Welcome to third grade! I hope everyone has had a great summer and is looking forward to coming back to school! Teachers have been working hard all week to prepare for the students' arrival on September 3rd! Please remember to send your student with their school supplies on the first day of school so they are prepared for the upcoming year. The list is on the school website if you have not yet purchased those items. Also, remember to wear appropriate shoes for the playground at recess time. On the first day of school we will have Music and continue to have Music every Tuesday this year. We will have PE on Monday and Wednesday, and Art on Monday. This year we will continue with our Enrichment program and have Spanish and Science twice a week. We will visit Dr. Sullivan this year in the Discovery Lab every other week.
Your first homework assignment will be your "All About Me" bag. On the first day of school, I will share mine with you so you will get to know more about me! You will be assigned a day to bring in your own bag, so PLEASE CHECK YOUR PAPER FOR YOUR DAY TO SHARE. The assignment will be sent home on the first day of school along with a bag for your items. You may start thinking about your objects using the guidelines below.
You need to bring in 5 objects that represent.
1. Something special about you.
2. Something you like to do
3. Something important to you
4. Something that represents your family
5. Something that represents somewhere special you've visited
Start looking for items you would like to share with me and the rest of the class. But please, do not bring in your items on the first day. Your day will be on the bottom of the page you will get on the first day of school.
Please remember to bring back your summer reading and math packets the first week of school as well.
You are welcome to bring a healthy snack to eat in the afternoon during our reading and writing block. Examples of healthy snacks could include fruit, vegetables, pretzels, granola bars.
I am looking forward to getting to know each and every one of you this year. I am excited to have an excellent year in 3rd grade. See you all on September 3rd!
