at home on these basic facts is critical. Using 
flashcards or calling out problems is an easy way to 
help students practice this skill. Each week we will 
focus on learning a new group of multiplication facts. 
Fact test will be given each Friday. Students are 
expected to know their multiplication facts 0-10.

Tips For Parents
  • Have your child read aloud to you each night.
  • Rereading familiar books helps build reading fluency. Children need practice in reading comfortably and with expression using books they know.
  • When your child reads aloud to you and makes a mistake, point out the words he/she has missed and help him/her to read the words correctly.
  • Ask your child to tell you in his/her own words what happened in the story.
  • To check your child’s understanding of what he/she is reading, occasionally pause and ask your child questions about the characters and events in the story. Ask what new information he/she has learned from the book.
