CLASSROOM SYMBALOO WEBMIXES

Below you will find helpful links and tools I have bookmarked for our classroom this year.! Please notice the tabs to click between webmixes! There is a special PARENTS webmix, which will be added to as time goes on!

As the year goes on, students will have more and more choice as to how they "show" what they know. The webmixes will reflect this, but please know I will be introducing tools and resources slowly as we find what best works for our class.

Dear New 3rd Grader,

I hope you had a relaxing and fun summer. I’m writing today to let you know that I can hardly wait to welcome you back to this new school year and to be your teacher! This year will be different, but it does not mean it will not be amazing! We will all work together to build a learning community. You will meet new friends and feel connected to your new class. We will be a community of 3rd graders learning, creating, and having lots of fun along the way.

This year you are going to grow in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. You will become a scientist who asks questions and investigates. In social studies, you will learn about where you live and who lived there before you. By June, you will be proud of your progress and achievements!

I want you to know that I will be there for you as we try new things and grow when something may be hard for us. I plan on making sure you have choices on how you learn new concepts and on how you show what you’ve learned, so there will be lots of ways for you to be creative!

Below is the general supply list for third grade. You will use these items throughout the year. Looking forward to an awesome year with you! See you September 8th, our first day of school. Enjoy the rest of the summer!
