Dear Parents and Students,
Greetings and welcome to our third grade classroom. 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.
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. If you call during school hours, just leave a message at the office and I will get back with you as soon as possible. E-mail is also a great way to contact me.
Re-enrollment letters are coming home today! Please make sure that you get the envelope from your student! Inside is the code for you to be able to use to re-enroll your student. EVERYTHING IS DONE ONLINE THIS YEAR! The cut off is on Feb. 19th
so if you do not complete it by then, then your student will be put into the lottery for next year.
Welcome back students (and parents)! As we look forward to another great semester, please don't hesitate to come visit us in classroom to see what we are doing. Also, if you have any concerns please let me know how I can help!
We are starting off this semester with classifying and sorting two- and three- dimensional figures based on attributes using formal geometric language.
