Welcome to 3rd grade! The summer is quickly coming to an end and you will be back in school soon. I hope you had a wonderful summer and you are looking forward to a magnificent year in the 3rd grade! I had a great summer relaxing at my home in Delaware, reading, playing with my dog, biking, stand up paddle boarding in the bay and being with family. I also spent time just relaxing and walking on the beautiful beach in Delaware!
First, let me introduce myself. My name is Ms. Len. This is my 19th year at Liberty Corner School and my 13th year teaching 3rd grade! I am looking forward to having many new adventures with you! I am also looking forward to getting to know all of you and hearing about your summer!
In 3rd grade, we will be learning about exciting topics. In Language Arts, we will embark on an adventure with our reading and writing workshop programs! We will be exploring all types of genres while practicing our reading and writing skills. You will learn how to keep a writer’s notebook while enjoying so many wonderful books of your choice! We will also be involved with an author study of Roald Dahl. Our science units are captivating and include forces and interactions, life cycles and traits as well as weather and climate. This year in Math, we will learn about multiplication, geometry, measurement and more using our math program, GO MATH! Finally, in Social Studies we will learn about communities, including Bernards Township.
On the first day of school, we will have our schedule of what days we have PE, so you’ll know when to wear or bring your gym shoes. When you get to the classroom, I will have a homework folder for you plus other folders for our other subjects. In the 3rd grade, we start to learn about how important it is to be organized. On my website, you can find a list of the supplies that you will need for the 3rd grade. I always liked shopping for school supplies in the fall. How about you? If you ordered a supply kit it will be waiting for you here in the classroom at open house. Children in my class will need TWO, 1” binders.
I hope you will be able to stop by for our Open House on Wednesday, September 4th anytime from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. so I can meet you and say, “Hello!” You will find me in Room 218 on Responsibility Terrace! Our first full day of school is on Thursday, September 5th! Please tell your parents that this is a FULL day of school!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
