Hello and welcome to Our Classroom.
Third grade is an awesome grade to teach and to be in. I am super excited to be teaching third grade again. I plan on having a lot of fun learning with group work, hands on projects and games. Fun is part of a great learning experience, but make no mistake, HIGH EXPECTATIONS and RIGOROUS work will be part of our day.
This year your child will be mastering their multiplication skills, traveling around the world in Social Studies, exploring the ecosystems of the world in Science, and increasing their fluency and comprehension in reading. For us to be successful MANY hands will have to be supporting us. Let's work as a team to make this a successful year!
My Homework policy is to try, try, try. Homework is handed out based on the needs of the child. I DO NOT give homework, to just give homework. If your child is struggling with a skill, homework is a tool I will use to support them, sometimes we have mastered skills and practice homework is not needed, and sometimes we have a need to be challenged and homework will be designed to challenge your child's mind. EVERY DAY HOMEWORK IS TO READ FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES! THAT IS EVERY DAY!!!!
If at any time you have a question or concern please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I promise you that all emails will be answered within 24 hours of receiving them. During school hours my MAIN focus are your children and their learning. I kindly ask to refrain calling during those hours, because I will be busy teaching, challenging, and supporting your young learners. By using email I can read your question, concern, or comments, and call you when I am free during the school day, or in the evening. I am here for you as much as I am for your child. Communication will be key to keep our success moving forward!
