    school supplies

    I have provided everything your child needs to have a successful year in 3rd grade. If you would like to bring in a small pencil case to keep inside their desks. Soft cases work and fit best.

    Please make sure it is labeled with their name on it.

    The students are also encouraged to bring in a water bottle (filled with water) each day. These will be kept in a central location and available throughout the day.

    Binder: These have not come in yet-I may need to ask all parents to send in a 1inch 3-ring binder with their child.

    I will be providing a binder for students within the first few days of school.  We will keep all work in this binder, Binders will stay in school unless notified otherwise.  Once we complete units/topics papers from the binders will be sent home.

     Homework Folder: I will be providing a folder for students on the first day. This folder is to come back and forth with them to school everyday. Please use this folder to send in important notes and/or homework. 

    Art Smock (optional): Please label with their name


    Since our desk storage space is limited, we ask that students refrain from bringing in any extra binders or  notebooks, folders, and supplies. Also, please no toys.  No pencil sharpeners for inside their desks.

    *Please try to encourage your child to memorize their bus number, route number,  student id number, and all log in info*



    The best gift that we can give your child is the support that they need to MEMORIZE their multiplication facts. Memorization of facts frees up all of their working memory so that they can concentrate on the bigger task - solving the real problem before them.

    In our classroom, we will work hard to be "Bucket Fillers", not "Bucket Dippers"!

    But what are "Bucket Fillers" & "Bucket Dippers"?

    We're going to read the book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today?

    Image result for bucketfilling

    This book tells the story how everyone, all over the world, carries an invisible bucket with them. The way that we treat others can fill their buckets when we are kind, or we can dip from their buckets when we use unkind words and actions. Other people can fill or dip from our buckets too.

    In the first few days of school, we will spend time learning how we can fill other peoples' buckets and learning how to avoid dipping from them! You'll be able to fill your friends' buckets in our classroom by writing positive notes to them and using kind words!
