Hello Third Graders!
Welcome to third grade and to Room 102! I am excited to meet you and to work with you this year. I've heard a lot of good things about you from your second grade teachers. Third grade is such a fun school year. You will learn and practice so many fun things this year, and you will get to use a laptop instead of an I-Pad. We will work together to learn to navigate your new laptop. Some of our units of study include Life Cycles, Economics, Maps and Globes, and The Solar System. You will have the opportunity to raise your very own butterfly when we study life cycles and will get to create a product to sell when we have a grade level economics fair.
I hope you are having a wonderful summer. I am certainly enjoying mine. The best part for me has been being able to spend time with my family including Mr. Moelter and our two sons, Owen and Noah. Owen is a junior at St. Joseph's University, and Noah will begin his senior year at CB South. We also have a crested gecko named Coco. We just returned from a vacation to one of our favorite spots, Stowe, Vermont where we enjoyed hiking and biking, and the boys all enjoyed playing golf. Someday I’d like to learn to play golf too, but my golf swing needs a lot of work! During this final month of summer, I'll be getting our classroom unpacked and ready to go, take a trip to Sea Isle City, and make some college visits with Noah.
A list of the supplies that you will need to start third grade can be found on Jamison’s website www.cbsd.org/schools/jamison. Please ask your mom or dad to help you label all of your school supplies (including each of your pencils) with your initials using your thin Sharpie. Labeling pencils might sound silly, but they often end up on the floor and around the classroom. We will store your extra markers, pencils, erasers, etc. in a cubby that you can access as needed.
In addition to those items on the supply list, our classroom could use donations of gallon and quart sized zip-lock type bags.
I look forward to seeing you soon. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
