Dear Parents and Students,
Greetings and welcome to our third grade classroom. I am so excited to have your child in my 3rd grade class this year! I know that this is going to be a fun and successful year! I have been teaching 3rd grade for nine years and this is my third year at Life School. I am so blessed to be able to work with an awesome team of people. I am married to a handsome firefighter, Floyd. We have one son, Floyd III (Will), who turned one over the summer!
This website was designed to foster communication between home and school. As you explore this website, you will be able to see our class schedule, read about special events, and learn about our third grade curriculum. This website will allow you to gain a better understanding of what we do each day in Room 214.
Make sure you are staying connected this year! Here are a few ways to do so:
- Sign up for my Remind messages. This is a method I will use to remind you of things throughout the school year. Text @Will1718 to 81010.
- Visit my teacher website for updates.
- Sign up fot the parent portal to view your child's grades. This can be done through the Life Schools website.
- Be sure to check your child's Take Home Folder daily.
Third grade is such an exciting year and there are many new skills third graders will be learning. The upcoming 9 weeks instructional time will focus on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of multiplication and division and strategies for multiplication and division within 100; (2) developing understanding of fractions, especially unit fractions (fractions with numerator 1); (3) developing understanding of the structure of rectangular arrays and of area; and (4) describing and analyzing two-dimensional shapes.
This might sound a little overwhelming, so it is my goal to help each student enjoy learning and become successful...and remember...
Together, we can make a difference.
Feel free to contact me when you have questions or concerns arise. My door is always open!
