Oh, The Places You'll Go!!

Where will YOU go this year in third grade??

There are so many endless possibilities! Will you travel to a distant land in a fairy tale? Dive to the depths of the ocean in a non-fiction book? Write your own adventure and be the headlining star?? I am very excited about this year and being a tour guide to your explorations in reading, writing and language arts!

Below you will find our third grade "Wish List" for our classroom. These are supplies that are specific to our classroom, unlike the third grade general supply list. Please purchase what you can from our CLASSROOM SUPPLY LIST. Thank you so much in advance!

It is that time of year again! SUMMER! I hope that all of my little fantastic first graders enjoy their time off this year. Don't sit around in front of the television all break...get outside in this beautiful weather, use those imaginations like we talked about this year! However, drink LOTS of water to stay hydrated!! Can't wait to see you all starting second grade in the Fall.

There are BIG changes with Ms. T! Our FANTASTIC principal, Mrs. Johnson, thinks that I will be a great third grade teacher, so next year I will be heading out on a new adventure in third grade. I am excited for the changes and am eagerly preparing myself daily to be the best teacher for my kids, and to make sure they have all the tools they need for "that" big test! :) I will be teaching reading and writing in Room 20(right down the hall from 2nd I will see many of you often), with my partner, Mr. Campbell teaching math and science.

Everyone enjoy your summer and stay tuned..... :)
