Thank you so much for taking the time to read through our class website. I have found this to be a very useful resource when it comes to communicating with my students' parents. I would like to take a moment to welcome you to our third grade classroom. Third grade is a busy year (and one of my favorites!) and along with this comes new responsibilities for your kids. I appreciate your help in furthering their education. Parents are a child's first teacher, after all! We will be learning so much about writing strategies, as well as operations, the environment, fossils, and so much more! There are plenty of resources that will be sent home if you ever need to help your child with his/her homework. I try to keep homework to 30 minutes a night, max. Your child should always practice outside of this time, but I do think it is important for them to be children and have some play time. Feel free to explore the website some more, and if you have any questions be sure to send me an email. I am so thrilled to have your child in my class this year.
