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 things including multiplication and cursive handwriting, and you will use a laptop instead of an I-Pad this year. We will set these up and learn to use them together. Some of our units of study are 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 who are 16 and 19 years old. We just came home from a vacation to our favorite spot, Kiawah Island, South Carolina. We enjoyed the beach and bike rides, 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, helping Noah learn to drive, and getting Owen ready to go back to college.
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 name or initials using your thin Sharpie. Labeling pencils might sound silly, but they often end up on the floor and around the classroom.
I look forward to seeing you soon. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
