Teacher Experience/brief bio
My name is Carol Danchise. I am very pleased to be the math teacher for third grade. It is my favorite subject, and I will try my very best to make it enjoyable and entertaining. I have been teaching for thirty-five years and have enjoyed every one of them. This year, I hope to motivate your children to learn as well as to develop the desire to learn. It will be a team effort to help your children develop into the best people they can be as well as great mathematicians.
I am a graduate of Weehawken High School and Fairleigh Dickinson University. I am proud to be the mother of one son, Brian, and a daughter, Heather. My family also consists of one dog and two cats. We are animal lovers.
I look forward to working with parents and students. We will be successful in having an outstanding and productive year.

Our first math unit will be on place value. Review the skills learned each day at home. Homework should be no more than 20 minutes per night.
The most difficult concept to be learned is multiplication. Study the basic facts at home. Students will be rewarded for their knowledge.
Reminders: Be punctual, come to school prepared, bring a snack each day, bring your lunch or lunch money each day, take care of your chrome book, always be kind, etc.
Recommended home activities to support the classroom learning
flash cards for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
Bingo games for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
Play "Concentration". Using two different colors of construction paper, write the facts on one color and the answers on the other. Number them and hang them up to not be seen. One person will pick a color with the fact and another color with the answer. If it is correct, the person goes again. If incorrect, return the papers. The other person takes a turn. The person with the most correct matches is the winner.
CDs can be purchased with different types of music to teach multiplication facts.
