Welcome to Third Grade
I am so excited to be teaching your child and I want to welcome you to my classroom. Third grade is a very busy year for students, it is a year where children really grow and become more independent in their learning. Students at this age/grade are no longer learning to read, they are reading to learn! Students are learning higher level comprehension skills and are developing their vocabulary so they can use this in their reading and writing. Students are sharpening their basic math skills and learning more advanced skills such as multiplication, division, fractions, and real world problem solving.
Thank you parents for working with your child to make sure they are reading every day and thank you for taking an active role in your child's educational career. It really makes a difference in your child's life when you are involved. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to a great year!
