    Do your homework. Homework is important and forms part of your overall marks and impression on the teacher. Do your very best and take time when doing it; rushed homework is often not done well. If you don't understand homework, have someone to help you. There's someone out there that can help you, such as a sibling, parent/guardian, friend or teacher.

    Come prepared for school. Have a morning routine. Have a good breakfast each morning. Sleep early and set an alarm clock if you are not capable of waking up on time. Make sure you have all your supplies and that you are clean and energetic. Being prepared is important for a successful year of third grade.


  • Try to avoid procrastinating. Hand in your homework on time, same for your assignments and projects. Avoid distractions!
  • Don't be mean and let down others. Being mean spoils your reputation.
  • Have all the supplies you need. Keep some extra looseleaf paper and copy paper in a folder. Keep a spare notebook in your desk. Bring a lot of pencils and a sharpener, plus a few erasers.
  • Buy a three ringed binder if you want to be organized. It is portable and can keep your supplies organized.
  • If you have any textbooks that are paper, use clear contact paper to cover your books. This will protect the books and allow you to see the titles still.


  • Do not wear anything that is against the dress code.
  • Do not fight bullies. Do the right thing and tell an adult or teacher.
  • Never bend school rules for anything!
  • Tell on someone to a teacher if you see someone doing something wrong. It's wrong to let someone doing something they're not supposed to do to slip and get away with it.
  • When someone wants to copy your homework, assignment, test, project, etc., say no! It is wrong and if it is your friend, tell him/her that you will help them.
