News from our Third Grade Ranch!

This is It!
The end of the year always brings about a sense of accomplishment. So much has been accomplished this year in third grade - students have made the transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn", in addition to becoming more independent workers. They have begun their journey into multiplication and division, which forms the basis of their mathematics into the upper grades. They have become writers, being able to organize and form multi-paragraph pieces about most any topic. They have matured in their friendships with others, learning skills to work together that will carry them through their schooling and into college and their future workplaces.
I am honored to be their teacher. I thank you for your continued support, and for sharing your children with me, so that I had an opportunity this year to get to know them and teach them. I hope their third grade year was an enjoyable one, and one they will remember. Each student I have changes my life in a different way....I learn so much from them. I love hearing their stories and being a part of their lives! Thank you!
Mark Your Calendars!
This year, I've had more kids master their multiplication facts than any other class!! That is a reflection of your support with them at home, studying and reviewing!! Thank you so much for spending the time to work with your child for homework. Knowing their facts is the basis for all other math they will use from this point forward!
