Mrs. Erin Barrett
3rd Grade Self-Contained
Welcome students and parents. :) I hope to make this school year, 2019-2020, exciting for you both. We will study 3rd grade reading, writing, math, science, and social studies TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills Standards), plus much more.
Every day my goal is to challenge all my students, while making learning fun and relevant. Research shows the most effective way to improve reading skills is for students to read regularly and independently. Each of my students will be expected to read (uninterrupted) for at least 20 min. in class each day and for at least 20 min. each night.
I encourage students to be at school every day by 7:30 am. The tardy bell rings at 7:45 am. (Please read the student handbook for clarification on our district policies.) Our class is a calm and peaceful learning environment. I hope to make it feel like a second home. Remember READ, READ, READ to SUCCEED!
The best way to reach me is via email. It goes directly to my phone. firstname.lastname@example.org
or on our class app SeeSaw. You can see what your child is working on in my class, receive class announcements, view pictures and videos, or send me private messages using SeeSaw. I will send home this information the first week of school.
