Welcome to 3rd Grade!
I am glad you are going to be in my class this year! There are some nice kids in our class and I know you will have a fun time this year. I like to do a lot of arts and crafts projects mixed in with our class work. We work really hard, but we also have a lot of fun times too. Our class is going to have a few parties, so parents will need to fill out the Parent Permission Form for Parties and return it to me. If you would like to celebrate your birthday in class with your friends you can bring in treats or party favors during the last 20 minutes of the school day. I'll even "bake" you a cake.
3rd Grade is a lot of fun! We get to be on ASB (Associated Student Body), possibly be our Monte Vista Class Ambassador, dress up for our Monte Fest and play games and eat yummy food, and we go on a field trip to the Santa Rosa Plateau. 3rd Graders get to participate in Horizon's rotations, enjoy P.E. several times a week, have two recesses, and go to End-of-the-Year activities such 3rd Grade Field Day, and a Drive Inn Movie in a car you build yourself incorporating math and science concepts.
We have a new language arts curriculum that is very interesting. I have a lot of hands-on manipulatives to work with during math and in centers. We also have a half-dozen laptops for you to use when you do research, independent reading, and our class work. You may use your own ear buds or headphones from home, but you are responsible for it so it doesn't get lost or damaged. You can keep it in class in your own private storage space, or in your back pack.
Most of our information, class pictures, classwork and homework will be found on Haiku. We will communicate between home and school through Aeries Communication. I know you will try your hardest to always do a good job, and I will work just as hard to make sure you are ready for fourth grade and have fun learning!
