Dear Third Graders and Parents,
Welcome to third grade! I am so happy you are in my class this year at Jenkins White Elementary School! I can’t wait to meet you!
I hope you are excited to begin third grade because this will be a fun, fabulous and fascinating year of learning! Throughout the year, we will strengthen and expand our skills as readers, writers and mathematical problem-solvers as we tackle new concepts and challenges in all academic areas. We will read, discuss and write about intriguing new topics to refine and improve our literacy skills. In social studies, we will explore the history of Georgia, learn more about our government and study the five habitats of Georgia. Get ready to stretch your marvelous math skills as we delve even more deeply into place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, estimation, geometry and more!
Please remember to bring all of your supplies on the first day of school. This will help us get organized so we can dive right into learning. I would also like you to bring two additional items on the first day – your favorite summer reading book and something small that reminds you of a special summer memory. This will provide us with the opportunity to exchange ideas about the awesome books we read over the summer and give us ideas of some cool books we might want to read in the months ahead. At the same time, we can enjoy getting acquainted with new friends and reacquainted with old friends.
Most importantly, please remember to bring your enthusiasm for learning, a positive attitude, sense of humor, caring heart and willingness to work hard. With these qualities in place, we can accomplish fantastic feats in third grade! I can’t wait to get started!
Your excited third grade teacher,
