Hello wonderful 3rd grade families!

Welcome to 3rd Grade!  I am so excited to be back at school and to have your students here!  For our first week of school we will be spending most of our time getting to know each other.  It is always such a special time of the year.  Along with the introductions and team building, we will be organizing school supplies, and going over important rules and procedures.
Things to remember are to make sure we have the correct transportation information for your child.  Also, they may bring a water bottle and healthy snack to school everyday.  Your student may wear a mask, however it is not required at this time.  
For Reading we will be reviewing Story Structure and Plot Elements in fiction stories.  We will use many fun books in the first couple of weeks to practice this reading skill.  We will write about different topics such as what we did this summer.  We will also be getting our  Writer's Notebook all set up, and more information will be sent about that very soon. 
THANKS for sharing your kids with me, and as always THANKS for your support from home!!!
Ms. Rodriguez
