READ over the summer and practice those MATH FACTS! And most of all, HAVE FUN!!!!

SEE THE FILE CABINET BELOW FOR SUMMER MATH AND READING RECOMMENDATIONS!

Incoming THIRD GRADERS:

3K will be using an alternative seating arrangement this year.  Students will have work bins for their folders, journals and books.  We'll use community supplies at tables and individual work baskets.  We're excited to try some standing desks (thanks to a PTA grant) and floor seating this year. 

We are asking students to bring a few items for themselves and to contribute to the supply bins by bringing the following items:

  • A box of 8 crayons
  • A box of 8 markers
  • one pack of index cards
  • one roll of masking tape
  • one black marble journal for writing (every child needs one)
  • 2 or more thin dry erase markers
  • a box of pencils
  • one pillowcase (every child needs one)

Please bring a book to read the first week of school.  We'd like to see what you like to read outside of school.  

We can't wait for our first day of school, Tuesday, September 5th!  -Mrs. Knight and Mrs. Davies

 

COOPERATIVE SNACKS IN THIRD GRADE

 

Each family will be responsible for providing snack a few times during the school year.  Please purchase snacks for the entire class for the week.  Keep it simple!  I am trying to create a community where we all enjoy the same snacks.  The cafeteria has fruit and we fill our fruit basket daily.  In addition, we will add a few snacks for those who need other options.  We have 18 students so please provide enough food for the group.  Two large bags of a snack will be enough for our group each day.  We love fresh fruit, cheese, yogurt, vegetables and more.  I’m not a dietitian and am still working out the details of a cooperative snack, so please contact me with suggestions and feedback on this new and changing snack policy.

We have a water fountain in our classroom.  Students can have a small water bottle that they use during the day.  We will have a place in the classroom to store them as they will not have their own desk.  

Some delicious and popular snacks include but are not limited to:

Pretzels, popcorn, rice snacks, corn chips and salsa, pita chips and hummus, cheese and crackers, yogurt, cheese sticks, nutrigrain cereal bars, granola bars, carrots, cucumbers, celery and other vegetables with a dipping sauce, breads and muffins, fruit kabobs, clementines, strawberries, grapes and more!!!
