# Ms. Burr's Class

### The best 3rd graders there are!

Hello parents! We have not met yet because parent teacher night is still a couple weeks away so I thought you might want to know a bit about the person teaching your kids! This is my first year as a teacher and I have a lot of ideas that I'm bringing to the classroom so your kids will get the most they can out of this important year. So far they are really enjoying what they're learning and hopefully they have let you know or you have noticed yourself which means we're on track for plenty of learning!

## How available am I?

Some of you might be curious as to how you or your child might be able to reach me if you need me. I am in the classroom until 4 o'clock for students who need help with the material or parents who want to come in and talk. If you need to schedule an appointment with me because those hours do not work for you all you have to do is call me. I will do my best to find a time that works for both of us. If you need to call me my number is 555-6284. I just ask you do not call during class as that causes a disruption and costs us precious learning time.

## Fun learning game

In class we're studying capitals and the students are learning very quickly. If they want to review what they are learning in a fun way they can play this game, Country Toad. They play a toad that is jumping from lily pad to lily pad by selecting the country for which they are given the capital.

## Library Field Trip

As you might remember, in a couple weeks we are taking a field trip to the public library! We are going to go and learn about the purpose of a library, how to check out books, where to find books, and so much more. I hope some of you will be interested in tagging along as chaperones so that we can all have a fun and safe field trip!

## Number CSI

Next week we have a fun assignment to round off the end of the section. We have been studying fractions and decimals and to make sure the students all really understand the material we are going to play a game called 'Number CSI'. In this game students are trying to figure out which of the 10 suspects stole one million dollars by using fractions and decimals to work out five clues. Each clue eliminates a few suspects and the students keep track of who is eliminated on a scoring sheet. I hope this will be a fun learning experience and show the students the importance of these concepts.
