Ms. Crowder's Class
Third Grade Rocks!!
Welcome to Third Grade!
I am looking forward to spending this year with your child and your family. There is a big change between 2nd and 3rd grade, and I am looking forward to seeing your child learn and grow this year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns this year. I believe that your child will have a more successful experience if we work together.
Using Class Dojo
This year we will be using a program called Class Dojo. If you are unfamiliar with the program it is all online, and allows for parent communication. I can send out whole class messages, individual messages, pictures and videos of what we are doing and I track student behavior for positive and negative consequences. I will be sending home a personal link for you and your student to set up accounts. Each account is personal and individual. However, anything shared on the classroom "wall" can be seen by everyone.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Be sure to download the app as I will use this as my primary form of communication with you.
Let the homework begin!!
Spelling words will be in the planner each week. The date of the test will be written in the planner on the test date.
Math homework will be sent home after we have had time to learn and play with the concept. Your child should be able to explain most if not all of the steps that we use to complete the problems. Please check Dojo often for help with the math homework. I will send an example of the homework if it is something that might not be presented in a way that we (adults) learned it in the "olden days". LOL!
**Please see the math section for more details about math.
Spelling Words # 1
I would encourage you to talk to your child about what they are doing in class. Have them explain the new ways we are exploring and learning about math and how numbers are related to each other. If you have questions at any time please do not hesitate to contact me.
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
I will send information home when the meeting date has been set.
