Welcome new third grader and your families! Third grade is a momentous year and I look forward to celebrating learning together!
We look forward to you joining us this evening for Open House from 5:30-7 pm, to get to know your new classroom and each other! You may bring your supplies to lighten your bookbag on Tuesday, our first day of school. :) I suggest your leave your three ring binder at home to organize tests you may want to keep to review for our SOL tests in the Spring. The tests will be hole punched for your convenience. I have extra composition books for your use in our classroom. I appreciate you being able to see your thinking as the year progresses, in your notebooks.
Parents, I am implementing whole brain teaching strategies to help your student become more engaged in their education and teach one another what they are learning. If you are interested, a free website is wholebrainteaching.com.
As teachers, we will be focusing on teaching and learning to be visible. Students will understand our goals in each lesson and learn how to take ownership of their learning. As teachers, we want to learn to listen and understand where each student is working and provide feedback. Our goal is for students to be able to self-monitor and self assess, and to have ownership in their learning. Our staff is using John Hattie's thoughts on Visible Learning to help us reach that goal. :)
I look forward to teaching your student! They energize me!
We have a classroom pet named Rex (Rexie), who is of the Mini Rex breed. Students take turns caring for him in our classroom. If you would like to host him a weekend, please send back the form and we'll communicate when it suits you best. He will need a car ride to your home on Friday and be brought back on Monday.
Remember, Verona kids are respectful, responsible, and eager to always be learning! :)
Sincerely, Mrs. Myers
