Welcome to Ms. Short's funfilled 3rd grade classroom! This webpage is designed to give parents and students an idea of what 3rd grade is like. It is a big step up from 2nd grade and the first year for SOL testing! Don't worry, though! We will teach your child everything he or she needs to know to do their best on the tests! Please read and study with your child every night. There will always be material they need to practice! Turn it into a game or let them get online. Whatever it may be~it counts! Vocabulary is a step up, so practice reading terms for all subjects. We will go over testing strategies throughout the year that need to be used consitently at home and in school. I am looking forward to working with you and your child. Feel free to call me at 434-822-5944. Thanks, Jessica Short
